When you know that you have an issue with your plumbing, it is very important to fix the problem sooner rather than later. If you wait, the necessary repairs will be much more extensive and more costly as a result.
The Risk of Procrastinating your plumbing Repairs
When you have detected a leak, or there is a drain clogged, letting the issue stay unresolved will only lead to more problems down the road including:
- Water damage to the surrounding materials.
- Mold growth
- Structural Damage
- Water loss
- Higher water bill
- Unpleasant odors in your home or office
- A foul mood
A simple $100 fix, if left unfixed, can quickly turn into thousands. Small leaks, if left alone, can slowly accumulate under flooring, or pool in ceilings. As the water slowly trickles, pools, and eventually showers, your electronics, hardwood flooring, and many pieces of your home’s structural integrity can be severely compromised.
The Real Risks
The presence of water also contributes to mold growth. And the presence of mold indoors can bring some serious health issues to your family, or employees, including allergic reactions and lung complications.
But of all the risks, be particularly wary of the consequences of a foul mood. It can have drastic effects on your relationships both business and personal, and relationships are the most treasured part of life. At least, they are here at Done Plumbing & Heating. No matter how bad the situation, there is a fix, and we can help.
What to Do About It
If you have a leak, fix it now. If you have clogged drain, fix it now. Please make sure you have completely fixed the issue, however, as improperly fixing (or partially fixing) can lead to more problems down the road. If you need help, call us, and we will be there shortly.
