Why You Need Leak Detection Plumbing Services
Leaks can occur anywhere in your plumbing system, including the pipes, faucets, and toilets. Several factors, including wear and tear, poor installation, and corrosion, can cause them. Regardless of the cause, leaks can lead to significant problems in your home, such as:
Leaks can cause water damage to your floors, walls, and ceiling, leading to mold growth, rotting wood, and paint damage. Water damage can also compromise the structural integrity of your home, leading to costly repairs.
High water bills
Leaks can cause water wastage, leading to high water bills. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), a leaky faucet can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water yearly.
Mold growth from water damage can cause health problems such as allergies, asthma, and respiratory infections. In extreme cases, mold exposure can lead to long-term health problems.
Water wastage resulting from leaks can harm the environment by depleting the water supply, contaminating water sources, and increasing carbon emissions from water treatment facilities.
