A Simple Water Leak Can Lead to Big Consequences in Your Encinitas CA Home

When you experience a water leak in your home for the first time, you might not think too much of it, especially if you tend to be a handy person. You might think to resolve the source of the leak on your own. But anyone who has experienced a water leak knows that a little leak can turn into a big one if it isn’t handled in time. Even a faulty repair can eventually cause the leak to get more serious.

That said, 1st Choice Plumbing, Flood & Restoration wants you to know that, yes, even smaller water leaks often necessitate the help from a professional. And, no, you aren’t a fool if you call a plumber at the first sight of a leak.

What Happens When Small Water Leaks Aren’t Tended To?

Sometimes it’s nice to brush our problems under the rug… until they continue to get worse the longer they aren’t taken care of. Like many problems, water leaks are one of those things that if you wait too long to get them resolved, not only will they not get better on their own, but they will continue to occur, getting worse in the process.

So, imagine a tiny water leak that leaves a mini puddle in your home, only for the leak to grow, and the next thing you know, you have large puddles or even a mini pool forming inside your home. Then your furniture may start to get ruined, and the growth of mold may eventually be triggered. These are just some of many consequences that might happen if you leave a small water leak be. The point is, it won’t be small forever unless you get it fixed on time.

Signs You Have a More Severe Water Leak

How do you know if your water leak is considered severe, you might ask? If puddles of liquid are forming rapidly, you’re filling up a bucket of water a day or more from the source of the leak, you notice a musty smell, furniture and electronics are getting damaged, and your water bill has been skyrocketing are some of the signs you may or may not be experiencing a severe water leak.

And it doesn’t even have to involve all the latter signs nor do things have to be completely chaotic for the issue to be considered severe. If the leak is difficult to handle and/or very inconvenient, it’s time to get emergency service from a plumber.
