As energy bills are soaring, the last thing you need is a water leak. Water leaks can dramatically affect your bill and the integrity of your home. However, water leaks are a lot of common than you might think. Indeed, every year, US households waste almost 900 billion gallons of water only to leak only. According to recent surveys, up to 77% of Americans report experiencing the consequences of a water leak, even if they can’t identify where the leak occurred.
Experts estimate that up to 50% of home owners experience 2.2 water damage insurance claims due to leaks. Yet, it doesn’t vanish into thin air. On the contrary, at Zona Restoration, we are familiar with water leak repair services. When spotted early, a water leak can be managed and stopped without causing significant damage to your property. Here’s what you can do against water leaks.
How do I know if I have a water leak?
A leaky tap may not affect your water bill dramatically. But it is annoying. You notice the sound of the tap dripping into the sink. And you might even spot limescale or rust signs on the tap.
Yet, not all water leaks happen at tap level. In fact, more often than not, a leak can occur under the roof, inside the wall, in the basement, or even hidden inside your plumbing system. As a result, they are not easy to spot until the damage is done.
What are the signs of a water leak?
- Dampness, such as damp masonry around the area of the leak
- Water stains on the wall or ceiling
- Wet drywall
- Discolored drywall
- Puddles on areas where the water drips from the wall or ceiling
- Musty and mildew smell
- Mold growth
What are the risks of water leaks?
If you can rapidly identify the location of the leak, you can get it under control. Pipe and tap leaks fall under the expertise of plumbers.
