Water pipes in our Orlando homes are often taken for granted, bringing fresh water in and waste water out. It can be difficult to detect a water leak in the vast network of pipes. Sometimes these leaks are obvious, while other leaks may leave you searching for that elusive drip.
When to contact a professional leak detection service:
Higher than Normal Water Bill
An increase in your water bill is a good indication you may have a water leak somewhere in your plumbing system.
Sound of Running Water
The sound of water dripping or running can be difficult to hear, especially if it is underneath a concrete slab foundation. Depending where the leak is located subtle sounds of water can be heard and can indicate a leak.
Wet or Damp Spots on the Walls or Floors
Warm areas on the floor can occur when the hot water pipe has a leak. While leaks in cold water pipe are more difficult to notice, you may also feel wet or moist area on the flooring.
Low Water Pressure
Whether it is sporadic or constant, low water pressure can indicate a water leak. Check to see if all the faucets and shower heads all have the same water pressure or only certain areas of your home.
It’s important to react promptly to leaks, since water damage can quickly lead to structural and pose a safety threat to your loved ones and employees. Mold is not always visible and can live anywhere there is moisture. This unnoticed health threat can cause significant ailments and respiratory problems.
