Advantages of Water Leak Detection Services
Water leak detection services can prevent damage to the sub-flooring in a home. Even a small leak that goes on for a long period of time can result in your floor rotting and it will have to be replaced. Don't waste money on new flooring. Instead, spot the leak and get it fixed before you end up with costly replacements.
This service can also save you money by preventing other damages and reducing energy costs. Detection helps identify potential water intrusion which can lead to unwanted repairs. Undetected leaks can cause an increase in energy costs. By simply turning off the water for a half hour or so, one can detect whether or not a leak is present by taking a meter reading. This could point to noticeable spikes in energy bills.
A leak can create the perfect atmosphere for mold to accumulate. Musty smells near sewer lines may indicate a mold presence and can be addressed with water leak detection. Leaks can also lead to unsanitary water conditions. Leaks can introduce bacteria, germs, and foreign bodies that could lead to illness. Leak detection eliminates the various safety hazards.
Should You Consider Professional Drain Cleaning?
Professional drain cleaning is needed periodically. If drains become too clogged, pipes can become damaged and even burst from the pressure. Repeated clogs also indicate it's time to consider a professional cleaning.
Slow drainage is another sign to look for when determining whether or not it’s time to look into professional drain cleaning. Multiple clogged drains in the home can point to a much deeper drainage problem. Frequent basement flooding also signals that there could be a sewage backup that could eventually lead to water damage.
