Leaks aren’t always easily visible. More often than not, water leaks often go unnoticed until they get to a point where they exhibit obvious indicators. Here are a few issues that you might have to deal with when pipe leaks go unnoticed and how water leak repair in Lexington, KY from Fast Flow Plumbing can help.

Mold and Mildew

One of the most disastrous things about water leaks is that they can cause mold to develop in any room where it has accumulated. Mold spores spread quickly, especially if standing water lasts for an extended time. It can seep into your walls and cause severe damage. Scheduling annual water leak detection services with a trained professional before mold growth can take root in your home.

Structural Damage

Water leaks can slowly erode your home’s foundation if leak repair services aren’t carried out right away. Constant exposure to water will weaken the building materials that make up your home’s structure, making them more vulnerable to external pressure and other threats like earthquakes or storms.

Water Damage

Depending on the material that your furniture and other home appliances are made from, the consequences of water damage and the need for leak repair can range from minimal to extreme. For example, if your favorite book gets wet due to a leak and you leave it in a place where it will not be dried for a long time, mold can grow inside it, making it useless instead of just damaged. Therefore, when checking for leaks, make sure that you check all places where water could pool.
