If you’ve got water leaks in your Suffolk-area plumbing system, it’s vital to the health and structural integrity of your home or business to detect and repair them right away. Fortunately, Lanthorn Plumbing is a local industry expert with years of experience in accurately detecting and promptly repairing leaks in slabs, walls, and under the ground.
How to Recognize Leaks in Your Virginia Home or Business
There are some warning signs of leaky water or sewer pipes and drains that you can pay attention to, including:
Mold growth. Mold grows in damp places, so if you notice mold growing inside your home or office, you could have a leak. Left untreated, the leak will continue to promote the growth of the dangerous mold that could have negative consequences on your health and reduce the appeal and livability of your residential or commercial property.
Water stains. Water stains or warped walls, floors, or ceilings could also indicate leaking pipes. Not only are these stains and warping unattractive, they can be expensive and messy to repair and they can promote more growth of hazardous mold and bacteria.
Moisture. Stagnant water pooling on your floor, floors that feel spongy when stepped on, or damaged and discolored floors could be another sign of a water or sewage leak.
Odor. Musty or foul odors drifting from your fixtures could indicate leaks in your water pipes or sewer lines. If not repaired, the odors could greatly reduce your air quality, drive customers from your business, or keep you from your house.
Higher water bills. Higher water bills month after month could indicate that your pipelines are leaking and need to be repaired.
