Water Damage from Slow Leaks

Water leaks in your home or business place are a common sign of water damage and may be caused by a variety of causes, including heavy rain, appliance malfunction, clogged pipes, gutters, drains, etc. If you notice slow leaks inside your home, chances are that it is present for a long time before they came to your attention. Such leaks can lead to structural water damage as well as encourage mold growth if it is present for too long.

Dealing With Water Leaks

While dealing with water leaks, you need to take care of the water damage and the origin of the leak. Fixing the reason behind the leak is necessary to ensure the leaking problem does not boomerang back. After fixing the origin, the surrounding water damage can be dealt with. We advise having a professional take a look at the water damage to ensure excess moisture is eliminated so that you do not face mold damage in the future.

Some common scenarios of slow water leaks:

  • Roof leak
  • Attic leak
  • Ceiling leak
  • Basement leak
  • Leaky faucet
  • Leaky sink
  • Leaky water pipes

Can Slow Leaks Damage My Property?

Slow leaks are often found after a long time the water has been leaking. During this time, the water may have caused some significant damage. These damages include:

  • Discoloration - the surrounding areas near the leak may appear to be discolored or show brown stains.
  • Flaking & bubbling - water damaged walls may start to flake, or bubble and destroy the paint coating; the same goes for wallpapers
  • Structural damage - affected areas of your property may face structural rot, and damage, resulting in the need for replacement
  • Electrical short-circuits - if somehow the leaking water comes in contact with electrical wiring or components, there is a chance of a fire breakout
  • Mold growth - water damaged areas will contain lots of moisture; making them the perfect breeding ground for mold
