How Leak Detection Services Help Homeowners Wednesday, August 07, 2019

When you own a home, it's important to take steps to protect it from possible threats or damage, such as a water leak. Non-invasive leak detection is one of the most helpful ways you can protect your investment. Having regular leak detection services done on your home can help save money, prevent property damage, and keep your home and family safe from diseases and illness.

Here are some ways that leak detection helps homeowners in Plant City, Lakeland, %%targertarea3%%, and the surrounding central Florida areas.

How Does Leak Detection Work?

Leak detection services can help prevent leaks such as this one in Lakeland, FL.

Not all leaks are as obvious as a leaky pipe or water pooling on the floor, and finding the source of a leak can be very difficult without the proper technology. Non-invasive leak detection can locate a leak without causing damage to your home, such as opening up a hole in your wall or tearing up floorboards.

With non-invasive leak detection technology, infrared cameras are used to inspect pipes and other areas at various angles to see if there are any leaks or other issues that can't easily be seen otherwise. The infrared cameras can pick up on any running water and determine where the leak is coming from. Meter testing is another popular non-invasive method that measures the water pressure in your pipes to a healthy, leak-free pipe. If there is a significant difference in pressure, a leak may be present. Both these methods are efficient, safe, and don't cause any damage to your home.

Leak Detection Saves You Money

When you have a leak somewhere in your home, you are wasting hundreds of gallons of water each day. As a result, your water bill can increase drastically, which is a good indicator that you have a leak. Catching a leak before it gets larger can save water and save you money on an unnecessarily high water bill.

Leak detection also prevents serious damage to your home which in turn saves you money in the long run. Repairing home damage can be very costly, therefore it's much more financially sound to pay less upfront for leak detection services and ensure you don't have a costly damage repair bill later on!

Leak Detection Prevents Serious Damage to Your Property

One of the most important ways leak detection helps you as a homeowner is by preventing serious damage to your property. Even the smallest water leak can eventually lead to worse problems that cause damage, cost a lot of money, and pose serious health risks.

Leaks can lead to sewer backups, soil erosion, flooding, and buildup of mildew which leads to mold. When a sewer backs up, it can flood your property with hazardous waste which can harm your health and cause severe illness. Water damage can cause flooding and soil erosion which eats at your property's foundation and destroys its integrity, as well as your belongings inside your home. Paint, plaster, and wallpaper all become eroded and damaged from a leak, and if left alone create the perfect environment for mildew and mold buildup. It only takes 24-48 hours for mold to grow and once the spores are moving throughout the air, you and anyone else in your home can get dangerously ill.

Regular leak-detection services, such as our non-invasive detection method, can locate a leak before it becomes a serious problem and causes damage or health risks to you and your family.
