Why you need to call the Certified Plumbers at the Leak Doctor if you suspect a water leak
The Leak Will Only Get Worse Over Time
Water leaks don’t get better on their own, they just get worse! Letting the water keep leaking is the absolute worst thing you can do. Not only does it add pressure to the pipes, the damage will continue to get worse, which will end up costing you more in repairs.
Damages Will Continue To Grow
The damage multiplies quickly, the longer a water leak is left on its own. The problem is, you don’t know where the source of the leak is located. Either you received a higher than normal water bill, smell a musty odor, hear water running when all the appliances and sinks are turned off, or noticed water damage, but not sure where it is coming from.
That’s when you need to contact a professional with the right tools to locate the leak without needlessly breaking into walls or floors. Behind the walls of your home lies the perfect conditions for mold to grow. Before long, the drywall starts to rot, the cabinet needs replacing, and it can even lead to structural damage.
Living with mold can cause various health conditions such as, headaches, coughing, runny nose, sore or itchy throat, fatigue, memory loss, trouble concentrating, sinus problems, and difficulty breathing.
The High Cost of Water
You may think a few drops of water isn’t going to cost much, but they add up quickly. Wasting hundreds, if not thousands of gallons of water each year. It only takes 4 drops of water every minute to waste 130 gallons a year.
