What’s The Worst That Could Happen? Why You Shouldn’t Ignore the Signs of Water Damage
We’re all guilty of burying our heads in the sand when it comes to niggling jobs: we half paint the bedroom; we let the cupboard door hang on one hinge a touch too long, we ignore the dripping of our taps. Usually a bit of procrastination never hurt anyone but when it comes to your pipes you could be setting yourself up for a costly headache in the future. Don’t tempt fate, deal with the damage the moment you see the signs.
A Flooded Room or Cellar
If your pipe work is guilty of leaving you with small and persistent leaks you might think you’re saving money by resigning yourself to frequent mopping up jobs, but really you’re enabling the problem to get worse. One day your little leak becomes a large burst leaving you with a flood and the bill for an emergency repair job. Flooding can costs thousands to put right, it’s not just the repair but the cost of treating the water damage to walls, floors and furniture. Don’t take the risk when it’s likely to be a simple fix.
What You See Is the Tip of the Iceberg
You might be able to live with the sound of the ‘drip drip drip’ but your walls might not be so tolerant. Leaking within your walls can cause unseen damage to your home’s structure, damage such as wood rot, peeling paint, mould and mildew, if you let the problem persist the damage will continue to spread and then it won’t just be a plumber you need. Get a professional to come in and fix the job correctly so you can sleep soundly at night.
