6 Signs of a Water Leak

Water leaks are as frustrating as they are damaging, often because of how difficult they are to detect and how they can go unnoticed for long periods of time.  A water leak can technically happen inside, or underground anywhere between the city hookup and where the water enters your home.  The key to minimizing damage to both your home and your pocket, is early detection.  Here are 6 signs to be aware of when identifying a leak:

Unusually High Water Bill

There’s uncharacteristically high, then there’s “holy moly, there’s no way I used that much water”.  If your water bills are on the rise, you might have a water leak.

Wet Spots on Ceiling, Floor or Walls

Water leaks can make themselves known in the way of water marks.  If your ceiling, wall or floor surfaces are wet, warping, sagging or stained call a professional to take a look.

Musty Odors

Water that accumulates over a long period of time can leave your home smelling a bit funky.  Unfortunately, musty odors are often due to mold and mildew that can spread rather fast under ideal conditions.  It’s best to get these situations under control as soon as possible.

Sound of Water Flowing

If you hear water running, but have no reasonable explanation as to why…check your faucets, spigots, toilet valves, etc.  If everything is appears normal, take an hourly reading of your water meter. If the meter reading goes up and you didn’t use any water, there’s a problem lurking.

Low Water Pressure

While it doesn’t always signify a leak, low water pressure can be cause for concern. First identify whether the water pressure is low all the time or just intermittently.  Then check various faucets, showers and spigots to see if all of them are effected or just ones in a certain area of the home.  Collect your findings and have a discussion with a local plumber.

Cracks in Walls

While it may seem as though cracks and moisture have nothing to do with one another, they often do.  If you have an underground leak, causing the ground to shift and your home to settle in unexpected ways, that settling could cause cracks in your foundation and drywall.  No matter how small the crack is, it could signify big problems for you and your home.

7 Steps to Take if You Have a Water Leak

You’ve identified that you have a water leak, what’s next?
1
Turn off the Water

Locate your water meter and turn off the water to prevent any additional damage.

2
Identify the Source of Leak

Sometimes it is very apparent and other times not. The more you can investigate, the more efficient a plumber will be when they arrive.

3
Call a Licensed Plumber

Not all plumbers are created equal and water leaks are nothing to mess with. Get a licensed professional in to assess the problem and damage.

4
Document Damage

Before the cleanup begins, document the damage for insurance purposes.

5
Call Your Insurance Company

Make your insurance company aware of the damage as early in the process as possible so that they can help you through the process.

6
Fix the Leak

Once the problem is identified, the plumber will recommend a course of action. It’s best to proceed quickly but cautiously to ensure proper resolution.

7
Hire Reinforcements

Water damage can lead to mold, mildew, damaged drywall and flooring. Contact the proper professionals to make certain the clean-up is as thorough as possible, leaving behind no health hazards or unsightly reminders.

Joe, is one of the best servicemen that Jackson Comfort has. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly & courteous, listens to me, explains the details of what he is checking, and always does a thorough job. Today he did the annual check on my A/C system. I have full confidence that my unit is in top shape for the next year.

Wow great job overall. Very professional with a great system for contacting you with when the technician is arriving. Brian was fantastic quick and went over everything before he did it. Punctual, thorough and job was done perfectly. AC unit which I neglected was running like a new system and not pricey at all.

It was a pleasure having Matt service our equipment. He was on time and explained everything he did. He took care to protect our hardwood floors while he worked. Jackson Comfort has been taking care of our unit for over 15 years. Thank you to everyone at Jackson and especially Matt for such great service.

Been using Jackson for 10 years. Always on time, friendly and not pushy. They use modern technology to confirm appointments and send reminders (email and text). I also like that I received a color image of the service tech via text when he was en route to our home. That way I know it is actually him.
