We have the expertise and equipment to properly detect, diagnose, and repair plumbing leaks in Indianapolis, Fisher, and Lebanon, Indiana.
5 Signs You May Have a Plumbing Leak
Depending on the severity and location, a tiny leak may go undetected for weeks, months, or even years. Knowing what to watch for can help you identify a problem sooner and prevent further damage or loss. Contact the pros at Chapman right away if you notice any of the following:
Higher Than Usual Water Bills
Your water bill tends to fluctuate throughout the year, rising during the summer months with pool usage, landscaping, watering, and cleaning, or even just increased frequency of bathing. But your water bill is one of the top indicators of a leak in your home. If you can’t find an explanation for a rise in your water bill, you likely have a leak.
Mold and Mildew
You might expect mold or mildew in your bathroom around your shower, but if it shows up somewhere that shouldn’t be exposed to frequent water, you may have a leak. Check if the area is wet and where the water may be coming from. It could be inside the wall or coming from the ceiling.
Standing water and saturated materials, such as wood or drywall, will emit a musty odor. If you notice this smell even after cleaning, you may have a hidden water leak.
Stained or Damaged Structure
If you notice water stains, warping, bubbling, or sagging walls, floors, or ceilings, you likely have a leak. Some of this can be caused by high humidity, in which case you may consider replacing your AC or installing a dehumidifier. But if the damage is localized to a particular area, it’s more likely to be a leak.
Water Meter Spikes
If you suspect a leak at your home, shut off your main water supply valve to your home or building. Look at the water meter. If it is still running, you have a leak.
