Dangers of Delaying Plumbing Repairs

water leaking from ceilingA leaky faucet. A running toilet. Low water pressure in the shower. All of these issues seems like something that you can live with, but may indicate a larger underlying plumbing problem.

Addressing small problems before they become major ones is key. Major plumbing catastrophes can be devastating and expensive. They can cause damage to the structural integrity of your home and damage or destroy your valuable possessions, including furniture and other property. In addition, your floors can also be severely damaged if flooding occurs.

Other underlying problems can also arise from what appears to be a small leak. Unseen by you, water can leak into walls and floors, making conditions perfect for mold to grow. Breathing mold can aggravate allergies and cause dangerous lung problems, especially for children.

Plumbing leaks can also be costing you thousands of dollars. A leaky toilet can be one of the most wasteful components of your household plumbing. Inefficient toilets can add more than $2,000 to your yearly water bill.

Proactive maintenance of your entire system is the best investment to ensure your home is 100% leak free. Fixing small problems before they become big ones saves you time, money, and headaches. If you have a plumbing issue, call Haldeman Mechanical today!
