Hidden water damage left
Water is a powerful force. Any doubt of this fact can be erased by a simple visit to the Grand Canyon. And while your home is in no danger of becoming one of the Seven Wonders of the World, water can wreak havoc on a much smaller scale.  

Water damage can come from several sources: floods, burst pipes, leaky roofs, seepage, etc. Many types are obvious, as is the damage caused by them. But even if you can’t see the damage right away, a slow flow of water can often be worse than obvious leaks. Left untreated, it can cause:  

  • Pipe corrosion
  • Foundation damage
  • Foul odors
  • Mold  

Repairing hidden water damage can be an even greater challenge. Depending upon the source of the damage, it may or may not be covered by homeowner’s insurance. In the case of mold, getting rid of the problem may be a monumental undertaking.  

How can you protect yourself from this menace? A professional inspection by LONG PAW INC. HOME INSPECTION can help. Using advanced moisture detection devices, coupled with years of experience, we can often detect water damage long before it becomes a problem.
