Dangers of an Undetected Water Leak
The degree of danger that exists from an undetected water leak depends on how long the leak has gone undetected. Things may seem just fine on the surface, but if a water line has split or even has a small leak and no one can see it, serious damage may result. If this type of leak occurs under a vanity, behind a wall or under a floor, it may result in mold growth, rotting wood, ruined carpets and drywall, and a long, expensive cleanup. Undetected water pipe leaks also lead to elevated water bills, which is another reason it’s important to catch them as soon as possible.
Reasons to Call Right Away
Along with higher water bills, you may notice excess moisture or condensation in the area around the leaking pipe; you might see small patches of mold, smell a musty odor or feel dampness on walls, floors or ceilings. This poses a health threat to anyone with allergies or respiratory issues, as well as damage to your home. If the leak is in a pipe that’s outside the house, you might notice the excess moisture on the ground when you walk on it. Don’t hesitate to call Gene Johnson Plumbing & Heating when you suspect a water line leak in your home or property!
