Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

June 04, 2016

A plumbing repair is always a pain and could end up being costly, but it’s important to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired immediately. Some homeowners in Toronto might think, “Oh, it’s just a minor water spot, it’s nothing.” But actually water damage you can see is normally just the tip of the iceberg.

Wall Damage

The lines for your plumbing system live behind your walls so any leaks, or more severe, a complete pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or ruin it completely. If you see any water damage or suspect a leak, call Service Experts Commercial HVAC as soon as possible to analyze the situation and we can perform your plumbing repair to avoid any more damage.

Fixture Damage

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

Flooring Damage

Same as the walls, a plumbing issue can also cause destruction to your floors. Gravity drives water to run downhill which can cause leaks under your floors. Contorted and discolored floorboards and loose tiles are indications that you may be in need of plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better chance you have of not having to repair all the flooring, so call Service Experts Commercial HVAC as soon as you see any indications 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 might 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 professional to remove mold and sections of your wall or floors. Mold can produce serious health issues so don’t put off dealing with a moisture issue.

Cost of Wasting Water

On top of the harm leaks can cause in your home, it may also end up increasing your water bill. Leaks are just what they sound like – leaking water – so they raise your water usage and may earn you a large bill. If your water bill is costing more than usual, go ahead and call your Toronto Service Experts Commercial HVAC in case you are in need of a plumbing repair.

Don’t ignore leaks hoping they will vanish; they don’t resolve themselves. Even something that seems like a little plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not repaired right away. Call Service Experts Commercial HVAC today for emergency plumbing repair or annual plumbing maintenance.
