Early detection of leaks, particularly slab leaks, can prevent major damage to a home. If there is water pooling under your home, it could eventually burst through and cause your floors and floorboards to buckle and break. This could result in a safety hazard for your family which could have been prevented by early detection of the slab leak. Jacksonville residents who have been through a disaster situation caused when something like this happens can testify to the importance of calling in a company like American Leak Detection.
So what’s the difference between a leak detection service and a plumber? A leak detection service is all about prevention. Companies like American Leak Detection find the problem and help you correct it before it has a chance to further damage property. Many plumbers will use the hit-and-miss approach to locating a leak.
For a standard plumbing leak, Jacksonville residents should not discount the importance of a leak detection service, particularly if your pipes are old. If there is a leak in one location then there could likely be another someplace else. Companies like American Leak Detection will use non-invasive technology to find the problems and correct them with a minimum amount of effort and clean-up.
Unseen water leaks in a home can lead to more than just major flooding problems. Pools of water are ideal places for pests such as insects and rodents to breed and grow. The moisture build-up can also be a prime location for mold to form, some of which releases toxins that can be harmful to the health or your family and household pets. Public health agencies recommend that you remove mold and check plumbing regularly for leaks and breaks. Calling in a leak detection company to do this is often more cost effective and always less of a headache than calling a plumber.
By the time you get to the point where you need a plumber you’re already looking at hundreds and potentially thousands of dollars in damages that will need to be repaired.
