Being a property manager often involves resolving a variety of issues as soon as possible before they get out of hand. A common maintenance issue that you may face is a leaking shower. Left alone, the leaking shower can not only cause trouble for your tenants but also lead to further water damage and exponential repair costs. That’s why it’s essential to contact a professional who can provide a leak repair solution as soon as you or a tenant suspect that there is damage.
Signs of a Leaking Shower
There are numerous warning signs when it comes to discovering a leaking shower. However, while it is often easy to identify the existence a shower leak, the source of this damage can be quite difficult to pinpoint. In many cases, the leak will come from behind a wall, which will also require the use of a professional leak detection service to accurately determine the problem. Here are just some of the ways that you can tell if your tenant’s property has a water leak:
- Peeling, flaking or bubbling paint
- Cracked or loose tiles
- Water stains on the ceiling or floors
- Mould and damp growth
- Grout discolouration
