While some problems, such as a burst pipe, are easy to detect, others are more challenging. A small leak under the floor or behind a wall may leak for a long time before you notice the problem. In the meantime, it can be silently causing mold to thrive. You can find leaks quickly when you know the signs of a hidden plumbing leak.
You may have a plumbing leak when you notice:
- Musty odors
- Discoloration on the walls or ceiling
- A bulge in the ceiling or wall
- Wet spots
- Rising water bills

Whether caused by a leak in a water heater tank, a burst pipe, or a smaller, more hidden plumbing leak, water damage can have serious consequences for your home and your family’s health. It doesn’t have to be a flood to cause damage to your property. Even after you have fixed the leak and cleaned up the water, there can be lasting consequences.
A leak can result in:
- Mildew growth
- Water damage to flooring, furnishings, and heirlooms
- Damage to drywall and other materials
- Structural damage
Water damage can negatively affect your property value, the safety of your home, and the health of your family. When water damage from a leak causes mold growth, it can cause allergy symptoms and additional risk for people with severe allergies, asthma, or respiratory conditions. You could be facing expensive mold remediation to get the mold out of your home, so don’t wait to deal with a plumbing leak.
