The foundation of any home is its flooring. It’s what we walk on, place our furniture on, and trust to keep us elevated and secure. However, various factors can compromise the integrity of our floors, some obvious and some subtle. Here’s why every homeowner should consider getting a floor inspection, especially after incidents like storm damage.
1. Why Floor Inspections?
Floor inspections aren’t just about aesthetics; they’re about safety and longevity. Just as you’d inspect your roof for damages after a storm, the same principle applies to your flooring, especially after events that can cause water damage.
Storm and Water Damage: As mentioned in our previous discussions about weather awareness, Atlanta experiences unpredictable storms that can cause water damages. Whether from flooding or leaks, prolonged water exposure can compromise the structural integrity of your floors.
Hidden Damages: Much like the invisible damages wind can cause to your roof, floors too can have unseen damages. Sub-flooring damages or moisture trapped beneath tiles or wooden boards can lead to mold growth or structural weakening.
2. Signs You Need a Floor Inspection
Warped Flooring: If you notice any buckling, sagging, or unevenness in your flooring, it’s a clear indication that something’s amiss below the surface.
Persistent Dampness: If certain areas of your floor feel consistently damp or if you notice discoloration, it could indicate water damage.
Unpleasant Odors: A musty smell can be a sign of mold growth, often resulting from unresolved water damage.
