Whether you are residential or business, calling a plumber is essential when you first notice a damp spot or discoloration on the wall. This indicates a water pipe leak. Since wall leaks appear without warning, there is not a lot you can do to prevent them happening.
What Causes Wall Leaks?
A number of things can cause wall leaks. It might be a cracked pipe, a broken joint, a worn out pipe or various other things. This makes it important to call a professional rather than considering a DIY project, especially if home insurance is involved. When the job is done, you will have had a technician with the skills and materials required to do the job correctly and efficiently.
A leaking wall pipe can cause a number of problems in addition to damaging your walls. Since water flows downhill, this can cause floor damage as well as mold, peeling paint, water-stained walls, and a musty smell. If there is an advanced stage of mold, luckily Cali’s Choice Plumbing & Restoration also provides mold removal.
How Do I Know If I Have a Leak in my Wall??
There are various signs that you’ll notice when there’s a leak including:
- Mildew or mold growing in the area of the leak.
- A sour, musty smell that hangs in the air.
- Peeling paint or wallpaper that bubbles.
- Loose tiles and/or dog-eared vinyl flooring next to the tub.
- Flaking wood finish located near the shower.
- Recurring standing water after taking a shower.
Can This Type of Leak Be Prevented?
A wall leak can be prevented but may take some time to address. Mostly this becomes an issue in an older residence as the pipes and fixtures are aged and have more corrosion. The source of a leak in the wall will usually provide one or more visible signs of its presence. The most best way to prevent this type of leak is to repair all holes and cracks you find in the home with compatible filling materials and cover the surface with a waterproofing compound. Most leaks within a wall go undetected for months or years and frequently occur in the basement. Waterproofing is an effective solution to prevent this issue.
