Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

June 04, 2016

A plumbing repair is never wanted and may end up being expensive, but it’s crucial to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired as soon as possible. Some homeowners in Canada might think, “Oh, it’s just a small water spot, it’s fine.” But actually water damage you can see is commonly just the tip of the iceberg.

Wall Damage

The tubes for your plumbing system are installed behind your walls so any leaks, or more serious, a complete pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or destroy it completely. If you see any wet spots or feel there’s a leak, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately to assess the situation and we can complete your plumbing repair to avoid any additional damage.

Fixture Damage

While you may regard plumbing issues as being just in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality problems may actually harm your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A decayed gasket could become lodged in the plumbing pipes or decrease your water pressure. If not taken care of quickly and correctly, you might end up needing to invest in a new fixture, which may cost between $150 and $550 or more.

Flooring Damage

Same as the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause damage to your floors. Gravity pulls water to flow downhill which can cause leaks under your floors. Distorted and discolored floorboards and loose tiles are signs that you may need a plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better possibility you have of not having to replace all the flooring, so call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as you see any signs of damage.

Mold Issues

Under particular circumstances, moisture in the walls and floors can result in mold growth, so if you see any marks that you could need plumbing repair, call immediately because you may need someone else besides a plumbing expert – you may also need the service of a mold remediation company to remove mold and sections of your wall or floors. Mold can induce significant health issues so don’t put off dealing with a moisture issue.

Cost of Wasting Water

Besides the destruction leaks can cause in your home, it can also end up increasing your water bill. Leaks are precisely what they sound like – leaking water – so they up your water usage and may earn you a large bill. If your water bill is more than usual, be sure to call your Canada Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in case you require a plumbing repair.

Don’t fail to address leaks hoping they will vanish; they don’t repair themselves. Even something that seems like a little plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not taken care of right away.
