We are all familiar with the steady drip-drip-drip sound of a leaking tap. However, not all leaks are kind enough to announce their presence. Sometimes, a leak in the walls, floors or yard of your Bradenton, FL home can go undetected until it reaches a point where it causes serious problems for you and your family. That’s why water leak detection is an essential service.
What are the risks of hidden water leaks in or on your Bradenton property?
Water damage: It only takes a small amount of water to ruin walls, floors, furniture, and valuables. Many homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover this damage, which can be expensive to repair.
Mold growth: Mold and mildew need moisture to proliferate. Toxic black mold can make people extremely ill, especially anyone with allergies, asthma or a weakened immune system.
Higher water bills: Plumbing leaks can waste hundreds of gallons of water and leave you shocked when you look at your monthly utility bills.
Water leaks can be costly in more ways than one, and anything in your house that uses water can spring a leak. Even if you consider yourself a handy homeowner, you may be out of your depth when it comes to detecting leaks. That’s because leaks aren’t always easy to spot visually or audibly.
You may have a mental image of a leaky water heater that floods your basement or garage. While it’s true this kind of leak can happen, it is also common for people to have tiny, pinhole leaks in the pipes buried far underground. These leaks cause incremental damage, so you can have one for a long time without suspecting any problem within your Bradenton foundation or pipelines.
Old-fashioned methods of leak detection relied heavily on guesswork. They were also destructive, often requiring extensive digging and property damage that left Bradenton, FL property owners with costly repair bills. New, acoustic leak detection technologies represent a far less disruptive innovation that also saves time and money.
Water leaks make a distinctive noise within pipes. As you might guess, small leaks have a higher-frequency noise, and larger ones are on lower frequencies. Using advanced tools, we can find leaks by differentiating the sound waves of leaks from those characterized by normal, unimpeded water flow. Based on our expert analysis, we can quickly and accurately detect the nature and location of the leak.
