Although caring for your pipes and drains is one of the most critical aspects of maintaining a home or a commercial property, it is also one of the most complicated, particularly when it comes to tracking down a leak in your plumbing system. While some larger leaks may be obvious to the naked eye, many smaller leaks are so tiny it is hard to discover them, particularly if they are hidden deep underground or behind your walls.
Regardless of how little a leak may be in size, it can cause a significant amount of damage. In fact, every house in the U.S. wastes anywhere from 2,000 to 20,000 gallons of water annually. To avoid this exorbitant and costly expenditure, call our team at Mayes & Sons Plumbing, Inc. right away for dedicated leak detection.
Identifying the Warning Signs of Leaking Pipes
A leak in your pipes will cause a lot of damage in a very short amount of time. This is why it is so important to reach out to our professional leak detectors as soon as possible.
What are the warning signals that you may even have a problem with leaks to begin with? Look out for the following tell-tale signs, and let our team know as soon as you discover any:
- Water spots or stains on your walls, floors, and ceilings
- Warped wood and laminate, especially below the U-bends in pipes
- Drywall that has turned a dingy yellow or brown
- Continuously low water pressure
- Visible or audible signs of dripping
- Hissing sounds from the pipes within your walls
- Showerheads that have become loose and wobbly, creating a hidden leak connecting to the pipe
- Musty smells or rotten sewage odors
- A spinning dial in your water meter when you have turned off your plumbing appliances and fixtures
Because it is so easy to miss a small leak, many business and residence owners are completely unaware that they are losing their valuable savings. To keep your foundation safe from deterioration deep within, reach out to our knowledgeable contractors right away for dependable leak detection in Cleveland.
The Importance of Reaching Out to Our Professionals
When it comes to finding these costly, damaging leaks, you cannot afford to rely on any
hit-or-miss version of detection. While you may be able to find one or two leaks on your own, it is impossible to tell where all of the weak spots are in your piping system, particularly if there is a hairline crack so slight that it does not yet produce visible drips.
Even though it is true that a large wet patch within your yard or a damp spot on your business’s concrete slab might suggest a leak, in many situations, the actual leak can be located a few feet away. Moreover, it is almost impossible to detect an underground leak, whether in your lateral pipes and water main, when the leak is buried under thick layers of soil or concrete. Trust our trained contractors at Mayes & Sons Plumbing, Inc. to safely identify your leaks without destroying your property.
When you’re facing a plumbing problem of any magnitude, it’s very important that you don’t wait to contact a professional. Even if the issue seems minor, it could very well grow into a more complex and costly problem. In some cases, detecting the severity of a problem is difficult without the help of a plumber, as something that appears small may actually be much more extensive than you think.
We work to solve your problem not sell you on something new. They do not work on any commission so let our team walk you through the right solution every time.
