Benefits Of An Annual Leak Detection Service Call
As homeowners, most of us tend to be reactive in dealing with plumbing problems. Once a leak is noticeable, though, it has often become a more serious problem. One of the best proactive approaches that can be taken with plumbing is to have an annual leak detection service call. This will ensure that your sinks, showers, toilets, dishwasher, and even pool and spa do not have any leaks. There are 3 overall reasons for having leak detection performed every year, and they are to save money, prevent property damage and protect your health.
First of all, let’s discuss the money saving reason. Any long-term homeowner knows plumbing work is expensive. Usually a plumber is needed when there is a major problem, and the labor involved can run up quite a significant bill. It is obvious that fixing a minor problem is going to cost you a lot less than fixing a major problem. Unfortunately, many tiny leaks go undetected. They can then lead to major leaks that require emergency plumbing services.
The second reason to check for leaks annually is to avoid causing damage to a home or business. Leaks, especially ones that have been going on for a long time, can cause rotting within the home which is extremely expensive to fix. Even worse, they can bring about the growth of mold and mildew. Mold brings us to the third reason.
Mold remediation is something that must be done for health and safety reasons and is very expensive. Unfortunately, a very small leak could cause a lot of mold by the time it is detected. Small children, the elderly and people with respiratory conditions are the most negatively affected by these mold spores. Again, catching a small leak early could help prevent this issue.
Annual leak detection services can save a lot of money in the long run, detect small leaks thereby preventing potentially major leaks and keep you and your family healthy and safe. A small annual investment now can definitely help prevent a huge expense and significant property damage down the road.
