Most plumbing pipes are located behind walls, which means you won’t see a small water leak as it slowly drips. Getting the drywall wet and causing mold to grow. They just get worse with time, which is why it is so important to contact the Leak Doctor as soon as you think you may have a water leak….no matter how small. 

Damage From Mold

It just takes 24 hours for mold spores to grow, especially in the heat in Central Florida. With mold comes health issues, runny nose, cough, itchy eyes and throat, watery eyes, dry skin, headaches, and fatigue. Prolong exposure to mold can present an especially hazardous health risk. 

Damage To The Fixtures 

While you may not have thought about it, that water leak can also damage your drains, pipes, and ruin your shower heads and faucets. Gaskets deteriorate faster and water pressure can decrease. 

Damage To The Flooring

Water will eventually flow down and reach the floor. Leading to loose tile, discolored floorboards, and of course mold. 

Damage To Your Wallet

Leaks waste more water than you think. Which ends up costing you more in your utility bill. If your water bill is higher than normal, don’t ignore it!

Contact The Leak Doctor

Hoping the issue will resolve itself, you can end up with a bigger problem. One that will really do some damage to your wallet in repair costs.
