When Should You Get Water Leak Detection Services?

September 3, 2020 | Blog

Plumbing systems are designed to be seen as little as possible, so it’s no wonder that finding plumbing issues is so difficult. Since your plumbing is out of sight and out of mind for most homeowners, leaks can stay invisible for a long time – causing damage to the rest of the home. Let’s break down everything you need to know about leak detection, including signs of a leak, possible damage and what to do if you suspect a plumbing leak.

What Kind of Damage Do Water Leaks Cause?

It’s important to understand what kind of damage an unnoticed or ignored leak can cause. The most immediate damage a leak will cause is cosmetic water damage, followed by mold and mildew from prolonged moisture.

However, a leak that isn’t addressed in a timely manner can cause structural damage and even affect the foundation of a home. To avoid serious and costly damage, homeowners should learn how to detect possible leaks and have them fixed immediately.

How Do I Know If I Have a Water Leak?

Luckily, discovering that there is a leak is much simpler than finding out where it is. There are several symptoms of water leaks that are quite noticeable – if you know what to look for. Homeowners should keep an eye out for the following:

  • Abnormally high water bills
  • The sound of water running even when no water is in use
  • Damp or wet walls or floors
  • Cracked walls
  • Unpleasant odors, which could indicate mold and mildew

When You Should Call a Professional

If you notice any of the symptoms above, call a plumber for leak detection services immediately. At Lee’s Air Conditioning and Plumbing, our video pipe inspections allow the technician to visually find any leak in your home’s pipes.

We also recommend that you employ a water leak detector if you buy a house in order to ensure that any existing problems are addressed. If you live in an older home, you may want to use leak detection services to find any leaks and assess the overall state of the plumbing system.
