Is something sinister growing in your home? It’s not the blob or any other kind of monster. Well, it could be a monster plumbing leak that you’re not aware of- yet. But you will be. Some plumbing leaks take longer to show themselves, but once the usual signs and symptoms start appearing, you’ll know pretty quickly that a problem exists. The trick is to catch the issue as soon as possible so that you can avoid some of the nastier secondary consequences and further damages to your property.

What has your water usage been like?

A good first place to check for a possible plumbing leak is your water bill. What has your water usage been like lately? Has there been a huge jump in usage recently- and without much explanation for it? If so, then it’s a good indicator that an investigation should take place. This would be a good time to call for professional leak detection help if you can’t seem to find any other signs of a leak around the home.

The signs might be there, but you just haven’t been paying attention.

Many of us are busy during the day- and at night. We simply don’t have the time to look for small changes around the home. But in the case of a plumbing leak, missing those small details can be costly. It’s critical to be aware of your home and any changes to a wall, ceiling, or your floors. If there’s a damp spot on some corner of the home, your flooring is bubbling up, or perhaps there’s a small, strange puddle in the yard that for some reason you haven’t noticed before, take action on these signs of a plumbing leak before the leak has a chance to grow in size. Your headache in dealing with the problem will grow the longer the leak is left unfixed.

Don’t kick the can down the road.

If you’ve found any signs of a water leak, no matter how small, do not ignore the problem. Leaks don’t go away. In fact, they just keep getting bigger along with the potential damages to your home. The right thing to do is to call a plumbing leak expert that can detect the leak and affordably fix it in a way that won’t damage the home.
