Plumbing leaks can be very frustrating and most of the plumbing in your Orlando home is concealed in walls or in the attic. Plumbing leaks or wall leaks can cause massive damage and the worse part of it is hidden so you don’t know your home is damaged until it has caused massive amounts of damage. Some insurance companies won’t cover the damage if there is mold present so it is very important to catch the leak sooner than later.The following list are some things to look out for to help identify a wall leak quickly in order to cut down on damage:
Check your water bill and make sure there are not any unusual higher uses of water consumption.
Keep your sense of smell in tune for strong earthy smells this can indicate wall leaks that are present and causing mold.
Check for moist spots in walls or floors. This is the last step because usually when you see wetness the leak has been present for some time but if you are aware of your home surroundings you will see this wetness in the beginning and catch the leak before mold starts growing.
