Leaks- they’re one of those things that seem minor, but if we let them go on long enough, they can waste gallons of water and cause severe damage throughout your home. This is particularly true for leaks that exist beneath the slab of your home or even behind your walls, since they’re often not easily detectable. Water and waste can be harmful, not only to your property but also to your health. Mold and bacteria grow in damp, dark, cold environments which can often be where your integral plumbing pipes are located.
Luckily for us, there are some serious red flags that can alert any homeowner to a problematic leak occurring somewhere in their plumbing. When it comes to plumbing problems, the earlier they’re found, the better. So, let’s take a look.
