Spotting Burst Pipe Water Damage in Detroit & Troy

Water damage at your home or office is the most obvious sign of a burst water pipe at your property, and you should contact the Maher professionals immediately. But other signs also exist, including: 

  • Abnormal water pressure: Inconsistent pressure (too high or low) suggests a pipe about to burst. 
  • Smelly water: If the water emits an odor, you could have a plumbing problem. 
  • Discolored water: Water should be clear. Contamination from a broken pipe will give it different shades of color like brown, green, or yellow.
  • Mold growth: If there is mold growing at your property, an inside-wall or other hidden broken pipe could be the cause.
  • Spikes in water bill: A sudden increase in the water bill can suggest a broken section in your plumbing.
  • Wall watermarks: Most pipes run behind walls and dampen their surroundings if a leak is present. Watermarks on walls could indicate leaking pipes.
