The Most Common Signs of Home Damage

Smoke, storms, fire, and water each affect your building in distinct ways, many of which are hard to detect until the problem has gotten out of hand. For this reason, you need to be on the lookout for each of these issues:


  • Water Damage - If you notice brown or yellow stains or a texture change on your floorboards or walls, water has likely infiltrated them. Water damage can also lead to mold, which often produces a foul smell. The Kapi team has extensive experience with water damage restoration.
  • Fire Damage - The most obvious sign of fire damage is soot and stains, which will show up virtually everywhere that the fire spreads. But there are also subtler signs of this issue. Fire can weaken floorboards and other key parts of your building; only by checking each board can you make sure it's solid enough for safety. Also, the water used to put out the fire may get lodged in the insulation, making it less effective and increasing the risk of mold growth.
  • Smoke Damage - Shortly after the fire has been put out, you're likely to notice discolored areas of walls that were heavily exposed to smoke. You may also find that pipes, grates, and other metal products in your building have become rusty.
  • Storm Damage - Because your roof is your first line of defense against inclement weather, it's likely to bear the clearest signs of storm damage. You should also take a look at the gutter, which may have become clogged with debris or separated from the side of the building. Finally, areas around the chimney should be inspected, as this is one of the most common areas where roof leaks originate. It's essential that you call Kapi's professional restoration team as soon as you notice these problems. Don't leave your house or workplace vulnerable to moisture, wind, and debris.
