Small leaks may seem like a bit of an inconvenience, but not a major problem. However, they can grow with time if left unrepairable or undetected. Additionally, water build up can cause major damage to a home from both a structural and health stand point. Insects carry a multitude of diseases, and dank, moist environments are the perfect breeding ground for many varieties of insects. When you ignore a gas leak, you help to create an environment that invites insects in, as well as mold and mildew. This can affect your health and the value of your home. Some insect infestations are incredibly difficult to clear up, and prospective buyers will not be interested in taking on the problem. Unfortunately for many, water service leaks are not always immediately noticeable.
The water dumps into the ground and can make its way quite a distance before pooling. Water service leaks may be accompanied by a loss of water pressure, or they may be virtually unnoticed but for some increased moisture in the home. You need to be very aware of the conditions in your home to determine when you may have a plumbing issue.
