Signs Your Pipes are Leaking
For any homeowner, a pipe leak is a serious problem. Many people deal with this issue all the time, but they may not be aware of a potential problem until the situation worsens, causing you to require expensive repairs. Before this happens, you should know exactly what to look for in order to determine if you have a pipe leak.
Increase In Water Bills
One of the potential issues that a person may experience is an increase in the water bills. This could mean that there is more water being used because of the amount going through the leak. Your home will then need to compensate for the amount of water being lost in the leak.
Damage in Walls, Floors, or Ceilings
While there are some leaks that may be located away from your home completely, others can occupy the pipes in the walls, floors, and ceilings. When this happens, the water can seep into the wood, causing significant damage to the affected area. This can lead to stains, sagging walls or ceilings, and warping or bubbling of the home’s structure.
Mold or Mildew
If the walls in your home away from the shower are starting to develop mold or mildew, it may be caused by the excess water building up and accumulating in the walls. This is the perfect scenario for mold and mildew, making it easier for the dangerous problem to grow.
