Most Orlando home and business owners don’t perform regular maintenance on the plumbing pipes. Who blames them, there are so many great things to do here in Central Florida than working on the plumbing. But unfortunately, this leads to water leaks.
Water pipes spring leaks everyday without anyone ever noticing. Slowly damaging the walls, reducing air and water quality. Then the tell tale signs start to appear.
A larger than normal water bill
Unexplained mold or mildew
Cracked or loose tile
Warm areas in the flooring
Peeling wallpaper or blistering paint
The sound of water running when all the appliances are turned off
Low water pressure or a hissing sound can indicate some sort of water leak.
Warped or uneven floors and cracked tiles can be caused by humidity and shifting soil, both of which occur because of a slab leak.
Doors that stick or crooked, baseboards separating, and bowed or cracked walls, though they can be fixed, they indicate an underlying problem.
To make matters worse, today’s homes are built to be air tight. Which makes it very difficult for the homeowner to detect hidden water leaks. They also have more bathrooms, washing machine upstairs, and more pipes in the kitchen for appliances.
When it comes to the pipes in your home, skipping routine maintenance only ends up costing more in the long run. Water leaks that go undetected can cause significant damage, thousands of dollars in repairs, and even severe health issues.
Improved Quality of Air
Even a small water leak can cause mold in just a few days. Neglecting water pipes can result in poor quality of air in your home. Breathing toxic mold is problematic for everyone!
The fact is, regular plumbing maintenance can be very time consuming. Which is why an alarm system for your pipes can make all the difference!
