What Causes Leaks?
One thing all homeowners and businesses should know is that any property can experience a leak regardless of age. With that being said, one common reason properties experience leaks is due to the age of their pipes. Age leads to corrosion and rusting, which means your pipes are more susceptible to leaking.
Another reason for water leaks is extreme temperature changes. Cold weather can cause water in your pipes to freeze and expand. The extra pressure caused by the expanded water can crack your pipes. That’s why you should let water drip from a faucet in your home when temperatures approach freezing. Other water leaks causes include:
- Excessively high water pressure
- Improper pipe installation
- Soil conditions
- Tree roots

That’s why our experienced specialists use a combination of techniques and tools to pinpoint leaks.
Is It Safe To Ignore a Water Leak if It Causes No Harm?
Let’s say you’re noticing a higher-than-usual utility bill which may indicate your experience of a water leak. At the same time, you don’t see any damage to your property. Do you need to act?
The answer is a resounding yes.
Just because you can’t see the damage doesn’t mean it won’t come back to bite you. Small leaks left unchecked will cause more and more destruction and deterioration. It can also set up the potential for dangerous amounts of mold growth. Handling the problem early on means you’re saving yourself from massive headaches and repair/restoration bills.
