Leaky Faucets or Sinks?

How Water Damage Wreaks Havoc on Your Investment

It may seem like a stretch to think about a leaking sink or faucet leak as a significant threat to your health and home. But, in reality, water ranks as the single greatest threat to a residential property.

Water penetrations are the No. 1 cause of mold growths in homes. Mold flourishes in dark, warm areas and spreads quickly. All it requires is moisture and a food source and mold can take root behind walls and under floors. The moisture comes gift wrapped from leaking sinks and faucets. The food source is the building materials that comprise your home.

Consider how warm your bathroom becomes after a hot shower. A water leak under a bathroom cabinet is like adding fertilizer to a planted mold spore. In the kitchen, that ongoing drip can find its way to the flooring under the counter. This is another primary area for hazardous mold growths.

Although these sometimes-minor leaks seem relatively harmless, mold can have a dangerous effect on your health and the health of loved ones. Once it spreads, you could be looking at tens of thousands of dollars in home rehabilitation costs. It all starts with a plumbing leak.

Our hot water heater stopped working this week. We called Matt and he and his team came out and quickly figured out what the issue was, told us, and were able to repair it easily. He did a great job of explaining our options. I definitely recommend giving Conner Plumbing a call!
