Signs Of Water Leaks in the Bathroom
Although water leaks that require immediate leak repair can wreak havoc in your bathroom, it can be hard to tell whether or not there’s a problem. If you’re not sure whether or not you should call us at South End Plumbing for leak repair, there are several signs you should watch out for.
- Mildew and Mold- Even if you clean your bathroom to perfection every week, mold and mildew can still develop if there’s a water leak. While it’s normal for a little bit of mold to develop where water accumulates, like up in the corner of your shower, mold gathering on non-shower walls or in corners of your bathroom are both signs that indicate a leak could exist.
- Damaged Paint- Overtime, steam from your shower can cause the paint or the wallpaper on your bathroom walls to peel or fade. However, if you wake up one day and there’s a sudden change in the way your bathroom paint or wallpaper looks, there’s a good chance you could have a leak in this room.
- Smell- When a pipe in your bathroom starts to leak, the water that builds up over time will start to smell. If there’s a musty stench in your bathroom that just won’t go away, there may be a leak somewhere in the vicinity.
Failure to get a bathroom leak taken care of as soon as possible could result in expensive and extensive damage. If you notice any of these signs, contact us right away for leak repair.
