Keep reading to find out how you can know if you have these kinds of plumbing issues.
Mildew & Mold
One of the most obvious signs that there’s a leak somewhere in your home is the presence of either mildew or mold. These substances are drawn to moisture, so a recurring problem may signify a plumbing issue.
Superficial Water Damage
An early sign that a leak is starting to spread through your home is the presence of damage to your home’s paint or wallpaper. If they start to blister and peel, then it’s likely that water is seeping into the wall.
As leaks continue and damage grows, it’s not unusual to see structural damage around your home. Walls can begin to warp, drywall can begin to bubble, and floors can start to buckle. If you start seeing this level of damage, it’s best to contact a professional immediately.
