Hidden water leaks can cause expensive damage to your home by facilitating mold growth and causing drywall and wooden flooring to rot. In order to protect your home from water damage, you should check your water bill for any sudden spikes, and periodically inspect pipes, fixtures, and appliances.
The most important areas to check are the supply lines to appliances such as your washing machine, water heater, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. Also, inspect the walls and ceilings in areas directly under bathrooms for discolorations, stains and other signs of water damage.
