Water Leaks Usually Lead to Water Damage. A Tampa Bay homeowner started to notice a discoloration in her hardwood floor in the hallway of her Tampa home. At first, she thought maybe the dog had an accident and tried cleaning the floor. As the spot began to get bigger and bigger, she decided to call I Find Leaks to check her home for a possible water leak underneath the concrete foundation of her Tampa home. As it turns out, the water leak was not under the concrete foundation, but in a wall adjacent to the hallway. The leak occurred on a plumbing pipe and was very small. Over time, this small water leak seeped underneath the wood floors of this home. Since the middle of the hallway is where foot traffic occurs, or people walk, this is the spot where the water damage showed up first. By walking on water damaged floor, it soaks or pushes the water further to the surface even though the edge of the wall was closest to the actual water leak. If you see a water spot show up in walls, ceilings or floors, give a team of expert water leak detectives a call today. Water leaks can lead to water damage which if not dried properly will lead to possible mold damage, black mold or nasty mold problems. Mold removal projects are much more invasive to properties than water damage projects are. It’s important to identify the source of water leaks and properly dry water damaged areas quickly and efficiently to save costly time and repairs later down the road.
