How to Tell If Your Ottawa Home Has a Leak

How to Tell If Your Ottawa Home Has a Leak

Water leaking in your home isn't just going to leave a wet spot in the area it drips, it could create a mess and lead to decay in various paint and drywall products. It can also run up your water bill high even if it's only leaking in small drips. Whether it's a faucet leaking in a sink or a leak from a pipe from a water line, you should have the leak repaired as soon as possible so that you can save your home from mold and mildew and ultimately save costs.

Spotting Leaks

Most water leaks are fairly easy to spot due to signs such as turning your sink or bath faucet off but still seeing water coming out of the spout. If your home has a basement and you see puddles of water building up anywhere down there, or you simply look underneath your house and see signs of water down there, those are pretty good indicators that you have leaks in your home. Some leaks are a little harder to spot if they're happening where pipes are running and only leaking in very small drips. But if you notice areas such as walls or ceilings have dark spots on them, you might want to investigate leak possibilities.

Addressing Leaks

If you find a leak whether small or big, it's usually a good idea to shut your main water supply valve off to make sure the leaking stops. Even though you might think about repairing leaks by using cheap home handyman solutions, you might either contaminate your water or further damage your lines if you're not sure what you're doing. That's why you should call a professional to have the leaks repaired in your Ottawa home.
