I Found A Wet Spot In our Fort Myers Home, Now What?
Was it the dog? Did your kids or husband spill something on the carpet, and didn’t tell you? Why is there this wet spot in your Ft. Myers home? It could be a leak from a nearby bathroom, a slab leak, and if it’s close to a wall, possibly even a roof leak. The first step is to relax. We at Leak Locators can respond quicker than the other guys and will be priced right, to get you squared away- ASAP. If and when you happen to find a wet spot, it’s a good idea to get the water to your home or apartment turned OFF. If you’re in a Single-Family home, you can find the water shut off (main) valve at the side of your residence. This will usually look like a lever, in the vertical position of the water pipe is connected to. Turn it in the horizontal position. Test at a nearby hose bib for a few seconds until the water stops running out (usually a few seconds). In an apartment, you’re A/C closet should house your water heater also. Above the water heater, the same (lever) type valve should be turned so that it isn’t in line with the water pipe. This signifies that water to your apartment will be “OFF”. Test this at a nearby bathroom sink, running water until it stops, then turning off. This is generally recommended to avoid further damages and water loss. The last very important step- call us. We can arrive usually the same day, and sort out your situation.
