Does Your Building Have a Plumbing Leak?
We’re all familiar with the sound of a dripping tap, but far fewer people are aware of the signs of a plumbing leak. Leaks aren’t always obvious, and sometimes you’ll only be able to see one or two signs instead of the usual dripping water and dampness.
Below, we’ve listed some of the most common signs of a plumbing leak. If you’ve noticed any of these signs around your home or building, it’s important that you contact an expert plumber for more help:
Dampness in flooring, especially in carpets. Leaking pipes can cause water to seep into your home’s flooring and affect materials like carpet and wood. If you notice a damp patch in your carpet, it could be a sign that a pipe is damaged and leaking.
Mold and mildew development, especially in walls and around plumbing fixtures such as bathtubs, showers, and sinks. Mold can develop quickly when water leaks out from a plumbing fixture and makes your home’s building materials damp.
Foundation cracks, which can range from minor to substantial. Obvious cracks in your home or building’s foundation are often the main sign of a slab leak, which can result in major structural issues for your home or building.
Unusually high utility bills caused by excessive water consumption. Large leaks can often double or triple your water consumption, resulting in higher bills and unexpected expenses.
Dripping, “running water” noises, especially when you aren’t actively running a tap or using a faucet. If you notice the sound of running water, it could be caused by a leaking tap, plumbing fixture or pipe.
Wet patches in your yard or garden. These often occur when your water supply line or sewer pipe develops a breakage, resulting in tap water or wastewater being released out into your yard.
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, it’s important to take action quickly. Leaks can cause major property damage if they’re left to develop, but most leaks can be detected and repaired quickly by an experienced, qualified plumber.
