As Florida experiences regular rainfall, home and business owners must consider ways to protect their structures. While water in everyday life often flows in a predetermined controlled manner, free-flowing sources of water in large amounts has the ability to make buildings dangerous and susceptible to structural damage. When the levee breaks, it’s important to know how to detect water damage, identify structural damage, prevent clogged gutters and know who to call if your gutter structure fails.
Soliciting help for water damage restoration and prevention measures from a reputable restoration company, like Maven Construction Group, will help you save time, money and frustration in the long run.
It can be difficult to identify water damage. Water moves quickly, seeping into any place it can without obvious signs. Water damage disasters can quickly get out of control because of hidden pockets of moisture that aren’t apparent to the eye due to clogged gutters and heavy rain. Aside from pooling or trickling water, there are common signs your home or business may require inspections for leaks and water damage. When asking about leak detection Gainesville, FL residents contact their trusted source, Maven Construction Group, for quick and helpful answers.
If you smell a musty, damp scent in your home or office (similar to the scent of wet cardboard), your structure may be suffering from water damage. If the moisture sits unrepaired in your structure for long enough, it can cause a plethora of problems including awful odors that linger behind even after the repair is eventually completed.
Staining from leaking water can cause discoloration to walls, floors and ceilings as the materials begins to rot. These colors can range from brown, copper, or yellow, and may or may not be wet to the touch.
Mold in your home is never a good sign of what’s to come. Identifying mold in your home or business can be symptomatic of larger structural issues like water damage or storm drain damage.

According to home restoration and maintenance experts, costly structural damage can be the product of failing to clean out gutters. When it rains in Gainesville, leaves and other debris that collect in your gutters and on your roof can accumulate and become mushy, making them near impossible to suck up with a vacuum down the road. If water forms on top of your roof when your gutters are clogged with leaves and other debris, pooling water can seep into your house through shingles and sub-roofing causing a need for costly repairs. Maven Construction group recommends clearing your gutters every month or so to avoid these problems.
