Water Leak Red Flags
Of course, not everyone remembers to be proactive about water leak detection. If you suspect your home may have a problem, there are multiple warning signs that can confirm your suspicion. These include:
- A sudden spike in your water bill
- A noticeable drop in water pressure
- Running or dripping at night when no one else is using the water
- Wet spots or discolored areas, particularly on the floor near sinks, faucets and other fixtures
- A musty smell, wet drywall or other signs of mold
If you’re certain that your home has a leak, the next step is to determine where. If you’re trying to locate the leak, help from a plumbing professional is invaluable. At Home Climates, our staff is skilled in water leak detection and can quickly pinpoint the source of the problem.
