Commercial properties in our area need to be aware of the consequences that stem from water leaks.

5 Signs of a Water Leak
Let’s get started with some easy ways to determine if your commercial property is experiencing one or more water leaks. If you encounter any of these, be sure to call for one of our professional plumbers so these leaks can be dealt with.
- The sounds of a water leak. You might think that water leak expresses itself through “dripping” noises, but the truth is a leak can make other sounds. Sometimes it can express itself as the sound of running water when no taps are on. Or, perhaps you hear a slight “flush” when nothing is running. All of these are signs that your commercial plumbing system is leaking.
- Puddles, drops, and the sights of a water leak. If you notice a puddle or physical drops of liquid underneath a pipe, then you’re definitely dealing with a water leak.
- Foul odors and the proliferation of mold. When a leak is allowed to go on in a dark, warm area, it can quickly allow for mold to grow. Luckily, our senses can easily pick up on mold infestations, because they usually give off a foul odor. If you detect this scent then you should call for a pro.
- Lower water pressure in appliances. When water is leaking out of the system, it can reduce the water pressure in other appliances. This is especially true if it’s a large leak, or if there are a lot of appliances in your commercial establishment that rely on this one water supply. If you know what your water pressure should be, and your system is lacking, then be sure to get this problem addressed.
- Moist spots in otherwise dry materials. Drywall and wood should always have a dry feeling when they’re used in a building. The moment these materials become wet, they lose structural integrity, they become aesthetically unappealing, and they can even harbor mold infestations. This is usually caused by an unseen leak.
