How To Know if You Have a Water Leak in Your Home

July 7, 2022 | Blog

Have you noticed some water pressure issues when using your sink? Or maybe your water doesn’t get as hot as it used to when you start a bath? If you’ve experienced either of these inconveniences, you may be dealing with a leak!

At Natchez Heating and Cooling, our professional plumbing team knows just how to help. We provide all our clients with top-notch leak detection services and water heater inspections so that we can identify an issue before any permanent damage is done. Read on for more information about hidden water leaks and the consequences of ignoring one!

Signs You Have A Water Leak

Wondering what other signs you may have missed when it comes to a leak in your home? Some of the most common ones are:

Overly Expensive Water Bills

Does your water bill seem to be increasing rapidly for no reason? This may indicate a hidden leak in your house that needs remedying as soon as possible.

Musty Smells

Are mysterious odors floating around your home? Unpleasant aromas can signify mold or mildew growing in a damp area. These kinds of bacteria emit nasty smells and can cause respiratory problems, inflame allergies, or exacerbate asthmatic symptoms if left unchecked.

Strange Stains

Have you noticed dark spots, discoloration, or peeling areas around your house? Odd blotches and blistering wallpaper usually mean a leak is wreaking havoc in your wall materials.

Bowed Floors

If any of the floors or ceilings in your home are unnaturally bowed, a hidden leak is most likely the culprit. Warped wood and sagging floorboards are almost always caused by water damage.

Weird Noises

The plumbing in your house is usually designed to be as noiseless as possible, so if you hear strange noises, you may need to call a professional to check for leaks. The audible rattling or hissing of pipes, and the gurgling sounds of water where it shouldn’t be usually mean a leak is nearby.

What Happens If I Ignore A Potential Water Leak?

Many homeowners have attempted to find and fix simple leaks, such as dripping faucets or faulty showerheads. But not all leaks are easy to identify. Because every property has a complex layout of interwoven pipes, finding the source of a leak can be incredibly difficult. Yet you mustn’t ignore a leak because it can have a lasting impact on:

  • Your family’s health and wellbeing
  • The structural integrity of your home
  • And the aesthetic of your living spaces
