Plumbing leaks are never something to ignore. What can be seen as a slow drip, one day, can easily turn into a burst pipe and big flood the next. The thing is, it’s not always that easy to spot leaks, especially if they’re coming from a pipe that’s located behind a wall. Luckily, there are a few signs that can help you determine if you have a leak.
If you start to see dark spots on your ceilings or walls, or you happen to notice that your wood floors are suddenly warped or cracked, then you might have water damage, due to a plumbing leak. This is particularly the case from leaks happening behind your drywall. Therefore, you should have a plumber inspect your pipes and make any repairs before your home ends up at risk for serious structural damage.
Leaks and excess moisture can put your home at risk for mold and mildew growth. Areas particularly susceptible to mold have limited sunlight, such as your basement or crawlspace, as well some bathrooms, too. If you happen to notice any mold spots or mildew-like spots around your home, you should have your plumbing checked for leaks.
Higher Water Bills
This is the one many homeowners get upset about — and understandably so. Even the smallest leak can result in dozens to hundreds of gallons of wasted water, which ultimately shows up on your utility bill at the end of the month. If your water bill seems much higher than usual, you may want to have your home inspected for leaks.
