Leaky pipes can be a bad problem, a bad sign and something that can cause much larger, more worse things to happen behind the scenes than you’d like to happen. These leaks can be a cause of concern for many reasons. The first being that you’re inviting mold and mildew to be trapped within the walls. You’re allowing the water to run freely throughout the home, inside the areas where wood is not structurally sound when it is wet with moisture.
In addition to this, termites and other bugs that enjoy moist wood will come crawling into the home, inside the walls and start eating away at the wood that they find. This is something that is a problem. It is something that you do not want to happen since the integrity of your home can be at risk, at fault when there is not enough structural support holding your home together because of the moisture, the leaky pipes and the insects.
What You Can Do
There are many things that you can do when it comes to having leaky pipes.
First, you have to find out where the water is coming from. Check for leaky pipes under the bathroom sink, under the kitchen sink, by the shower or tub and so on. Wherever there is water, or whatever may need water such as a hot water heater, a dishwasher, washing machine and so on; you should check for leaks. Is it wet, is it moist and can you feel the dampness in the air or around the item?
Next, you have to consider if the pipes that are leaking are within the walls. This can cause further problems if you are not careful. You want to make sure that the water is not leaking through the walls, creating moisture, mildew and build up throughout the areas of the wood and sheet rock. This can cause further problems that you’re not going to want to worry about later on down the road. Mold and mildew can make everyone in the home sick if it is not taken care of, or the moisture is not wicked.
