Water In Your Walls Can Cause Major Structural Damage.

Water leaks happen in homes all of the time. The biggest problem is that they tend to go unnoticed until they have caused significant damage. The reason for this is because, water that begins to leak behind walls usually gets absorbed into the wall and will not become apparent until the wall or paint begin to blister or even bubble up. To detect a wall leak, you really just need to pay extra attention. A way to do this is to make sure you are always checking your water bill at the end of the month to see if there is a large rise in water usage. Another way to do this is to also check your water meter. You can turn off all of your water for several hours and write down the number the meter is at, then go back and check it after a few hours and see if the meter has risen while you were not using any water. If you think you are having a water leak in your wall but do not know the source, you will want to call a professional at Dimensional Drones and have them do water leak detection using an RWS device.
