Even a New Home Can Have Leaks. Here are Two Signs Yours Might

new home leaks

There is something special about owning your very own home; that is, until you find out you need plumbing services to take care of a leaky faucet, toilet, water pipe or septic tank. Thankfully, you can save a lot of time and money by catching problems early on. Here are two warning signs revealing your new home may have one or more leaks.

Sign #1: Plumbing Issues with Low Water Pressure

There are many reasons you may have low water pressure. Problems with the water shut-off valve on the water heater or a clogged faucet can lower pressure in many instances. However, if you have low water pressure throughout your home, chances are you have a leak on your hands and it’s time to get the professionals on the scene as quickly as possible.

Sign #2: Mildew and Mold

Mildew and mold will wreak havoc on your home. They can ruin the floor, walls, roof or even the home’s foundation. What’s more, many people and pets are allergic to mildew and mold. Common mold allergy symptoms include sneezing, congestion, difficulty breathing and scaly skin.

Mildew and mold need humidity to grow. One great source of water for these harmful fungi is water leaking into the home. If you’re running a dehumidifier even when it’s not humid but you still have mildew and mold problems, call in a plumber for expert leak detection services.

“We had an outstanding experience with Dependable Service Plumbing & Air in our remodeling of our master bathroom. In addition to their exceptional work, they were very concientious in their clean-up to include the cleaning of our hardwood floors while on their hands and knees. They arrived when we were told to expect them. They made it a point to ask us if their work was completed the way we wanted. We greatly appreciated their professionalism.” –-Theresa G.
