Signs You Might Have A Water Leak In Your Bathroom
There are many sources in your home that can create water damages or be the source of a leak. Here are a few signs in your bathroom that could be the root cause of some of them.
Take a look at your water bill from around the same time in previous months or previous years -- has it gone up or even changed just enough for you to take notice? That could be because of a leak. Keep an eye on it for next month and if you are still seeing the same jump, have a professional take a look. It can never hurt to have another pair of eyes on your water meter. Water bills can run deep and especially if it is winter season and the bill is climbing.
This is the main issue that we see when bathrooms are the culprit of a water damage. Water stains almost always are a symptom of a more serious issue going on in your home. Once you notice, check the adjoining sides of the walls to see if there are water spots showing up in other rooms. These kinds of water damages can spread quickly and cause a lot of damage in their wake. Always call someone when you notice water stains so that they can be stopped and cleaned up quickly before they spread.
When there are loose tiles in your bathtub, that may be signs of more serious water damages. Take a few tiles out and see what is behind the wall.
