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.
