What can cause hidden water leaks?
One of the most prevalent causes of hidden water leaks is the aging of pipes. Old pipes can rust, corrode, or freeze, causing leaks to form in difficult-to-detect areas. Appliances and appliance connections can also age and deteriorate, leading to leaks.
Shoddy workmanship can also lead to hidden water leaks. Poorly installed pipes can leak at the elbows and cause numerous leak problems.
What are professional leak detection techniques?
Fortunately, there are several ways that we can detect hidden leaks in your home before the problem gets too bad. One way that we can find hidden leaks is by measuring pipes’ water pressure to determine if they are leaking. We may also choose to dig and drill the area that has been impacted by the leak.
Another professional detection possibility is to use an infrared camera to discover the leak by examining the pictures taken of the pipes.
How can you avoid hidden water leaks?
There are multiple steps you can take to prevent damage to pipes that can cause hidden water leaks. One thing that you can do is to have a professional regularly inspect your pipes so that corroding pipes can be replaced before they begin leaking. You should also take special care of your pipes in winter by wrapping them in insulation and leaving cabinet doors open so that warm air can keep them from freezing and bursting.
If all of your pipes are old, you might want to consider hiring a professional to simply replace all of your old pipes, effectively cutting the risk of hidden leaks forming.
What are the dangers?
A hidden water leak can cause molds to form in your home, potentially making you ill and compromising your health. Such leaks can also cause electrical fires due to compromised building materials that have been damaged by the hidden leak. You could also be seriously injured if a portion of the house such as the floor or roof gave way due to wood, drywall, etc. that have been damaged by hidden leaks.
Ultimately, hiring a professional to help you stop hidden leaks before they start and to fix them if they are already present, can save you lots of money—or even your life. Procrastinating or failing to monitor your home properly will not help you stop hidden leaks, so contact us before hidden water leaks become a hazard.
