One of the services that we offer here in Bloomington, IL is water leak detection. It is also one of our most sought after services. While we can certainly pinpoint the source of a water leak in your home in order to effectively repair it with minimal disruption to your property, though, it is up to you to give us a call in the first place. That means that you must be able to at least recognize the potential for a water leak in your home.
We’ve put together a few helpful tips to help you do just that. If you notice any of these situations in your home, we strongly recommend giving us a call right away. Remember that many a homeowner has leaned the hard way that “minor” leaks can lead to major damage if given the time.
The Mysterious Sound of Running Water
Halloween may be right around the corner, but don’t chalk up the sound of running without a source in your home to the supernatural. Instead, check to make sure that no faucets have accidentally been left open, and that your washing machine is not completing a cycle. If you cannot find the source of running water anywhere, it is very possible that you are actually hearing the sound of a leak in your plumbing system.
The Case of the Sagging Ceiling
Have you noticed staining on any of the ceilings in your home? Is there a section of your ceiling that seems to be sagging downward? If so, then you really need to get on the phone and schedule leak detection services with our team. This is a sign that a water leak has already begun to damage your property. It’s best to nip it the situation in the bud.
The Water Bill Creeping Higher
And now for something truly terrifying: a shockingly high water bill! You probably have a general idea of how much you are spending on water between billing cycles. Obviously, there is going to be some fluctuation in these numbers. If, however, you are really taken aback by an inexplicable spike in your water costs, it could be due to water going to waste somewhere in your system.
Pipeworks Inc. is here to spare you a scary situation with plumbing leaks in your home.
