A Small Leak Can Mean Big Problems

12.17.2011

In the plumbing world a small leak is a serious problem. Unfortunately, many homeowners do not feel the same way.
They are under the impression that a small problem like this will take care of itself; this is not usually the case.
How can such a small leak turn into such a big problem? Well, here are three ways:

1. Over time a small leak will eat away at the floor, walls, and pretty much anything else it comes in contact with.
This will not happen overnight, but over the course of several months standing water which is constantly added to will cause damage. This is even more so the case if you cannot see the leak and clean it up from time to time.

2. Mold is a major problem, and the main culprit is moisture.
A small leak can lead to mold and related issues in no time at all. Mold is a health hazard for those living in the house. To go along with this, it will also make your home nearly impossible to sell if the time ever comes.
Nobody wants to buy a home that has been affected by mold. It is expensive to repair, and if left alone, harmful to your health.

3. A leaking pipe can lead to poor performance.
This may not be a huge problem, but when you turn the water on it will feel like something is a bit “off.” This may be the least of your concerns, but one that should tip you off that something is going on.
Don’t let anybody tell you that a small leak is no big deal.
Instead, hire a professional plumber to come to your home, identify the problem, and implement the proper solution. This will cost you some money, but will put your mind at ease sooner rather than later.
