Signs of Hidden Water LeaksLeaking pipes in hidden places can wreak serious havoc on your home. Water damage can cause bad smells, compromise the structural integrity of your home, and quickly increase your water bill. Therefore, it’s important that you pay attention to the warning signs and unearth any secret leaks before the damage is too catastrophic.

Here are a few ways to locate a hidden leak in your home.

Search for Moldy Spots

When mold forms in unexpected places, it can be a sign of leakage in the area. Mold in your bathroom might not be as big of a warning sign because the room stays fairly moist most of the time, but if mold appears in other dry areas of your home, you might have a problem.

Pay Close Attention to Your Water Bill

If your bill suddenly increases for no apparent reason, it could be because more water is being consumed than you realize due to a hidden leak.

Identify Stains in the Walls or Ceilings

The rooms beneath the kitchen or bathrooms might accumulate dark stains. If the patches seem to grow or look like they need to be replaced, it could be because water is constantly leaking in the area.

Look for Warped Walls or Floors

Excessive exposure to water can cause drywall and hardwood floors to bubble, warp, and even fall apart. If things get too out of hand, this can be a pricey problem to solve. Walk across your floors and test the boards to see if any feel spongy or loose. Even tile floors can start to experience wear and tear due to leaks.
