No matter how small your water leak is, they don’t fix themselves. Even a small leak waste water, causes damage, and gives mold the opportunity to grow. But do I need a leak detection service? I can probably find the source by myself.
Unfortunately, not all water leaks are out in the open. In fact, most of them happen behind the scenes, between walls, under concrete slab foundations, and under the ground.
How is the source of this type of water leak located?
Sure, you can start breaking into walls or floors trying to find the leak, which is very time consuming and destructive. Just imagine a dozen of holes in your walls and you still haven’t found the leak!!! Or you can call a leak detection specialist, who will pinpoint the exact location of the leak without any destruction!
