How a True Plumber Can Help You Identify and Fix the Hidden Leaks in Your Plumbing.
Water damage is one of the worst things that can happen to your property. What may have started as a minor problem (a small leak) can lead to serious property damage. Although most construction materials in a home are pretty resistant to water damage, a leak left untreated can ruin even the most durable material. So, the first thing you should do when you notice any sign of water damage in your home is to call a professional plumber.
Leaks that go undetected can provide a water source for rodents, invite ants and termites, or cause wood rot and mold. If undetected for a long time, you can find yourself replacing insulation, drywall, and sub-floors. There have been cases when leaks have severely damaged home foundations, causing cracks to develop in the home’s walls. It is pretty clear that plumbing leaks must be stopped immediately, otherwise the consequences can be devastating.
The problem is that plumbing leaks are pretty hard to detect. This is mostly because most of your plumbing system is buried in your floors, ceiling, or between your walls. When the signs of a plumbing leak become visible, it means that the leak already caused property damage. However, there are a few warning signs of water leak that you should keep an eye on.
A crack in your main water pipe can cause serious expense in the form of high water bills. Since most main water pipes are buried deep under ground, you may not notice the leak for months. That is why we advise you to keep an eye on your water bills. If you notice any unusual spikes, then you may have a plumbing leak. Hire a professional plumber as soon as possible.
