Even just a minor water leak can cause your home to incur serious water damage. If you’re worried about hidden leaks in your bathroom, kitchen, or anywhere else in your home damaging your property, there are a few things you can do to keep major damage from occurring.
Watch Out for the Signs of a Leak
One of the best ways to keep water damage from occurring is to watch out for some of the common signs of water leaks. Your home may have a water leak if:
- You can hear water running through your pipes, even when your faucets are turned off
- You can smell a musty or moldy odor in certain areas of your home
- Your flooring or walls are discolored or warped in certain spots
Additionally, there might be a water leak somewhere in your home if the paint or wallpaper on your walls has started to peel.
Get Water Leaks Fixed as Soon as Possible
If you notice any of these signs, it’s essential that you get the water leak taken care of as soon as possible. Otherwise, your home may continue to incur water damage, and mold may start to grow in the affected area.
