A customer called us thinking that he had a leak of some kind because he had higher water bills than normal. A gradual leak can be one of the worst, because it can do a great deal of damage to the structure of your home. For example, a leak behind a wall can result in a plumber needing to tear that wall out to repair the problem pipe.
If you have a shower leak that has ruined drywall, it could be a long time before you’ll be able to use that shower again. The pipe has to be fixed and then the area needs to be thoroughly dried before the wall can be reconstructed. Any sort of floor leak can ruin carpeting and force you into having hardwood or laminate floors replaced.
These are just some of the reasons why you need to be alert to the signs of a hidden leak so that you can take action to fix it as soon as possible. Here are some of the most common indications of a leak.
• Your wallpaper or paint starts to peel.
• You see even a slight amount of discoloration on your ceiling.
• You notice a musty smell or see mold.
Call Radiant immediately at (512) 772-5082 if you spot the signs of a leak.
