Leaks can cause a lot of damage to your home and can encourage mold growth. One of the best things that you can do to prevent leaks is to recognize the common signs of one. If you notice any of these signs, be sure to contact a professional plumber as soon as you can for a repair.

Broken Seals

Your contractors put seals on all your new appliances when they are installed. However, the seals tend to become loose as the appliance ages. If you notice puddles around your sink, dishwasher, or other plumbing fixtures, then there is likely a leak.

Clogged Drain Lines

In many cases, a clogged drain line only causes a minor inconvenience if it is clogged. However, a clog can cause a pipe to burst. Clogged gutters and obstructions in the drain pans can also create a leak. Therefore, you need to keep your HVAC system and gutters clean.

Corrosion

Your pipes can develop rust as they get older. If you notice that any of your pipes are discolored or warped, then you will need to have a plumber assess the damage. You may need to get your pipes replaced.

Excess Water Pressure

While we all desire to have good water pressure, water pressure too high can put a strain on your pipes. The pipes are designed to withstand a certain amount of pressure. If you are concerned about the water pressure being too high, then you will need to have a professional check it.

Rapid Water Temperature Changes

Extreme temperature fluctuations can put a strain on your pipes and cause them to leak. You should pay attention to how your pipes contract and expand.
