- Choosing Leak detection services
There are several structural damage indications of water leaks around your home:
- Cracks in your walls: A small leak from a pipe in a home can cause foundational damage over time. As water leaks, it causes a shift in the foundation of a home, which can lead to wall cracks forming. If not repaired, the foundation will continue to degrade and the crack(s) to grow more severe. If you notice vertical or diagonal cracks in your walls, it is imperative you contact a plumber immediately.
- Damages or stains: A plumbing leak can affect several areas of your home. If you notice damp, warped, bubbling, or stained floors, walls, or ceilings, contact a plumbing team immediately. Ignoring the cause of the damage could lead to further structural damage. It could also put your family’s health at risk by allowing mold and mildew to have a chance to grow.
- Loose fittings: Over time the seals around your toilet or bathtub may come loose. This becomes an issue because seals are what keep the fixtures held in place. With loose seals, moisture can escape. This could lead to water build up and damage to the floors. If you notice that your floors are sinking or sagging near these fixtures, contact a reputable plumbing company to repair the leaks before they get worse.

Have you noticed the sound of running water when no one else is home? Does your water pressure seem unusually low? These are huge indications that there is a leak in one or more of your pipes. Water should be stationary unless it is in use and water pressure should be consistent. To detect a leak, make sure all appliances and faucets are turned off. Walk around your house to listen for the sound of running or dripping water to intensify. Take note of where you notice this and call a leak detection company to fix it as soon as possible. Paying a plumbing service for a small leak job now could save a tremendous amount of money in the future.

Change in Water Bill
It is normal for water bill amounts to fluctuate as things change for your family. In summer, your bill may go up from filling kiddie pools and taking extra showers. Having a new baby means washing more clothes and sterilizing dishes, toys, and equipment. However, a huge jump in your water bill can be cause for alarm, when nothing has changed for your family. Take the time to check your water meter. If you notice that the numbers change, despite the fact that no one is using water, then you have a water leak somewhere in your plumbing system. Calling a plumbing company can save you money over time on your water bill and on extensive repairs needed by ignoring the problem.
