Four Important Reasons Not to Ignore Water Leaks
Often the first sign of a leak is a larger than usual water bill. An undetected and untreated leak can quickly produce hundreds of dollars in water bills and costly water damage repairs and renovations.
Damage to home foundations, floors, ceilings and exterior building structures may require time consuming repairs and renovations. During this time, families may need to vacate their property for safety reasons.
Leaks from roofs can affect interior and exterior building structures. Plumbing leaks can increase pressure throughout the system. Even a small leak can result in more leaks from high pressure in other areas.
One of the most devastating consequences of water leaks is the growth of toxic mold and fungus in your living areas.
Mold is often concealed behind walls, appliances, and flooring. Numerous health risks are associated with exposure to mold.
