Water leaks can be some of the most damaging things that happen in your home. And while some leaks you’ll be able to see, like faucet leaks, others may be hidden behind walls, under floors, or in your backyard. These you might not notice until there are water stains or holes in your drywall, soft wet spots on your floor, or sharp increases in your water bill!
The most common—and most overlooked—dangers of water leaks are mold and mildew! Both mold and mildew can lead to health problems, including respiratory issues, as well as increased allergies. Keep your home healthy and happy by addressing hidden water leaks as soon as possible.

How to Check for Hidden Water Leaks
Checking for hidden water leaks is simple—if you know what to look for. Start by stopping all water use in the home. Next, locate your water meter and record the number for reference later on. Do not use any water in your home over the next three hours! After the three hours are up, check the water meter again and see if any water use was recorded. If so, you have found a hidden water leak and it’s time to call a professional to handle the dirty work.
