What Kind of Damage Can A Leak Really Cause?

Leaks can be a cause for major concern not only for your property but for your health too. Catching a leak in its early stages or preventing it all together is critical for the health and safety of your home and the loved ones in it. There are many factors to consider with leak damage and we’ll list them below. If you suspect a leak in your home or would like to schedule a professional inspection, give us a call at Leak Detection of Atlanta

Where and How to Spot Leaks

Sometimes, leaks can be obvious and visible like a burst pipe that can often create a huge mess. Other times, a leak can be very sneaky and go unnoticed. There are warning signs that can signal a leak in your home. If you find stains in your ceilings or walls, change in water pressure or sudden increase on your water bill, it’s likely that you may have a leak. It is very important to have these leaks inspected and repaired immediately before they cause irreversible damage to your home or more importantly, become a health hazard. 

Health Hazards of Water Leaks

Mold and mildew are among some of the common issues caused by leaks. Even just a few drops of water can lead to damp spots where mold is likely to flourish. It can spread to different areas of your home, fast. Mold can be toxic, costly to remove, and difficult to get rid of. If ignored, mold can spread to the HVAC system, walls, floors, furniture, carpets, even clothing! Mold and mildew can have severe health effects, especially for those with respiratory issues. Mold spores are infamous for causing allergic reactions, skin irritations, nose and throat inflammation, coughing, sneezing, red eyes, and other similar allergic reactions. These health hazards should not be taken lightly. 

Water Contamination

If the leak is coming from a burst pipe that normally carries drinking water to your home, that water is at risk for contamination. Different contaminants can enter the pipe when there is a sudden change in pressure and the velocity in the pipe. At Leak Detection of Atlanta, your health and safety are our priority. If you suspect a water leak or simply need professional advice, give us a call today.

Attic and Ceiling Damage

If there is an attic in your home, then the leak coming from your roof can damage your attic and the things in it. That damage can eventually spread to the rest of your house, through your walls and ceiling. Once your ceiling is damaged, this can affect your lighting and fans. It’s crucial to take immediate action if you suspect water leaking from the roof. It’s likely that every time it rains, even just a little, the damage is going to become more difficult to resolve. 

Fire Hazard

Aside from attic and ceiling damage, leaks can cause significant structural damage. Rafters, wall framing, ceiling joists, wood deterioration, damages to the framing, and walls where the piping is located are all potential damage areas. One of the most unexpected damages of leaks is actually a fire hazard. When a leak is near electric wiring, there is a risk of short circuits and shorted wires which can result in electrical fires. When a leak is near electrical wiring, it is important to have a professional look at it as soon as possible.

All of these damages can lead to costly and extensive repairs. It’s important to catch a leak while it is still small and the damage salvageable. Acting quickly and scheduling a professional inspection is critical for the health and safety of your household. At Leak Detection of Atlanta, we’re here to help. Give us a call to schedule today!
