That Mold Is Telling You Something | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Mold and mildew in your bathroom could be a sign of a plumbing leak. If you can’t find one, call the leak detection pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

While you were dressing this morning, you were thinking about going to the drumming circle at Fort Island Gulf Beach tonight. That is, you were thinking about that until you noticed some mold on the wall of your bathroom. 

You searched for a leak but could not find one and now you’re not sure what to do. Maybe the mold is a result of the rainy weather that has doused the Tampa Bay area recently and so means nothing.

Ignoring mold and mildew is not a good idea. According to Angie’s List, “No matter how well and how often you clean your bathroom, mold or mildew can spring up if you have a hidden water leak. Mold thrives on moist, dark areas, and a pipe, which is typically hidden in a wall or under flooring, provides the perfect starting point for mold or mildew if the pipe springs a leak.

“While it’s normal for a little mildew to occur wherever water accumulates, such as in the corner of a shower, mold or mildew on non-shower walls or in corners of the bathroom is a clear sign that water is leaking somewhere and finding its way to those areas. A leaking pipe provides plenty of moisture, so the longer it takes you to detect and fix the leak, the easier and faster mold will grow.”

If you spotted mold or mildew outside the shower and can’t find a leak, you need a leak detection expert to help.
