Discolored or Mold on the Walls

Water stains on drywall, ceilings, or floors, usually indicates a water leak. Damp spots can quickly turn into mold in our hot environment. You also may notice a musty odor in your home if you have a leaky pipe.

Cracks in the Tile, Wall, or Concrete Foundation

As a home settles it may experience cracks, but if you just noticed them it may be a reason to be concerned. Water slowly dripping out of a pipe can cause cracks, weaken wall structures, and even the foundation.
