Here are the 3 of the most likely places for water damage to start in your home.
One of the biggest sources of water leaks in homes is from the toilet. One of the reasons is that it silently does it and if you’re not looking for it you won’t always see it. A way to check for this is to listen to your toilet when you flush and make sure everything is working properly. On top of that, putting a little food coloring in the tank and seeing if any ends up in the bowl without flushing is a sign that your toilet has a valve that is leaking and can cause future problems.
Hot Water Tanks
Being an area where a lot of water is held is a good bet that if you have a water leak it might come from that. Water tanks should be checked periodically to make sure everything is working properly and that there are no hissing noises or leaks forming.
Faucets and Showers
Other common areas where leaks can occur are faucets and showers while having a little leak isn’t the worst issue and could be because of improper installation or sealing fixing that before it becomes a bigger issue could be necessary. The more important area to focus on is the valves and pipes down below, making sure those are working properly and not leaking is crucial as those can cause more damage.
