Are the Pipes in My Home Leaking?

If so, you need to have the leaks repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent serious water damage to your home. Doing so can also prevent serious monetary consequences due to wasted water. Of course, before you can have leaking pipes in your home repaired, you must first come to recognize that there is a leak to begin with.

We offer water leak detection services in Spring, TX that can accurately pinpoint the source of a leak so that you don’t have to. However, you must at least to be able to recognize that there is a leak somewhere, so that you can alert us to the problem in the first place.

Look. Listen. Smell.

When it comes to spotting potential leaks in the pipes composing your plumbing system, you need all of your senses to be on high alert. That way, you can pick up on the warning signs that there is water flowing without your wishes. Even minor leaks can be discovered if you know what you’re looking (or listening, or sniffing) for.

Musty odors can indicate that there is a leak somewhere in your home, even if you cannot see the signs of water or water damage directly. If you smell a musty odor, but are certain that you haven’t left damp clothing laying around, contact us right away. It’s not a leap in logic to guess that mold growth may be the next step, and that is a problem that you really don’t want to deal with.

If you do see mold in your home, it could be the result of leaking pipes. Mold and other biological pollutants thrive in damp conditions. If you see mold or water stains, or even pooling water, anywhere in your home, dial our number right away.

Also, remember to keep your ears open. White noise may help you to drift off to sleep, but your house should not sound like a babbling brook. If you can hear the sound of running water in your home when you are sure that there is none in use, leaks are very likely.
