Leaks that lead to water damage are beyond frustrating when you see them occurring, but most of the time through fast action, you can stop the issue quickly before any permanent damage takes hold. But what about when leaks are secretly wreaking havoc on internal areas of your home? Hidden leaks often go on for days or even weeks without homeowners noticing, so it is important to know some of the most important ways to spot hidden leaks around your Tulsa home.
The most obvious sign that you have an internal leak somewhere behind the walls is a water spot. These large, discolored spots are wet to the touch and may be textured. Once the source of the water has been found and the damage mitigated, you can likely expect to replace the panel of drywall. Even if it has been dried and determined to be mold-free, it will not look the same, so it’s best to replace.
Have you ever left a load of laundry in the washing machine for an extended period of time? When you open the machine, your clothes do not smell nearly as fresh as they did when the cycle initially ended. This is because being trapped in a dark, moist environment allowed the onset formation of mildew. With mold and mildew, you have a pungent, musty odor, which almost always signifies growth and a moisture source. Should you notice that smell anywhere in your home, look around closely for any accompanying spots or pooling. This could mean there is a hidden leak nearby.
If you think a slow drip from your faucet in the bathroom upstairs will not make any significant difference in your water payments, think again. A leak of any kind will add up the longer it is allowed to go on, and any professional will tell you that the first place to look is your water bill. If there are major inconsistencies based on the amount of people in your home or the water demands, you could have a hidden leak somewhere. Even a slow-moving leak will cost you money, and that doesn’t include the cost of remediating the water damage or removing the potential mold infestation.
The minute you notice any of these signs and think there may be a leak somewhere, turn off your water supply right away and call Restoration 1 of Tulsa. Any time of day or night, we are available to come to your home and resolve any damage that has resulted from your hidden leak. Contact ustoday at (918) 844-4900.
What a great experience dealing with leak from shower to bedroom floor! Adam & his crew did an excellent job explaining where the leak was coming from, and what needed to be done. Was surprised to hear of molds in the walls (which explained the sinus infections & allergies to the point I take allergy shots weekly), and was kept informed of treatments and job status on restoring both rooms. Adam was very cleared with specific work order that needed to be accomplished and contacts with insurance. Highly recommend Adam & his crew/company for their professionalism.
When we first found out we had mold under our house, how bad it was and how much it was going to cost we were devastated. Adam Lambert talked to us, explained everything he was going to do and how thorough he would do it, it really eased our minds. They did such a good job. Showed us before and after pics and explained what products they used, blocked off areas they working in and cleaned up very thoroughly. This was a first for us (mold removal) but if ever we need the service we would definitely recommend Restoration 1 of Tulsa and Adam Lambert. Very professional. Larry Coker…
Chris and Adam of Restoration 1 of Tulsa came out to my home immediately after I found mold in several of my rooms in my home. They were there at the exact time they said they would be, were very professional, and explained everything to me in a clear and concise way. They even sent me an amazing report for my records when they were done. Finding mold is a terrifying experience and it was nice to know I had the Restoration 1 team looking out for me. I called a few other companies and they were extremely unprofessional and gave me insanely high quotes. I would recommend Restoration 1 of Tulsa to anyone and everyone. Thanks again you guys!
