Water Leak Issues & Resolution
What Are the Dangers of Leaking Pipes?
Leaky pipes are dangerous for several reasons. Water that seeps out of pipes is likely to cause a major flood. When the flooding is over, you are left with severe flood damage and mold growth.
Mold is dangerous to humans and animals. You can develop serious respiratory problems after a few weeks of heavy exposure.
Lastly, a wet, slippery floor leads to falls, and a wet, dirty floor leads to bacterial infections. If leaky pipes contain gas, the results are even worse. If the pipes contain water, you need a good leak detection service provider.
