  2. If you have mildew, mold, or excessive moisture forming under the carpets.
  3. If you see cracks in your walls or floors.
  4. If you hear running water, even though no fixtures are turned on.
  5. If you notice hot spots on your floors. A good indication of this is if you notice your pet lying in the same spot – they like the warmth.
