Plumbing, like roofing, becomes prone to water leaks as its parts wear out over time. Corrosion and rust, cracks and leaky pipe joints, and excessive water pressure cause pipes, faucets, toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers to leak. Undetected and untreated, water leaking from old pipes and hoses contributes to mold and mildew growth.
Cracks in foundation slabs and exterior walls, and weathered seals around doors and windows allow moisture to build in walls and beneath carpeting, tile, laminate and wood flooring. Thermal imaging technology detects hidden water leaks before discoloration, sewage odor, and mold appear. Advanced leak detection miminizes potential water damage including higher than normal water bills.
