No One Likes the Sound of Drip, Drip, Drip
We all know the sound a leaky faucet makes when the house is quiet. A leaky toilet, leaky pipe, or leaky faucet is not only a nuisance and inconvenience, but can cause serious structural damage. Water leaks that are in plain sight are easy to identify and usually easy to fix by a professional plumber. While small leaks might not seem like a big issue, they should always be repaired. Small leaks can quickly lead to larger leaks, increased water bills, and a waste of a natural resource.
Water leaks can also be sneaky and destructive, hiding behind walls, cupboards, and beneath floors. Undetected water leaks have the potential to cause costly damage to surfaces, structures, floors, walls, and more around the home, eventually leading to indoor mold and mildew. If you suspect a water leak, call Great Quality Plumbing immediately to repair the leak and prevent further damage to your home.
