I finally discovered why my bathroom wall is bleeding


If only this wall could talk — and tell the owner why it’s oozing “blood.”

A California TikToker was shocked and repulsed to discover that her bathroom wall was leaking a blood-like substance like something out of a horror movie. A video detailing her plasma-seeping powder room boasts nearly 7 million views on TikTok with gawkers wondering if her house is haunted.

“I filmed the video to get someone’s opinion on what it was, and what to do, because I didn’t understand what it was,” Lexy Chidester, 30, told NeedToKnow.Online of her hemorrhagic house.

The TikTok clip, captioned “dude wtf my walls are bleeding,” shows the college counselor’s bathroom wall, which is trickling blood into the sink in a scene straight out of “The Shining.”

The phenomenon evoked memories of the beginning of the blood-deluge scene from “The Shining.”

“I’ve lived in this house for 20 years, and, suddenly last night, my cabinet starts to bleed,” describes Chidester in the video, which she reposted to Instagram. The seepage was particularly perplexing as it didn’t come from the inside of the cabinet, per the clip.

“This is straight out of a horror movie,” exclaims the aghast homeowner, who wondered if her house was “possessed.”

Chidester says she initially didn’t think much of her “bloody” walls. That was until she returned the next day to discover that the “blood pool” on her bathroom vanity’s countertop had doubled in size, evocative of a “True Crime” murder scene, as seen in this shocking clip with 2.9 million views.

“I laughably thought, ‘That’s not normal,’ ” said the Californian, adding that she reached out to an expert for help. “I spoke with a plumber who talked me through what I was looking for in the pipe system — if it was a leak.”

Heeding their advice, Chidester said she “climbed into the attic and looked for similar colored goo or wet areas” — a painstaking process she detailed in an Instagram video with 6.2 million views.

When this lead turned out to be a red herring, the blood-seepage sleuth in the video tested the red substance for mold, but the results were negative.

Despite coming up empty, the dogged Nancy Drew was determined to find the source of the blood trail. “There was a discussion of cutting into the wall, but that was the absolute last resort!” Chidester told NeedToKnow.Online. “I am not a handy person to know how to fix leaks, cut into walls, and check house wiring.”

The source of the seepage is revealed.

“It was explained to be that when condensation mixed with years of rust and no ventilation –my bathroom doesn’t have a fan – can cause rust in cold metal to liquefy; something I did not know before all this!” said a relieved Chidester.

She even implored TikTok to help her find out “why my wall is bleeding,” generating a smorgasbord of interesting theories and jokes.

“It only happens once a month,” quipped one TikTok wit, while another jokester wrote, “It got its mirriod.”

“I’ve seen this before actually, all you have to do is throw away the whole house,” snarked one comment-section comedian.

Another joked, “Give it a couple years and a push up bra and it will blossom into a beautiful full length mirror.”

“There weren’t pipes in that wall, the wood wasn’t ‘bleeding’ that same liquid, there was no trace of it in the wood frame, the attic was dry, the cabinet was the only place that made sense," said Chidester, describing her eureka moment.

Thankfully, after myriad fruitless investigations — one of which involved ripping out the cabinet — Chidester finally discovered the source of the seepage.

“After talking with my family, and ruling out everything it couldn’t be using deductive reasoning, the only place really unexplored more closely was the cabinet itself,” the amateur detective explained. “It was the only thing that made sense.”

Chidester explained in a follow-up clip that when they went to put the cabinet back in the wall, she noticed that “there were pieces of metal” that were overlapped with more of the “coagulated blood” in the corner.

In order to get to the bottom of the bloodpool, her brother and her used pliers to peel back the metal. That’s when they discovered that the substance was seeping from “the inside of the metal,” per the video.

Chidester found out later via her social media followers that the so-called blood was actually liquefied “rust.”

“It was explained to be that when condensation mixed with years of rust and no ventilation — my bathroom doesn’t have a fan — can cause rust in cold metal to liquefy; something I did not know before all this!” she later confirmed to NeedToKnow.Online. “The wall has been left with light pink staining but is otherwise fine.”
