A water leak can be a Brooklyn homeowner’s worst nightmare. The idea of returning home to a flooded basement or bathroom can unfortunately become a reality for any Brooklyn resident.

Even small leaks can be problematic and cause major damage that results in wall, floor or even furniture replacement. This is why it’s so important to catch leaks before they cause catastrophic damage.

Signs You May Have a Water Leak

But don’t worry! The Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating are here to help you. Our professionals are experts in leak detection and repairs, no matter how big or small the problem is. Below are a few signs that indicate you may have a water leak.

  • Standing water: Have you ever gone to your basement and found random puddles of water? Or maybe you noticed a small puddle in front of the washing machine. If this has happened to you, there is a chance that you have a water leak.
  • Higher than normal utility bill: Monitoring your water bill closely will also help with early leak detection. If your water bill increases without an increase in usage, there is a chance of a water leak could be the problem. Even a small leak around the faucet can increase your water bill by a noticeable margin.
  • Increased moisture: An increase in moisture in and around appliances or sinks could be an indication there is a water leak as well. If left unattended, these areas could begin creating mold and mildew, which would be hazardous for the whole household while also creating a bad smell. Also, any dampness where pipes may run can be a sign of a water leak.
