Plumbing leaks can go unnoticed for months in different areas of your beautiful Florida home. Meanwhile, the constant presence of water could inflict expensive damage and drive up your water bill.
Water leaks show up in various ways, and while you may not see any, it’s still a good idea to schedule a leak detection service this fall. With winter on the way, leak inspection and repairs will save you time, stress, and money.
Have Your Pipes Inspected Before Heavy Winter Use
Hidden or minor water leaks can appear to be nothing. The evidence might even dry up before you can see it. Over time, though, your water bill can rise because of the excess water flowing out of a leak. If the leak happens to your pipes outside your home, water could flow into your neighbor’s yard and impact their property.
A leak inspection service in the fall prepares your home for the extra workout that your pipes get during the winter. Holiday entertaining might require heavier water usage, exacerbating existing leaks. In colder weather, the water heater gets more use for hot showers, and even the best models can leak.
Fix Leaky Pipes Before the Rainy Season
Leak detection services can identify hidden breaks or holes in pipes underground. You might have never known that tree roots have invaded your pipes, but a plumber can detect this damage before it causes serious problems. Once a pipe has been breached, bacteria can seep into your home’s incoming water. This problem could lead to contaminated drinking water.
With the occasional heavy rainfall here in Miami, winter is never the ideal time to have your yard torn up to repair pipes, so it makes sense to schedule leak detection during the fall season. If not repaired, once the rain starts, additional groundwater and bacteria can seep into holes or cracks in pipes and contaminate your water supply.
Enjoy a Safe, Dry, and Odor-Free Home for the Holidays
Water leaks can do a lot of structural damage to your home very quickly. Have a plumber inspect areas of your home that have a slight mildewy odor, buckled floorboards, or wet carpet. Check your walls for any cracks, sagging, or foul odors. During winter, you might think these were caused by rainwater that got into the house once, instead of an ongoing plumbing leak.
Having these issues looked at in the fall gives your plumber the chance to repair them before further damage occurs. A plumber will also check for cracks in your home’s foundation and basement and perform several other checks to identify existing or potential water leaks.
