The Hidden Dangers of a Water Leak
There are a lot of obvious signs of a water leak. You might see water pooling near your washing machine, or oozing out from your toilet tank. Most of the time, however, a leak is extremely hard to spot. It might be due to a problem with your window or an issue with your roof. The leak might be inside a wall or even above your ceiling.
A leak can occur suddenly, or it can develop gradually over weeks, months, or even years. During this time, water can slowly do damage, affecting the structural integrity of your home or office building. Leaks can also lead to the development of mold, which can costs thousands of dollars to eliminate.
If you have a home, a leak can be bad enough. But if you own a business, it can be even worse. A water leak can have devastating consequences for a commercial operation, including:
- Downtime – Nothing will cripple revenue streams like downtime. A leak can bring your operation to a complete standstill.
- Increased bills and insurance costs – If a leak goes undetected for a long time, that can make your water bill spike. There is also a chance that a business could see its insurance costs rise dramatically if significant water damage occurs.
- Other costs – Not only will you have to pay for repairs and cleanup, you may have other expenses you didn’t even consider. The leak may, for instance, result in municipal code violations. It could cost a lot of money for you to get back to compliance.
Advancements in Leak Detecting Technology
Water leaks can be subtle – and as a result, can be hard to detect. The old method of leak detection involved a great deal of destruction. Plumbers had to tear out flooring or drywall – and in a lot of cases, even landscaping – in order to find where a leak was occurring.
Not only did this cause a lot of damage, there was no guarantee it would even work. In far too many instances, the destruction proved unnecessary – the plumber would often have to start the whole process over again in a different area.
Thankfully, though, those days are over. The last few years have brought impressive new technology that eliminates the need to such massive damage. At Innovative Construction Solutions, we use state-of-the-art imaging technology that can precisely locate the source of a leak, whether it’s coming from your window, your roof, or anywhere else. This makes it a lot easier to take the action needed in order to fix the problem, making the old “search and destroy” approach a thing of the past.
