Plumbing leaks are easy to detect when they spring up in exposed pipes, like those under a sink. However, the majority of leaks occur in places out of sight, such as behind the drywall of your walls. These leaks are harder to detect, and the leaking water can do extensive damage to building material before you realize that the leak even exists.

Symptoms of a leak hidden the wall include:

  • Peeling wallpaper and wallpaper bulges
    • If you have wallpaper over your walls, you can sometimes catch signs of leaking when the wallpaper starts to show water damage. An early sign is peeling along the wallpaper. If the wallpaper starts to bulge, it could indicate water coming through the drywall.
  • Discoloration in the walls
    • As water builds up because of a leak, you may notice stains appearing on the walls, usually a yellow or off-white color. This usually indicates that that the damage from the leak has already gone far from the other side, so call for leak detection as soon as possible.
  • Mold or mildew
    • The increase in moisture from a leak will often trigger the growth of mold or mildew. 
  • Water bill increase
    • A spike in your water bill is often the best warning of a hidden leak.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact Mr. Leak Detective to pinpoint the location of your leak today.
