Leak Detection in Baltimore

Accurately Detecting Leaks for Efficient Repairs

Plumbing leaks can be extremely damaging to your walls, flooring, furniture, and even the foundation of your home. Not all leaks are easy to find, but you can rely on the professional plumbers and technicians at Albright's for precision leak detection in Baltimore. We are a local plumbing and service contractor serving the local area for more than 50 years, and our technicians have seen it all.

Signs of a Hidden Plumbing Leak

The last time anyone saw your full plumbing system is before the drywall and flooring were installed in your home. Plumbing pipes are located behind walls, under floors, ceilings, and even under the ground, so small leaks can go undetected until they grow into larger leaks. When leaks aren’t easily discovered, your home may be silently damaged by the water.

You may have a hidden plumbing leak if you have:

  • Low water pressure
  • Puddles of water on your floor or lawn
  • A musty odor indoors
  • Unexplained increases in your water bill
  • Water damage to your floors or furnishings
  • Mold or mildew growth

Call us at (410) 834-0148 for help locating any leak, or contact us online.
