Your Residential Roof May Leaking, Look For The Six Signs
Six Signs That Your Roof Is Leaking
As many plumbing experts know, leaking roofs can cause a plethora of unwanted problems such as water damage in your home. If these problems pop up, they can adversely affect your emotional and economic equilibrium. For this reason, it's good to be able to detect signs of a leaky roof early. In so doing, you can attain the professional assistance necessary to correct the problem and prevent structural damage to your property. With that idea in mind, consider whether you're experiencing any of the following six signs of a leaky roof:
1. A Loss of Granules
The granules of your roof's shingles can grow loose as a result of aging and ongoing exposure due to water damage. When your shingles start to lose their granules, the roof is subjected to faster deterioration.
2. Buckling Shingles
The shingles of your roof can start to buckle as a result of hot air coming from your attic. This hot air is an indication of poor ventilation and can lead to a build-up of moisture.
3. Mold And Mildew Growth
If you notice mold growing inside your home or on the roof, the growth could have been caused by a leaky roof. This is the case because a leaky roof will create the excess water and moist environment that mold likes to thrive in.
4. Roof Rot
Another sign of a leaky roof is roof rot. Roof rot is a term that refers to the process of your roof deteriorating rapidly. When this rapid deterioration transpires, your property can become increasingly susceptible to water damage because of potential leaks.
5. Damaged Skylights
Damaged skylights can cause your rainwater to leak into the home and cause water damage.
6. Damaged Flashing
When your flashing is improperly sealed or damaged against your roof, it can make it much simpler for excess water to start seeping into your home.
If you find that your property has been subjected to a leaky roof, you need to address and resolve the issue immediately. The best course of action is to contact a team of trained, IICRC-certified water damage remediation specialists. The team to trust is SERVPRO. All of our technicians will offer you the goal-oriented, detail-centered care necessary to restore your property with lightning speed

How to tell if something is dry...
You cannot use your hands to adequately determine if something is dry because skin has a moisture content of 25 percent. Dry wood for example, has a moisture content of about 10 percent. If you feel wood that has moisture content of 20 percent, your skin tells your brain the wood is dry because it is drier than your skin. In actuality it is twice as wet as it should be. Just because it feels dry to you it might be saturated with water and not drying it properly could cause even more damage.
The Franchise Professionals here at SERVPRO of Texarkana is equipped with the right equipment to help ensure a structure and contents are quickly and thoroughly dried after water damage.
Different Causes of Mold Growth in your Home
Mold Damage is a condition that a lot of homeowners deal with on a regular basis. The main problem with mold is that it doesn't need that much for it to both grow and thrive in your household. Things such as darkness, warmth, humidity and a food source for drywall or wood can all help the mold spores to both thrive and expand throughout the home. In some cases, the mold is very visible like on a bathroom ceiling just above the shower stall. In other cases, you may not even know that you have it because it is in a crawlspace or attic.
If your home has a moisture problem or is prone to floods and leaks, you are living in an environment that is more vulnerable to mold damage problems. This is because you are attracting the mold to your home even if you are not aware of it. Moist environments with excess warmth and food sources for the mold to grow is attractive to the fungus and can help it to grow continually until it becomes out of control and needs professional remediation. In this case, only an expert mold remediation service company, like SERVPRO, will be able to assist you in getting rid of the mold problem.
Mold spores can be found in the air at times, especially in homes that have other factors such as moisture, dampness, and high humidity levels. The mold spores can thrive in this condition and continue to multiply until they become a huge problem for you.
Mold spores cannot grow unless the area in which they are present is moisture and humidity. In fact and to be precise, a humidity level of about 55 percent is needed for mold actually to develop and begin to multiply. Many homes that are in humid climates or deal with lots of rain can have more moisture problems present within their homes than others. Also, leaking plumbing pipes or floods can create humidity in the air. Taking care of plumbing leaks and roof leaks can help to prevent these problems.
Another thing to keep in mind is that mold likes humid and dark environments, which makes your basement, crawlspace and attic all primary locations for mold to grow and thrive over time. It is vital that you continually look around the home to check for mold and to contact SERVPRO at the first sign of a mold problem.
