If you have a leaking pipe, you might not know about it for days, weeks, or even months. A hidden leak can wreak havoc on your house before you even know it’s there. Here are three signs you can look out for that could indicate a pipe leak.

#1: Your Water Bill is Going Up

If you notice an increase in your water bill, but your usage has stayed relatively consistent, it could indicate a leak.

#2: You Notice Mold and Mildew

If you start to notice mold and mildew where it wasn’t before, you could have extra moisture in that area of your house. If it’s near any sort of plumbing pipes, it could mean you have a leak.

#3: That Musty Odor

Too much moisture can lead to that musty smell. It usually comes from standing water, which you shouldn’t find in your house. If you smell must, it could be from water sitting in an area of your house from a leak.

#4: You See Water Damage

Water damage is a telltale sign that you have water someplace water shouldn’t be. Whether it’s on flooring, a wall, or a ceiling, any sign of water damage means you have a leak somewhere.
