Water leaks are the worst! They seem like a mystery at first. You might notice a damp odour coming from your bathroom, damp water marks in the tiles of your shower floor or swelling cabinetry in the laundry. It’s one of those things that makes just enough of an impact to be noticeable but not enough of an impact to demand immediate attention. Once carpet starts to feel damp underfoot, however, then it becomes a more pressing situation.
8 tell-tale signs of a water leak
- Mouldy silicone
- The odour of damp or mildew
- Damp water marks in tiles
- Deteriorating paint or wallpaper
- Swelling or bubbling cabinetry or plaster
- Missing grout in tiled surfaces
- Damp carpet
- Stained downstairs ceiling (under the room where the leak is)
Why you should get your water leak fixed fast
Quite often, people turn a blind eye to a water leak because it doesn’t bother them too much at first. They also think that fixing the issue could involve a lot of inconvenience, expense and mess. In fact, most people think it’s going to be a huge catastrophe.
The problem with not dealing with water leaks sooner rather than later is the longer they’re left untreated, the worse – and more expensive – the damage could become to fix.
“Imagine how complicated it’s going to be!” they cry. “All those tiles are going to have to come off just so the shower leak can be fixed! That means we’ll have to buy new tiles and if we can’t match the exact same ones that are there now, we’re going to have to re-tile the whole bathroom!!”
Well that definitely sounds like a big deal! But what if we told you that the tiles don’t have to be removed at all?
