Not all plumbing leaks are as obvious as a dripping tap, and can last months or years before being noticed. Florida is a wet and humid place, but if you start to notice water damage coming from inside your home, this may indicate a more serious problem. If your water bill is starting to run excessively high, or your water meter is showing an increase in water usage, this is sometimes your only indication of a leak. Though often they are hidden ‘behind the scenes’ of your walls and flooring, and can be impossible to find without a trained professional, we have a few leak finding tips to help you out.
Major damage can result from a leak that is left too long. This damage can take the form of water damage to your building materials, ruining walls and flooring. Additionally, a damp environment can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which pose a health risk, especially to asthmatics. Listed below are common places where a plumbing leak may occur, as well as how to spot it.
If you experience any of these signs at all, they may be indicating to you that there is a build-up of moisture in your home that needs to be addressed. If you suspect a leak, we suggest two very important steps.
