SERVPRO Detects Leaks at Your Home and Business
Detecting leaks in your home is crucial to prevent costly water damage to your property’s infrastructure. However, getting water leaks fixed isn’t just vital for your home. Your family’s, employees', and customers’ comfort depend on it because excess indoor moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth.
When do you know it's time to call the professionals in to investigate if water is leaking at your home or business? This article has the answers.
Common Signs You Need Leak Detection
Water leaks can occur anywhere on your property. However, it is worth noting that some of the leaks can be visible to the naked eye. In contrast, others occur behind ceilings and walls, causing severe damage without being noticed.
Here are some tell-tale signs of a water leak:
- Mold infestation on walls and ceilings with green or gray patches.
- You notice yellow or brown stains on ceilings and walls due to water leaks.
- You receive higher than usual water bills due to water leaks.
- When turning on the faucet or shower, water pressure is lower than usual.
- Paint or wallpaper has started peeling on your ceiling and walls.
- Floors or ceilings show signs of stains, buckling, or cracking.
- Musty odors are present in the property due to mold and mildew growth.
If these signs go unnoticed or untreated, they can have devastating effects on your business or home.
Water Leakage Detection
Besides looking for visible signs of water leaks, specialist water damage restoration contractors like SERVPRO use professional equipment to detect leaks. This is possible on water pipes and supply lines in residential and commercial properties.
Here are some of the professional methods of detecting water leaks.
The Sewerin A2000 is an electro-acoustic water leak detection method that is perfect for detecting leaks in supply lines and water pipe networks. This uses an electronic device with headphones and microphones and a color LCD touchscreen to pinpoint any water leak.
Professionals use the Sewering T10 to detect water leaks outdoors. The special sensors pick up minute noises to help locate issues with pipe leakage.
Another way to detect water leaks is by using the SebaKMT HL700. This device has sensors that pick up faint noise frequencies that leaks cause.
