Signs You Have a Water Leak

Water leaks are not always as obvious as water pooling on the floor or rushing from beneath a sink. Leaks can be subtle and easy to miss but still cause just as much damage to your home as those in plain sight. Look out for these hidden signs of water leaks:

  • Stains, dark spots, or peeling paint on your drywall
  • Sagging ceilings, bubbles in the paint, or pillowing
  • Wood flooring, molding, or trim that has warped or buckled
  • Tapping sounds when the water is on
  • Sounds of dripping or rushing water when all faucets are off
  • Lower water pressure than normal
  • Unexplained high water bills

Our expert plumbers at IAQ Medics can identify hidden leaks and fix them before they get worse. Contact IAQ Medics!

What Causes a Water Leak

Every house has unique ac, heating and plumbing issues. When it comes to water leaks, the underlying causes are likely one of the following:

  • Cracked or corroded pipes
  • Clogged drains
  • Excess water pressure
  • Loose water connectors
  • Damaged or worn-out pipe joints
  • Aged or broken appliances seals
  • Tree root intrusions into your piping system

Soaring water bills, damp or musty odors coming from your drains, and changes in your shower or sink water flow, are signs you may have an active water leak that needs repair. Schedule an Indoor Air Quality Medics licensed plumber to inspect your plumbing for water leak detection and repair.
