Hidden water damage

6/28/2022 (Permalink)

Water leaks can cause a lot of damage to your home if not repaired in a timely manner however you can't always see it.  SERVPRO of Novi/Commerce South and Bloomfield has listed several ways to find hidden leaks in your home below.

  • Water meter test- Turn off all the faucets in your home and check the water meter.  If the meter is still running, you have a water leak
  • Water pressure test- Turn off all the faucets and measure the water pressure.  Low pressure can indicate a water leak
  • Listen for running water- Water leaks can sometimes be heard through walls or floors
  • Check your appliance for leaks- Be sure to disconnect them from the outlet before checking
  • Check toilets for leaks- Drop a little food coloring into the tank overnight and check your toilet in the morning to see if there is color in the bowl
  • Check your utility bills- Sudden or increases in usage can help determine a water leak is present
