The health of your property greatly relies on the health of your plumbing. Making sure that your home is free from leaks can prevent serious and costly repairs later on down the road. Unless you see a change in the appearance of your hardwood floor or you notice your water bill has been creeping up, it’s sometimes difficult to determine if you have a leak in your plumbing. Leaks that are deeper in your home may be especially difficult to find and may not be visible until you have a major repair on your hands. Regularly checking your property for leaks and calling in experts for electronic leak detections can help ensure your property is well tended.
What is electronic leak detection?
Electronic leak detection is a one of the best ways to hunt down a leak on your property. Using very sensitive equipment and high-powered microphones, our technicians can discover leaks in your metal piping, if any, and make the necessary repairs. During a procedure they’ll carefully trace pipe from one location to another to locate hot or cold-water leaks in your slab. This advanced equipment can also detect dangerous gas leaks.
What can a water or gas leak mean for your wallet and property?
Water and gas leaks can have many disastrous effects on the health of your property and family. Some common issues caused by water or gas leaks include:
- Denied insurance claims due to long term, undetected water leaks
- Costly repairs to damaged flooring from water
- Mold caused by water under the floor and in the walls
- Wasted water expenses
- Carbon monoxide poisoning from gas leaks
- Explosions – in extreme cases – caused by gas leaks
