Just because you live in Arizona doesn’t mean you don’t need to worry about water damage. The Phoenix area gets hit with flooding rains at least once a year, and you also can have water damage that comes from inside your home, such as from a leaky pipe or appliance. To minimize damage from water in your home, it’s important to recognize some of the common signs.
One of the most obvious signs that you might have water damage in your home is the presence of water somewhere that it shouldn’t be. This could include standing water or moisture in an attic space on on a floor in a room that doesn’t have plumbing.
Another common sign of water damage in your home is the presence of water spots or discoloration. You might notice this on ceilings, walls and even flooring. This is a likely sign that you have a small leak or that you had a one-time water infiltration.
If your water damage happened a while ago and was never discovered or if it is a small ongoing problem, it could lead to mold growth, which is another common sign that you have water damage.

Damage to wood, drywall or other materials could be a sign of water damage. When these materials are exposed to water for an extended time, it can lead to rotting and other damage.
