Four Signs that Indicate You Need Our Plumbing Services to Take Care of a Hidden LeakPosted by February 12th, 2015
If left untreated, a water leak in your building can lead to extensive and expensive damage. However, sometimes the signs of a water leak aren’t visible or even noticeable. Here are four signs that indicate you need to call us for plumbing services to take care of a leak that is lurking within your building’s structure.
- Mould- No matter how well your property is maintained, the development of mould is always a possibility, especially when a leak exists. If you notice that mould has started to grow in certain areas on your property, this may indicate that our plumbing services are needed to mitigate a leak.
- Damaged Paint- A wall with blistering paint is another sign that indicates a leak may exist. When water and moisture accumulate behind your walls due to a leak, they eliminate the bond between your wall and the paint on it.
- Damaged Walls- A wall that is stained or warped for no identifiable reason is a clear sign that your building is suffering from a water leak. When drywall is exposed to moisture, it starts to soften and bubble, leading to warped and damaged areas.
- Damaged Flooring- Unless water sits on the surface of your floors for an extended period of time, your floors will rarely suffer water damage. However, if you have a leak, your floors may start to buckle, crack, or stain without an identifiable cause.
If you notice mould or water-damaged paint, walls, or flooring, give us a call right away for plumbing services. If a leak is present, we will get to work quickly to prevent the amount of damage incurred to your property.
