Trust your nose! Identifying water damage before it's visible
You can’t always see water damage, but you can almost always smell it. Most water damage odors are hard to ignore and alert you that there is damage in your home. Odors from water damage can be noticeable immediately or can occur sometime after the water is removed. Here are some common odors:
Muddy smell: If outdoor flooding has entered the home, you may notice an earthy smell associated with lakes.
Sewage smell: If water damage in your home is a result of a backed-up sewer, you will immediately notice the odor of raw sewage.
Musty odors: Musty odors occur after the fact. This is a sign that mold is growing in your home.
