We’re Luke and Michael from Safeguard Plumbing, and we’re here to help you understand the damage that leaks can cause.

Leaks are a common problem that can lead to a range of issues, including structural damage, mold and mildew growth, wood rot and decay, increased water bills, and damage to personal property. As experienced plumbers, we’ve seen firsthand the damage that leaks can cause, which is why we always recommend addressing them promptly.

If left unaddressed, leaks can weaken building materials and make your home or business unsafe to inhabit. They can also create an environment for mold and mildew to grow, which can pose health hazards. In areas with high moisture levels, leaks can lead to wood rot and decay, which can be particularly dangerous if the affected area is a load-bearing element of the structure.

Leaks can also waste a lot of water, driving up your water bill and putting a strain on your local water supply. This can impact the environment and contribute to water scarcity.

If water comes into contact with personal property, it can cause significant damage, which can be expensive to repair or replace. Furniture can warp or stain, while electronics can short-circuit and become unusable.

To prevent leaks from causing damage, it’s important to address them promptly and take steps to prevent them from occurring in the first place. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Safeguard Plumbing. We’re here to help keep your property safe and secure.
