There are signs to look for when checking for leaks in walls. The first thing you need to observe is the presence of standing puddles of water near the wall. This is considered as the easiest and simplest check you can perform. Look for wet carpets or see if there’s always water buildup in a certain area of your house. Check the dishwasher, laundry machine, and other appliances that use water or those located near the toilet, sink, or toilet.
The second sign to look for is discoloration on your walls. This is a telling sign that there is a leak. Check your wallpapers and see if there’s discoloration or if there are surfaces on the wall that’s slightly washed out. You should also check the texture of the walls. Irregularities in texture can be signs of a leak.
Third, look for signs of mildew and unpleasant smells in the walls. These could be the result of water leaks that are not visible but have already gone for quite some time. Lastly, listen for faint dripping sounds which can be due to a leaking pipe.
