Restoring a Water Damage Attic

It’s very important to check the plumbing on a regular basis to see if there are any frozen pipes or pipes waiting to explode at any minute! Air ducts must be inspected as well, since water can travel through them at very fast rates. Be sure to check for any cracks within the insulation framing. A certified inspector or plumbing professional can give you direct feedback and save you a fortune in repairs later on.

If a pipe does begin to leak, you may notice a trickle of water coming down to a room below. This could be the master bedroom or a bathroom area. If you spot tiny droplets of water raining down from the ceiling above, it is most likely coming from somewhere in the attic. Stopping the water from overflowing is vital. You should be on your guard if a severe thunderstorm is approaching. Now would be a good time to clean out your gutters and take preventative measures.

Beware of any peeling drywall. That’s a clear indicator that mold is about to form. Attics must be cleaned out and checked for mildew growth as well. Old bookcases and structures may be suitable breeding havens for mold and mildew. You might begin to notice a musty odor sneaking in through the vents. Mold carries a pungent smell that is toxic in nature and very harmful to breathe in for long periods of time.
