    The Dangers of Leaking Pipes

    Although leaking pipes may not seem like an issue in need of your immediate attention, delaying repair can be hazardous. Damp spots that are left in areas that don’t get a lot of light to dry out become the perfect environment for mold to grow.

    If you allow these spots to form and mold to grow, they can have some fairly severe health effects on you and your family. Exposure to mold can lead to symptoms such as a stuffy nose, wheezing, itchy/red eyes or skin. If it turns out that someone in your household is allergic to mold, the symptoms can be much more intense.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the most common causes of leaking pipes?2020-09-29T16:34:40+00:00

    Just like there are many causes for a water line to break, so too are there many reasons for which your pipes might leak. Leaks are common in plumbing systems which are old and outdated. Older systems and pipes often suffer corrosion or warping which can cause leaks. Defective or poorly installed pipes are also very prone to leaking as shoddy plumbing workmanship can cause significant and expensive damage to your system. Your home’s pipes might also leak if the valves were poorly maintained or suffered damage. If you are experiencing leaking pipes, don’t wait until it’s too late – call Drain Pro Plumbing right away!

    What are the hidden signs of leaking pipes?2020-09-30T11:47:28+00:00

    Leaking pipes are sometimes tough to spot, and can go on leaking for days, months, or longer without anybody noticing. This can not only cause significant damage to your home, it also represents a pretty big waste of water – and money. Be on the lookout for the following signs that your pipes are leaking:

      • Unexpected increases in water bills:Generally speaking, water bills remain more or less consistent with some changes depending on the season, number of occupants, and a few other factors. That being said, if your jaw drops to the floor when you open your water bill and you can’t remember a reason why it is so high, there’s a pretty good chance you have a leaking pipe somewhere.
      • Check your water meter:Your water meter can help you understand whether or not your pipes are leaking water. Turn off all your faucets, make sure your appliances that consume water such as the dishwasher and washing machine are not running, and then go watch your water meter. It should not change, so if it does odds are you have a leak.
      • Mold or mildew on walls:There’s nothing mold and mildew love more than dark, moist environments. If your pipes are leaking behind your walls, it is likely that area will become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, especially if it is on a non-shower wall.
      • Sagging, stained, or damaged walls, ceilings, and flooring When there is an excess of moisture in your walls, ceiling, or floor, it can cause damage such as water stains, bubbling, or sagging. If you notice this in your home, there’s a good change you have a leaking pipe somewhere.
      • A noticeable musty smellWhen old water accumulates, it often smells musty no matter how hard you try to clean the area. If you clean your bathroom or any other room and it continues to have a musty smell, there’s a good chance that water has accumulated there.

    The consequences of having leaky pipes can be very serious and should not be taken lightly. If you suspect that there is a leak in your home, call Drain Pro Victoria right away. Fixing the problem today can save a lot of time, energy, and money tomorrow.

    What are some ways to prevent leaking pipes from happening?2021-06-17T13:30:24+00:00

    Replace sections of your pipes when you notice they become corroded. Also, avoid crowding cabinets that have exposed pipes. For instance, it is common for people to store household cleaning supplies under sinks. If there are too many items, they could be applying pressure on your pipes, which could cause them to start leaking.

    Contact us if you have any more questions about leaking pipes or system maintenance.
