Water from undetected leaks is one of the leading causes of property damage whether it is commercial or residential. Water leaks can be caused by a full range of fixtures or appliances. Here are some common sources of water leaks:
- Heating closets
- Laundry rooms
- Ice machines
Much of the time, the leak that causes damage is a pipe hidden within the walls near the offending appliance. Small leaks can go undetected for months if not longer and the result can be rotting wood, frame damage and the presence of mold. These small leaks can escalate into major leaks that results in sudden flooding. A sudden flood could be catastrophic for a business and just as a mess for a homeowner. Floods in your home or business can cause serious damage to mechanical, structural and electrical systems costing you thousands and thousands of dollars.
A water leak device is a proactive device that will notify you if a water leak is present. Such items are critical for leak prevention. Water leak devices can be utilized on the following locations:
- Apartment buildings
- Commercial buildings
It would also make sense to utilize water leak detectors in areas where expensive equipment is stored like computer or server rooms. Water detection devices will help prevent potential losses that may occur during a slow leak. And they will certainly save you from a full-scale flood caused by an undetected small leak.
