Common Causes of Water Leaks

Imagine sitting in your living room or playing a game on a mobile device and all of a sudden you notice a stain on your ceiling or wall. This means you have a serious problem such as a water leak. Water leaks cause tremendous damage that is expensive to fix if you don't catch it in time. 

There can be many reasons as to why water unexpectedly drips from the ceiling or comes through your baseboards. They can happen either in the kitchen, bathroom or even a basement, either way, there are many causes of water leaks that are ultimately very destructive. Here are some common causes of water leaks to consider: 

Broken seals 

When your appliances were installed it was the contractor who put the seals around all of your water connectors. However, over a period of time or even years, your appliances tend to break or wear down. It's more than likely you have a broken seal that needs replacement when you see poodles. GreenPro Cleaning can assist you with these issues. 

Clogged lines 

A clogged drain can always be an inconvenience. However, when you experience a clogged drain they have a tendency to burst pipes or simply overflow. Best thing to do is keep your gutters and HVAC systems clean to avoid any clogs down the road. 


Plumbing systems collect rust and can have corrosion that eats away at your pipes. You probably will notice discoloration and warping around your pipes indicating there's damage.
