How to Detect Slow Leaks, and What Should You Do?

Slow water leaks can hide behind walls, under floors, under sinks, in attics, closets, and many more places. These sources of water damage can create considerable difficulty without you noticing until it's late in the game. They can dampen your walls, slowly causing watermarks and stains in a short time. If ignored, slow leaks have the potential to grow into more serious issues, such as mold and mildew growth, which can pose health hazards. Serious water damage from a slow leak can lead to structural damage. At the first sign, it's best to take action and contact a professional immediately to prevent further damage and fully understand what damage is done.

Slow Leak Signs You Should Heed

When a slow leak has begun damaging your home or workplace, you will notice several signs, including:

Water cost spikes: If you notice a sharp increase in your water bills look for a leak in your household. If it is left unchecked, your home will consume more water to maintain its systems, which can result in waste and high expense.

Damp, musty odors: The first sign of water damage is a damp and musty odor. Look for a slow leak if there's a persistent smell of water damage that won't subside.

Wall damage: Water seeping through your walls will produce discoloration, warping, or bubbling paint. Often this indicates slow leak behind a wall or other concealed area.

Appliance malfunction: Unusual appliance breakdowns, like abnormal shower or water line pressure, inconsistent drips, strange gurgling sounds behind walls, or other unexpected signs can indicate a slow leak you can't readily see.
