Why You Need Leaks Repaired, No Matter How Small

No one likes dealing with plumbing leaks, and it may be tempting to simply ignore them: especially if they’re small. This is invariably a huge mistake. Our Frederick, MD plumbing repair services can fix most leaks fairly quickly and in the process save you a lot of money.

Here’s why you need leaks repaired, no matter how small:

Leaky water is damaging, not only to the plumbing, but also to surrounding wood and other components in your home. If the water is just allowed to leak out, it can soften the wood in the walls and beneath the sink, necessitating their repair. Over time, this can become extremely expensive, and even if left for just a short while, the damage it can cause to your home is staggering. And that’s only the immediate effects. Leaks into wood can facilitate the growth of mold, spores and fungus, which can in turn create a substantial health risk for you and your family.

In addition, the plumbing itself becomes less useful when leaks spring up. The water pressure drops and your faucet won’t run as quickly or as smoothly. In some case, it might not run at all, and until the leak is repaired that part of the plumbing might very well become useless.

Lost water also means higher bills as well, since the water leaking out of the pipe still has to be paid for. Finally and perhaps most obviously, leaks create puddles which can in turn create a safety hazard. You can choose to mop up the water every day (or even every few hours depending on the severity of the leak), or you can summon a qualified plumber and get the problem addressed.
