If you suspect your home is suffering from water damage, be attentive for signs such as these:

1. Stains and discoloration in ceilings can be a sign of water damage. Walls near the ceiling also may have cracked and peeling paint

2. Small pools of water in areas of the house are the most obvious indicator of water damage. This is more likely to happen in the bathroom area, near the toilet, or near the washing machine or sinks.

3. A strange odor coming from the walls or ceiling might mean there is mold in the house resulting from water damage. Mold is formed in humid environments, often in walls that absorb water. Usually, mold is accompanied by discoloration and darker spots.
