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. But other signs also exist, including: 

  • Abnormal Water Pressure: Inconsistent pressure -- too high or too 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, chances are good that a broken pipe is leaking & causing the mold growth.
  • Spikes in Water Bill: A sudden increase in the water bill can suggest a broken section in your plumbing pipes. 
  • Wall watermarks: Most pipes run behind walls and dampen their surroundings if a leak is present. Watermarks on walls could indicate leaking pipes.
