Water Bill Skyrocketing in Lakeview?
Do you have a hidden water leak in your Lakeview home?
Water damage can be one of the costliest repairs when hidden water leaks go undetected. Water is invasive and will seep into any porous surface, and if left untreated, it can damage and weaken the structural supports. But what if you have a hidden water leak? SERVPRO® of Gold Coast /Lincoln Park /Lakeview offers these tips from the United States Environmental Protection Agency on how to find out if your home has hidden water leaks.
- Take a look at your water usage during a colder month, such as January or February. If a family of four exceeds 12,000 gallons per month, there are serious leaks.
- Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.
- Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak. (Be sure to flush immediately after the experiment to avoid staining the tank.)
