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.
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.
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.
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.
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
