The Most Common Signs of Plumbing Leaks

Where is that water coming from? If water is collecting and pooling where it shouldn’t be, especially near a wall where pipes are located, then a plumbing leak is the likely culprit.

Water Pooling

Spike In Utility Bill

Where are those extra costs coming from? If you are having trouble identifying the reason for an increase in your water bill, it could be a hidden leak. With water running non-stop, it’s easy for the costs to rise.

Sudden Mold or Mildew

The presence of mold and mildew can be an indication of a slow plumbing leak. While mold on the ceiling could also indicate a roof leak, calling out a plumbing technician to assess where the leak originated will help in forming a repair plan.

Warped hardwood or damp carpet

Why does the flooring look like that? Water underneath hardwood will begin to warm the wood flooring due to moisture. With carpet, it will get noticeably damp from the effects of a plumbing leak.

Musty Smell

What is that musty smell? Water that sits over a period of time will take on a musty smell. If there is a specific place in your home that suddenly smells of mildew, it could be an indication of accumulated water from a slow leak.
