Signs You Should Call a Plumber for Leak Detection

Approximately 10% of homeowners have leaks in their homes that go undetected, and this results in 90 gallons of water being wasted each day. Some homeowners do not know there are leaks until it is too late, resulting in thousands of dollars in property damage along with mold growth. Avoid calamity and save money by watching out for these top signs you need leak detection services.

Sounds of Running Water

Water always flows through your pipes, even when you have not turned on the taps. If there is a leak present, you may sometimes hear sounds of running water, even when you have not turned on any water source. Of course, not all leaks can be heard because some are silent, which is the reason they can go undetected for so long.

Pooling Water

If you see water pooling in certain areas, such as near appliances or pipes, there is a leak present. Sometimes, the solution can be as simple as replacing an appliance or plumbing fixture.

Your Ceiling Is Sagging or Floors Are Buckling

If areas of your ceiling are sagging, this may indicate that you have a silent leak coming from a pipe in the ceiling that is between floors. Sometimes, leaks between floors can also cause your floors to buckle. Leaving this problem unchecked can lead to ceiling or floor collapse, which can cause severe injury.

Drop in Water Pressure

Sometimes, leaks can cause your water pressure to drop. If your water has been running at normal pressure and then the pressure suddenly drops, the likelihood of a leak being present is high.

Random Wet Spots

Sometimes, leaks cause random wet spots to appear. It is easy to dismiss the idea there is a leak present because one may conclude that the wet spots are the result of a spill or high humidity in the home. If you continue to see these random wet spots appearing, you may have a slow leak.

Mold Growth

Where there is mold, water is not far away. This is because mold needs a moist environment to grow and thrive. If you notice mold spots on your walls, ceilings, or floors, chances are high you will have a leak in that vicinity.

As soon as you notice these signs, you need to call a plumber straight away. The longer you allow the problem to continue, the larger it will become. If you let leaks to go on long enough, the structural integrity of your home will be negatively impacted. Contact us at Buckeye Plumbing in Dayton, OH today for leak detection.

Corey and Blake did an excellent job replacing our water heater. They showed up on time, explained what the job entailed, and presented me with an estimate within 20 minutes of being on-site. The customer service reps at the office were also very friendly and answered any questions I had.
