Common Signs of Water Leaks

One common clue that water is leaking is that your home's water bill has suddenly spiked, even though your family's routine has remained the same. If your water bill surprisingly jumps by $20 or more, then there's reason to suspect a plumbing issue. In some cases, a spike in water expenses will be accompanied by other symptoms of a leak. If you can hear water running when all faucets/spigots/showerheads are off, then it'll be best to have a plumber come by to conduct an inspection.

Damp floors are another sign of a water leak. The dampness could also lead to a musty stench permeating your home. Oftentimes, a musty odor is noticeable shortly before mold/mildew growth becomes visible. Because it's normal for a bathroom to be somewhat damp, it's not necessarily a sign of a leak if mildew is growing in there. But mold/mildew in other rooms is cause for concern that a leak has spurred its growth. And if there's a leak within a wall of your home, you might not only notice mold/mildew, but also water stains on the wall.
