Some water leaks you just can’t miss. If a wet, soppy ceiling suddenly splatters to the floor, or a huge puddle grows in an unexpected place in your house, it’s crystal clear you’ve got a water leak. But not all water leaks lead to imminent disaster and some are slow, sneaky, and not obvious at all.
Check out these unexpected signs that there may be a water leak in your home.
Loose, Warped, or Buckled Flooring
Although this symptom may be found anywhere in the home or basement, it’s most commonly seen around showers. Loose floor tiles or curling linoleum in the area can be an indication that water is leaking from the shower pan, slowly warping the underlying floorboards. Just check the seal on your shower door first to make sure the problem isn’t due to water seeping out during use and left to stand.
