Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Detecting a leak in your residential property is crucial for preventing potential water damage and saving on utility costs. Signs of a leak can manifest in various ways, often starting with seemingly innocuous clues that escalate over time. One common indicator is an inexplicable increase in your water bill (high water bill?). If you notice a significant spike in your monthly water expenses without a corresponding increase in usage, it could signal an underlying leak issue. Additionally, keep an eye out for visible water stains on walls, ceilings, or floors, as well as unexplained dampness or pooling water in areas where it shouldn’t be. Another telltale sign is the presence of mold or mildew growth, particularly in areas prone to moisture accumulation such as bathrooms or basements. Any of these signs should prompt you to seek professional leak detection services promptly to mitigate potential damage and address the issue before it worsens.

One of the primary concerns homeowners have when considering leak detection services is the potential for property damage during the detection process. At Innovative Leak Detection, we prioritize minimizing disruption and damage to your property through the use of non-invasive methods whenever possible.
