FLO LEAK DETECTION
Leaks Happen. But They Don’t Have To!
You’re finally back from the long vacation over the summer, having escaped the scorching heat of the south for a more forgiving summer up north. You’re exhausted from traveling and more than ready for a nap in your own bed. You worked hard to get everything in the house cleaned, put away, and fixed before your departure – so the last thing you want to open the door to is the results of an unknown leak that has turned disastrous in your absence. Unfortunately, no matter how much we prepare our homes before we leave things can always go wrong. Water leaks are one of the many nightmares that a home owner can face – and unfortunately they can strike at the worst of times. The problem with water leaks is that they aren’t always obvious, and they can happen even in areas that you can’t see. For this reason, being on the lookout for leaks isn’t always easy. Leaky faucets are a no-brainer, but what happens when the leak is occurring in pipes behind the walls? Or what about that slow drip under the sink in the little-used guest bathroom that ends up going unnoticed? Unknown leaks can cost up to thousands of dollars in repair, because not only will you have to pay to fix the leak, you may have to pay to fix any damage caused by water. Depending on the severity of a leak, you can face damage to the walls, floors, and ceiling of your home. Consequences of this damage can include a higher water bill due to continuous water use, mold and mildew growth, fire hazards (if electrical wiring was affected by the water), and compromised integrity of your home’s structure. The list can go on and on, but ultimately it is dependent on the type of leak that occurs. In any case, being proactive about leaks by practicing good water habits is in our best interest and will help to keep our wallets happy.
