Signs That Your Home Has a Water Leak
Our plumbing professionals have years of experience detecting and diagnosing water leaks for homeowners. If you see any of these signs, give us a call immediately. The main signs that your house may be experiencing leaking water include:
Mildew or mold buildup
When you notice mold or mildew growing in your abode you may be dealing with a leak. Sometimes homeowners first notice this problem because of a mildewy odor or you may see a water spot, such as on the ceiling. Because mold spores can lead to respiratory health problems, it’s essential to take care of mold and mildew as soon as they occur.
Pipes have rust
When galvanized steel pipes or drains have been in use for a while, they will inevitably suffer from corrosion and rust. When you have rusty pipes, you’re more likely to have water leaks. The first indication of rust can be some mild staining or discoloration. You may see more advanced problems, such as flaking or more obvious rust development.
Water line stains
A water patch that dries up and then returns repeatedly is a sign of a chronic leak. Often, our customers call to complain about a white area (such as a wall or ceiling) becoming yellow following this leaking and drying cycle. Of course, when you see signs of a recurring leak, you must also check for signs of mold and mildew, and address the issue with the help of ARS/Rescue Rooter, which is among the top water leak repair companies.
Wet spots from water leakage are a common issue with homeowners. You may see these wet spots on the floor, ceiling, or along the walls. Leaks that come from the ceiling tend to occur more frequently than other spots and may be caused by the main water line springing a leak. You can spot leaks from pipes outside your home when you see a lot of grass growing in a specific location compared to the rest of the lawn.
Water utility bills are unusually high
If you notice that your bill amounts are growing bigger while your family is using about the same amount each month, this can be an indication of a water leak. Do not ignore such a sign because small leaks can grow larger and more problematic, potentially leading to significant damage to your property. What’s more, wasting water will make your bills only grow higher and higher.
Why You Should Hire the ARS/Rescue Rooter Pros Instead of Taking the DIY Approach
It certainly is admirable when homeowners want to take care of problems with their house on their own. However, it can be a mistake to try the do-it-yourself approach.
Here are the chief reasons why it’s best to hire ARS/Rescue Rooter experts instead of attempting DIY repairs:
A certified professional knows what to look for when dealing with potential water leaks. An amateur homeowner may miss a crucial sign, causing even more water damage.
Our plumbers have the right tools for the job. We carry all the necessary equipment in our service vehicles, while homeowners typically find themselves having to head out to the hardware store midway through a job, causing costly delays.
Hiring a trained plumbing expert with years of experience, such as one of the pros from ARS/Rescue Rooter, helps ensure that the job will be done right the first time, on time.
ARS/Rescue Rooter Offers Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Water Leaks
Here are our experts’ answers to the most frequently asked questions for you to review before contacting us for service:
Can we ignore a small water leak if it doesn’t seem to be causing any damage?
In our experience, it’s never prudent to put off leak detection and water leak fixes, even if they seem like minor problems. Remember, water leaks can quickly grow larger and more severe, leading to a much more expensive repair job down the line if not addressed immediately.
What is the typical cost for water leak detection services?
The answer to this FAQ will vary from one home to the next. It depends on factors such as how big or severe the leak is, how extensive the damage is, and where the leak occurs. As one of the leading water leak detection companies, we will be happy to give you an estimate for this service.
What are the main signs my home has a water leak?
There are many different indications of water leaks, including:
Water utility bill is much higher than usual
Water pressure is low for no apparent reason
Wet spots on the wall or floor
The toilet constantly runs
A sink is always dripping
Your family hears running water
You smell odors of mildew or mold
Rust appears in your home’s water
Why is it often so hard to find water leaks?
Many factors go into water leak detection. Sometimes, homeowners may only grow suspicious about a leak because of skyrocketing water utility bills or you think you hear the sound of water leaking, but still cannot identify the source. Water may start leaking from a pipe and infiltrating the walls or floors for many months before you detect any signs. You can rest assured that the well-trained plumbers from ARS/Rescue Rooter have years of experience detecting leaks using state-of-the-art equipment.
What causes water leaks?
Sometimes the problem is very old pipes that have become covered with corrosion or rust. Fluctuations in temperature can also lead to leaks, making pipes expand and contract during cold and hot weather, with this movement eventually leading to cracks in the pipes. In some cases, the installation was done poorly, to the point that leaks start to occur years after the homeowner moved in.
What information do I need to tell the plumber?
Ideally, you will be able to tell us the location of your home’s shutoff valve and let us know where to access the pipes and valves. It will also be helpful to tell us the size of the pipe involved and what kind of pipes are delivering water to your home. It’s okay if you don’t have all of the answers. Our water leak repair service experts will be able to get this information when we arrive for the service call to check out your home’s leaky pipes.
