Tracking Leaks in Your Home

If you suspect you may have pipes that are leaking in your home, don't hesitate, try to locate the problem right away. You can begin by starting to look for water damage.

Water damage often shows up as brown stains in your ceiling or walls. If your house has vinyl flooring or wallpaper, look out for areas where it has begun to peel or bubble. It may even be possible to see mold growing.

If you have an idea of where the leak is, run your hands along the wall looking for cold spots in the wall, or for flaking paint. This method can be unreliable as the cause of cold spots can simply be cold water lines.

The sound of dripping water is annoying, especially when you can't find the source. If you hear dripping water, and you’ve made sure that all your faucets are off, you may have a hidden leak and it's time to call for help. In Washington DC, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.
