Do I Have Hidden Water Damage in Lake Lorraine Home?

7/12/2022 (Permalink)

A water meter is shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Okaloosa County.

Our local team in Fort Walton Beach responds to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day, every day of the year in Lake Lorraine, and we typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call for help. Water damage often occurs due to a leak somewhere in your walls or ceiling and may not show visible signs until the damage is more extensive. Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for ways to find leaks in your home or business:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. After ten minutes, if any color shows up in the bowl, you have a leak. (Be sure to flush immediately after the experiment to avoid staining the tank.)
  • Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks
