Water Damage SERVPRO Technicians are Experts at Finding Hidden Leaks Pipes leaking behind a ceiling can cause extensive damage and possibly mold. Call SERVPRO quickly to investigate.

A cause of wasted water in your home is a slow leak in your plumbing fixtures, pipes and appliances especially leaks behind walls. Since these leaks are usually silent, they are often undetected. However, SERVPRO can repair any of these types of water leaks. If untreated, hidden plumbing leaks can cause serious water damage to your home and the need for water removal. There are usually some small signs to help you find these kinds of leaks. Mold grows well in dark, moist areas that are usually hidden under flooring or behind walls. If a pipe starts leaking, mold can grow in the area. If you see mold in places where water is not usually found, like non-shower walls, you might have a pipe which is leaking. Other things to keep an eye out for include peeling wallpaper or paint on your walls, a wall which is stained or warped for no apparent reason, a musty smell, or a cracked, bubbled or water-stained ceiling or floor, especially in the bathroom.
