Owning a home is the American dream, but with it comes a lot of responsibility. Water leaks are extremely damaging to any home. Research shows between 2,000 and 20,000 gallons of water are lost every year in a typical home.
All that water has to go somewhere. Whether it is seeping into your drywall behind a wall or coming up through plumbing pipes under a concrete slab, damage is taking place.
Because these water leaks happen behind the scenes, they can be difficult for the homeowner to find. Sure, you can take a sledgehammer to the wall in hopes of finding it or rip up the flooring, but along with the water leak, you also have to repair the wall.
It is also important to know, homeowners are also responsible for the plumbing pipes in their home, even the ones they can’t see. Most insurance companies do not cover the damages from a slow water leak that may have been found during routine maintenance.
Common Indications of a Water Leak Include:
Discolored, warped, or wet floorboards, look around water using appliances such as the dishwasher. Warm areas on the floor can indicate a slab leak.
Loose tiles in the bathroom, unexplained mold, peeling wallpaper or blistering paint, are all signs of a leaking pipe behind the walls. Check visible pipes under the sinks for any moisture.
Other visible plumbing leaks include low water pressure, pipes rattle when the water is turned on, slow drains, and discolored water.
