Signs of a Leaky Pipe

Plumbing Repair Calabasas, CAUnfortunately, we at Dutton Plumbing know better than anyone that a leaky pipe can spring out of nowhere. However, if you’re not 100% certain that you have a leak, the following common signs will help you to understand if you need to call out a professional.

Are You Experiencing Mold or Mildew?

From time to time, you may find a little mold or mildew in shower or bath corners or other areas in which moisture builds up. However, if you begin to notice an abundance of mold or mildew around your pipes or drains, chances are, you have a leak somewhere. Another telltale sign of a leak is the strong smell of mold which can be coming from underneath worktops or flooring.

Damaged Wallpaper or Paint

Steam from your bath, shower or sink certainly shouldn’t be causing your wallpaper or paint to be bubbling, cracking or blistering. If this starts to happen, it’s probably because there’s water within your walls or behind the paper or paint. This is a very obvious sign of a leak and should be seen to urgently before the structure of your home becomes affected.

In addition, if you notice a stained or sagging ceiling, there may be a leak from upstairs (if there is an upstairs area) or there could be a hole in the roof causing outside water to come in. This type of leak can have a detrimental effect on your home, so it’s best to get it resolved as soon as possible.
