6 Signs of a Water Leak That Every Woodstock Homeowner Should Be Aware Of

Homeowners in Woodstock, GA, and the rest of the country contribute to around one trillion gallons of wasted water every year, according to the EPA. Many of the contributors generally don’t know what’s going on in their homes.

If you’re in this category, you should know that you’re losing money secretly. You’re also exposing your home to damage. Do you want to stop being a part of the statistic? Read on. Woodstock's trusted leak detection experts cover the hidden and not-so-hidden signs of a water leak in this post.

1. High Water Bills

Your water bill should change a bit in the summer months when you have to regularly water your lawn or fill the pool. However, if your water habits don’t change that much and you suddenly start to receive higher than usual bills, it’s one of the biggest signs of a water leak. 

The change in your bill can be gradual, rising a little every month if you have a small leak somewhere. For larger leaks, you may be hit with a sizably larger bill.

2. Visible Presence of Mold

Can you see mold across your walls, ceilings, or floors? That’s one of the signs of water damage. It may not be a plumbing leak, but it’s definitely enough to launch an investigation. Mold and mildew love damp environments. If they are thriving in your home, you have a plumbing, roof, or basement leak.

3. Musty Smells Indoors

When your eyes can't pick out a problem, your nose can. That musty smell you perceive when you enter a room is a sign of mold and mildew growth, which may be due to a leaky pipe. Even when the mold hasn’t set in, water pooling behind walls or underneath flooring can exude a bad odor that’s hard to miss.

4. Streak Marks Across Walls, Floors, and Ceilings

Any kind of streak marks across your walls or ceilings should trigger alarm bells. It’s almost always a sign that there’s something wrong somewhere.

If the leak is small, the stains will appear small and barely noticeable. However, if you don’t fix the leak, the stain will become more noticeable until you end up with a sagging ceiling, weak walls, or extra creaky flooring.

5. Ghost Water Usage

Do you find your water meter running even with all the faucets shut off in the home? It’s highly likely that you have a pipe leak somewhere.

If your water meter is running when no one is using water anywhere in the home, you should call a plumber quickly.

6. Wet Spots Around Your Home

Can you see a pool of water close to your walls, inside your home, or on the lawn without recent rainfall? These are all signs of a water leak.
