A leak is perhaps the most common plumbing issue – and the most common to put off fixing. However, a small leak can turn into a larger leak in no time, which can then cause your home to potentially flood. Homeowner’s insurance policies typically cover flooding because of how much havoc they wreak. In a flood, you can lose everything, from your walls and floors to your furniture and personal effects.
Leaks around sinks, the toilet, or the bathtub can cause mold. Mold causes rot, in addition to health problems, and it grows quickly. And, of course, once your structures begin to rot, you risk total collapse.
Leaks in other areas, such as a leaky underground pipe, can allow for tree roots to enter the crack and cause a clog. This can back up your sewer line, which can cause raw sewage to back up into your home. So, while a leak may at first seem like nothing, it can, as you can see, quickly turn into something.
The Risks Involved with Delaying Plumbing Repairs
A plumbing repair should be one of the first things you pay attention to as a homeowner. You do not want water getting out of control in your home. Here are some of the potential consequences you face in delaying plumbing repairs:
- Compromised walls or floors due to excessive moisture
- Infestations of insects who love water
- A higher water bill (from using more water)
- Unpleasant odors
It may seem like your plumbing issue is only a small problem right now, but it will not be long before you have a problem that is twice as serious to deal with. Do not delay your plumbing repairs. Call a licensed professional for help today.
Mold is one of the worst problems a homeowner can face. Not only is it unsightly, but it can also be harmful to your health. You can develop an allergic reaction to mold and, in more severe cases, it can also damage your lungs. Mold is especially dangerous for young children or those with compromised immune systems.
Mold develops whenever moisture is present and left unattended. If you leave mold unattended, it continues to grow. Depending on the severity of your mold problem, you may need to hire a professional to ensure you have properly cleaned it all up.
If you have experienced water damage before, then you know few home repairs can compare to the headaches brought on by a leaky pipe. Water damage can cause you thousands of dollars to repair, from floors and ceilings to even furniture and other pieces of expensive property. Water damage can even cause businesses to violate the building and health codes in their states.
It is probably safe to say that if you have sewage backing up into your home, you’re going to tend to that fairly quickly. However, what you may not realize is that the seemingly innocuous plumbing issue you are experiencing right now could be a sign that you are ultimately risking a full-fledge sewage backup.
A sewage backup is common for more serious plumbing issues, but that doesn’t make it any less hazardous. Not only is it disgusting and expensive to clean up a sewage backup, but there are numerous health hazards that sewage poses that no one in your home should be exposed to if you can help it.
