It is common for us to find moisture stains. Some moisture stains could lead to extensive damage to the structural framing in your home.
They can be an indication of water leaks which can if undetected and not rectified, cause serious structural damage and mould growth before they are discovered.
Excess water and moisture get absorbed in wood, drywall, insulation and wallpaper which can lead to warping, stains, bubbling and deterioration; nowhere is safe from condensation, burst pipes, or unseen leaks.
This is especially true if the source of the leaking water is from the top of the building. Your insulation, drywall, timber framing, electrical conduits, floors and ceiling could all suffer. A Ceiling may collapse, and wooden floors and other timber structures could warp out of shape. The cost of repairing water damaged structures can be astronomical, so it’s important that you have your home checked, even annually and especially after violent storms.
