Service One, one of Orlando’s leading AC and plumbing companies, considers water leaks to be a major plumbing issue, requiring quick attention. Water leaks can cause damage to your home, cost you money and grow into a major problem. That is why Service one acts fast by helping local homeowners solve a variety of plumbing problems including water leaks. The pipes in your home receive a constant amount of pressure from the water supply; over time, pipes can begin leaking, connectors become faulty, or welds can fail. “If the leak is small, there is a possibility you won’t notice it unless the water begins pooling in a visible location,” said Service One founder and president, Bill Gouty. “If the leak is major, it may have gone undetected for some time so the breach in the pipe was allowed to grow until the entire pipe section failed.”
“The sooner a water leak is detected and repaired, the better,” continued Gouty. “Leaks can lead to the development of mold and damage ceilings, floors and wall materials. A small leak can turn into a major, unexpected cost expenditure.”
Service One technicians are skilled at detecting faucet problems and repairing leaks using the best tools and the latest techniques to quickly locate leaks at their source and repair them.
Signs a Home May Have a Leak
- Running water sounds when nothing is turned on
- Unusually high water bills
- Wet and/or mildew spots on walls and floors
- Warm spots on the floor
- Standing water in the crawlspace or basement
- Mushy part in the yard that won’t dry
What Can Cause a Leak?
- High water pressure
- Clogged drains
- Deteriorating pipes
- Rusting water heaters
- Root intrusion
Sometimes, an issue as simple as high water pressure can cause leaks. “It’s important to determine the water pressure because if it’s too it can high can cause leaks, wastes water and can ruin your pipes” said Gouty. “To prevent these leaks, ServiceOne offers water pressure diagnosis and can resolve these types of issues.”
In conclusion, water leaks can be very serious and costly, so it’s important to call a plumber right away at the first sign of a leak.
