Water damage can be a costly and frustrating problem for your home. When we think about water damage, we often imagine flooding. The thought of seeing your basement submerged in a foot of water is awful! However, not all water damage is the result of such a dramatic scene. Small, slow leaks can cause damage to your home that is just as costly. Unfortunately, sometimes these leaks are hard to identify.
So, how can you avoid water damage from leaks? There are some precautions you can take to protect against leaks. First, you can waterproof your basement, foundation, or other areas in your home that may be susceptible to leaks from the outside. There are also signs you can look for to detect a water leak that you may not be able to see in your home.
First, you should be aware of your water bill. If you see your bill suddenly increase, but your water usage remains the same, this may signal that you have a hidden leak. At this point, you will want to pay attention to other signs that may identify a leak. These signs may include:
