A dripping noise, anywhere in your house, can be worrying. Not only is it annoying to keep hearing when you’re trying to sleep at night, but it’s a potential sign something is wrong with the structure of your house. There could be a problem in the plumbing or electrical system you’re living with, and that’s something you’ll want to sort out as soon as you’re able to!
Where's That Dripping Sound Coming From?
So don’t ignore any errant dripping noises, and don’t let yourself think it’s just in your head. Go and check the house out, and start with these three places!
If you’re ever walking past one of your walls in the kitchen or living room, and you hear a drip at the moment it drops, pause for a second and continue to listen. If it continues in a fast manner, with only a few seconds between each drop, be sure to go and turn your water off at its source.
If you no longer hear the dripping, there’s a good chance something is wrong with the plumbing on the level that you’re experiencing the noise. You might need to relieve the pressure in the system, simply to stop the drip being pushed out so far, or you might need to call out a plumber to rip a hole out and see what’s really going on!
The dripping sound you’re currently hearing might be serious, it might be nothing. It might be the pipes, it might not. Either way, checking things over won’t hurt, will it?
