The Importance of Leak Detection in Austin Homes

You do everything you can to keep your home well-maintained, from fresh paint for the outside to new furniture in your living room. One area where you might be falling short is doing something about that annoying dripping faucet in your bathroom or kitchen. Something that seems like a minor nuisance could be an indication of a severe problem within your plumbing or sewage lines.

Signs to Look For

Even if your faucets aren’t showing signs of trouble, you may still have issues with water leaks in your Austin home. How often have you noticed — and brushed off — any of the following warning signs?

  • Hearing water running even when everything appears to be turned off
  • Unexplained cracks appearing in your flooring or walls
  • The sudden appearance of bugs due to ground moisture
  • Your water meter spinning even when there’s no water turned on
  • Skyrocketing water bills
  • The scent of sewage

Don’t continue overlooking these warning signs, especially if you’ve noticed more than one of them. Calling in plumbing professionals like Christianson Air Conditioning and Plumbing can end up saving you a ton of money and heartache in the long run and help with leak detection Austin services.

The Consequences of Unchecked Water Leaks

If leaking water touches electrical wiring within the home, it could end up causing a lot of damage. That’s a significant risk for homes with basements that have water leaks in the foundation. A major spillage could cause water to rise high enough to contact your wall outlets and electric appliances.

The water can also carry electrical currents, posing a risk to residents who might attempt to wade into rescue items. The contact between the water and electricity might also cause sparks within walls, which could end up igniting a fire.

Sewage leaks bring the risk of bacteria and serious illness if it spills over into your home. It’s essential that you follow proper safety precautions if this ends up happening. People with respiratory problems are also at risk of being triggered by gasses from sewage spills. That’s why leak detection Austin services are so essential.
