4 Signs You Have A Hidden Water Leak

automatic-shut-off-valveIf you’ve got a leaking pipe in your home that’s undetectable to the naked eye, you’ve got a big problem on your hands. Other plumbing issues make themselves known quickly. It’s very hard to not recognize a clogged toilet or a leaking faucet. The pipes tucked away in your home (in your basement, under your sink, in the walls) are less noticeable.

A problem can occur in these pipes and go unnoticed for a significant amount of time. If you’re not attentive to your plumbing system, you’ll waste money. It’s hard to detect these problems on your own, so if you need a water leak detection services in Boston, MA, our team at Cooling Unlimited, Inc can help.

Signs to Look For

Excess Foundation Cracks

If you live in a home that’s older, it’s common to see a few cracks in your foundation as your house settles. It’s abnormal if you have an excess number of cracks and no foreseeable cause for them. When water leaks undetected it causes the structural foundation of your home to weaken leading to cracks from the unbalanced pressure.

Increased Water Bills

When you get your monthly water bill, you know what to expect. If you’ve used reasonable amounts of water in the last few months but have excessively high bills, you might have a hidden leak. The longer you let the leak go undetected, the longer it senselessly raises your water bill.

Water Damage

When a leak is unabridged, water starts to pool in unlikely places. If you experience stains on your floor, ceiling, or walls (especially during a time where we don’t have any rainfall or snow) it’s often a sign of water damage. This is also true for any warped walls, doors, bubbling surfaces, or buckled floors.

The Presence of Mold or Mildew

If you notice mold and mildew in the crevices of your home, especially in unlikely places, you might have a water leak on your hands. Water leaks raise the humidity levels in your home and create an environment where mold flourishes.
