A green square is shown with SERVPRO orange logo and the words “Check for small leaks under your sinks” If you suspect a leak or water damage call SERVPRO of The Lower Shore, Mid-Upper Shore and Talbot / Dorchester (410) 749-2221

Often times our team is called to a home or business where a small leak is now a larger problem. Homeowners have told us many times that they regret ignoring a small leak. In some cases, they thought they may have heard something, but didn’t investigate. Hoping it goes away is never a good approach to plumbing problems. 

Monitor your water bills, if you receive one that’s unusually high, and you haven’t been using excess water, a leak is a possibility.  

If you suspect a leak, check the cabinets under the kitchen, laundry, and bathroom sinks to make sure they’re dry. Look for water around the bases of tubs, toilets, and showers and beneath the water heater, dishwasher, and laundry.  

There are other signs of leaks and water damage. Bubbling paint or bulging wallpaper wall discoloration. This could indicate water leaking from behind the drywall and soaking through to the front side. Musty odors and dripping sounds can also indicate a leak.
