Sometimes people like or feel the need to hide. Life, at the moment, is too demanding and you just want a little time to yourself. So, if that were you, where would you be most likely to sneak away to? Your tool shed? Local convenience store? Take a walk around the block? Chances are you have at least several good options up your sleeve – options you prefer keeping to yourself, just in case.
Well, water has a habit of hiding, too. To be specific, leaking water. It has some very clever “out of the way” places, too. Like above a ceiling. Inside a kitchen cabinet. Behind a refrigerator. And it doesn’t stop there.
But unlike you hitting the pavement for a half hour or so, once a water leak starts, there’s a good chance it won’t stop until the leak is discovered and repaired. That, in turn, makes it imperative you know at least a few ways to detect a leak, and the sooner the better.
- Black mold on an interior wall, door, or ceiling
- One or more wet spots on your lawn when the rest of the lawn is dry
- A water bill so high, it practically makes you gasp, but you can’t account for the overage
- Musty odors you can’t identify the source of
Or let’s say you reach way back into a kitchen cabinet for the first time in quite a while and the can you’re searching for is wet. So are the objects around it. Not a good sign. And then the day comes you decide to clean behind the refrigerator and, once it’s away from the wall, you see a puddle or signs that one or more were there.
