Unpleasant Smells in Certain Areas of your Daytona Beach Home can Indicate a Slow Leak or Water Problem

Where does that smell come from?

When parts of a home become odorous, they can often be showing symptoms of a deeper issue. Homeowners that suspect water damage in their Daytona Beach property can benefit from enlisting professional help early on to prevent permanent harm. Homes have numerous irrigation systems, plumbing systems, and electrical systems within the walls. A fault with one of these systems may not be immediately noticeable in your day to day life. However, over time they can lead to significant damage from rotting, water logging, mold growth, and warping.

What are the signs that I have a leak or loose pipe in your plumbing system?

    •    A spike in your water bill is a tell-tale sign that there is a leak or malfunction in your plumbing system
    •    Unpleasant odors emanating from areas of the home which return persistently, even after cleaning
    •    Discoloration or cracking in the paintwork on the ceilings or walls
    •    Low water pressure from your faucets or into your boiler
    •    Unusual noises when running water in the house

What happens if I leave a slow leak without getting a repair?

Slow leaks get progressively worse as time passes. In some situations, leaving a slow leak can result in permanent damages, which cost far more to replace or repair. Rusting, for example, can initiate from a slow leak but, over time, spread throughout the plumbing system, causing significant damage. There may also be issues with water hygiene when using taps from a plumbing system with leaking pipes. Finally, microbes inside water can proliferate in walls and require expensive remediation.
