Why repairing a water leak is important:
- Flooring – water has to go somewhere and often it’s the floor, unchecked leaks can cause water to be trapped under floorboards, tiles, slabs, and more. Left to run free, leaks can cause foundations to crack, and for mold or mildew to grow.
- Walls – Since most of your home’s plumbing is behind the walls, water from a broken pipe or a leak, can seep through the drywall. Water leaks behind walls can cause damage to the structure weakening walls, or causing them to collapse. These leaks can also create a mold problem which often requires costly remediation.
- Mold & Mildew – Mold and mildew thrive in damp dark places. A leak can promote this growth jeopardizing the health of your whole family.
