We at Service Master Restoration by the Griffin Company know that a leak in your home can look small. However, it could end up causing a sizable amount of water damage that can be very costly as well as a great deal of inconvenience for you and your family. First thing is to determine where the leak in coming from, whether it be from inside or outside your home. To do this, there are several tips that you should follow to help you to identify the location of the leak source.
- The first tip to follow to determine water damage is whether the leak is inside your home or coming from outside is to turn off all the water inside your home. All homes should have a water valve that can turn off all water into the home. If not just go throughout your home and check every faucet to make sure they are completely turned off. And check every toilet to make sure it is not running. . If you turn the water off and the leak stops shortly thereafter it is a good indication that the leak is coming from inside your home. However, if the leak continues to flow, there is a good chance the source is from the outside.
- Another tip that could help you to determine whether the possible water damage leak is coming from inside or outside is to consider the location of the leak. If the leak is coming from a ceiling in a room of your house that happens to be below a bathroom or kitchen, it could be an indication that the leak is from an interior pipe or a crack in a fixture.
- Another tip that could help you to figure out how to whether the leak is coming from inside or outside is the affect that weather has on the leak. If the leak seems to be the most active during and after a rain event, there is a good chance that the leak is coming from your roof or some outer wall that is not sealed properly.
