Keep An Eye Out for Common Signs of Water Leaks

Knowing the signs of a water leak can help you address the issue right away, helping to prevent the leak from escalating or happening again. Here are a few things to look out for when it comes to water leaks:

  • Foul smells. Unpleasant, stale and musky smells are often a sign of standing water or mold growth. If you notice this smell in your home, investigate further or call a professional plumber to assess the area.
  • Sounds of water. From a leaking faucet to water running through the walls – even after all valves have been turned off – can be the first sign of a water leak problem.
  • High utility bills. Water bills don't tend to fluctuate much from month to month. If you notice a sudden spike in your water bill, there's a good chance a leak is the cause.
  • Wet spots. If water leaks go unnoticed for a period of time, you may find yourself stepping on a wet carpet or a surprise puddle on your hardwood floors. Wet spots are not to be taken lightly because they indicate that a significant water leak could be present.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes water leakage?

Some of the most common causes of water leaks in homes include clogs, broken seals, pipe corrosion and damage, excess water pressure, rapid temperature changes and extreme weather. Many leaks are preventable, while others may happen by accident or due to the age of your equipment and house.

How should I deal with leaking water?

First, make sure to identify the source of the leak. Sometimes, a drip may look like it's coming from one place, but in reality, it's due to a faucet or pipe in another room. Once you've found where the leak is coming from, turn off the water source. If the leak does not stop, try turning off your water heater and supply. Use a bucket and towels to soak up the leaking water and prevent further damage. Next, call your local plumbing professional to address the situation and fix the leak for good.

How can I tell where a water leak is coming from?

Since water tends to move quickly, finding the source of a water leak can be tricky. It's always a good idea to first check the common areas you use water, such as your faucets, toilets and washing machines. You'll also want to look around your house's exterior for any damage or puddles of water. If you're having trouble finding the source, you can always call a professional to come out and assess your home.

What are some ways to prevent water leaks?

Monitoring your water bill and water meter are great ways to keep an eye on any potential leaks. You can also have a home assessment done to determine the state of your appliances, fixtures and structure to see if there are any risks.
