Leaking water can cause more than sopping towels and a general nuisance that you have to clean up, it can cause serious damage if not detected early enough. And if the leaking water is hidden, it can be even more dangerous as it can cause damage before anyone even notices it.
Some of the biggest issues that a burst pipe can cause, for example, are mold and mildew, high utility bills, structural damage, and pest infestation. To go into more detail, all of these problems can be both life-threatening as well as cost you an insane amount of money. Mold, if not detected soon enough, can not only damage materials in your house, such as your walls or appliances but also cause severe respiratory problems. It can be costly to remove mold damage, and the cost of your family’s health can be considered much higher as well.
When it comes to increasing your utility bill, times are tough enough as it is with prices for everything rising every day. If you’re paying for water you’re not using due to the leak, it’s just another hassle you shouldn’t have to worry about. And if the added moisture in your home persists, your costs of repair will inevitably be even higher. Most of the furniture and materials in your home can’t keep remaining intact with moisture. Paint will start to peel, metal can corrode, wood can rot, and mildew will grow in areas as well.
If those issues were not enough, some pests are attracted to moist places, so getting rid of pest infestations will have to be another bill to incur if the leak is not detected in time. Pest control is itself an expensive service to pay for, and this can compound of the leaks and lead to mold or other issues you must also now spend money to resolve.
