No one likes it when they hear the sound of a dripping tap. Initially, the leaks did feel small like a trickle of water, but did you know that a leaky faucet could mean that there was something far more serious and dangerous to the furniture of the house? Leaking pipes, which are ignored for a long time, can wreak havoc throughout the house such as poor water quality, dirty walls due to contact with water spots, invasive black mold, and the most severe can cause flooding to reduce the value of your home. A problem that is considered small like this can result in financial losses that are not small. That is why whenever you find a leak you need to immediately call a plumber.
An indication that is worth noting the first time is checking if the walls at home are wet or stained, it is most likely due to a pipe leak. Second, recognize the room temperature that feels humid, because it will cause mold to grow quickly. Usually, this fungus grows in the bathroom, but can also be found under the sink and behind any wall. Molds from leaking pipes cause serious health and hygiene problems that need to be dealt with immediately. The longer it is ignored the worse the damage will occur. And finally, the worst thing that can happen with a leak that is not overcome, of course, floods. With a burst pipe, your house will be flooded and all the furniture will be exposed to water, which will speed up the damage.
Water flowing through the pipe at high speed has the possibility of increasing the risk of the pipe so that there will be an explosion. A sudden change in pressure on the pipe makes the water flow too much so that the pipe is bound and eventually results in leakage. Extreme temperature changes that generally occur in cold weather can cause the pipes to freeze so they are prone to cracking. Therefore, to prevent the pipe from leaking, it is important to ensure that all of the above factors are controlled. If you see something unusual, contact a licensed plumber immediately to inspect before a disaster occurs that is only caused by a small leak.
