Possible Sources of Water Leakage In Your Home

If you have recently discovered a water leak in your bathroom, kitchen, or any other area of your home you may be wondering what your next move should be. If the leak seems to be a small one and the source of the leak is coming from underneath the kitchen sink, chances are it may be an easy fix that you can take care of yourself.  If, however, you are unsure where the leakage is coming from, water leak detection may be your best bet to solving your problem.

There are many ways that water can get into your home and cause damage to it in the process. Here are some common entry points for water:

  • Leaky roofing: The roof or your home is the first barrier to the elements that your home has. Over years of wear and tear damage to roof shingles and tiles can occur causing water leaks that can seep through attics and dry wall. 

  • Bathroom & Kitchen Plumbing Issues: Water leaks can occur because of bathroom and kitchen plumbing issues. Toilets can get backed up, kitchen sinks can get clogged over time causing water to leak or even causing pipes to burst if left unnoticed.

  • Appliances: Any appliance that utilizes water could be a possible cause of water leakage in your home.  Ensure you are checking in and around these appliances on a regular basis to prevent any water leakage issues before they start.

  • Piping Issues: Water leaks that originate from cracked or worse yet, broken pipes in your home are the most difficult to detect and often the costliest and time consuming to repair. You may not notice the damage until it is too late because to the naked eye it may seem that there is nothing going on. Water that is running between walls can cause structural as well as electrical issues for your home.

  • Clogged Gutters: If the gutters on your home are clogged and not draining properly instead of deflecting water from your home they could be directing water back in. Ensure your gutters are clean and free from leaves or any other types of debris. This ensure that rain and the run off from melting snow are not entering your home.

Determining the source of the leaking water is the first step to addressing the issue. Once a professional has identified the source, they will be able to recommend what the best solutions are to address the problem. If a water leak is caught early on, the damage shouldn’t be too severe or extensive. If, however, water has been leaking for months or years, you may have a costly home repair on your hands. The best defense against this is prevention. Ensure you are paying attention to all the areas in your home that may be prone to water leaks and any appliances that draw water for utilization. Check out these areas regularly and you should be able to prevent any damage before its too late.
