Do you really need commercial leak detection services?
Commercial leak detection is a big job. The larger the property the more difficult it is to find the problem. As a result, unscrupulous companies may delay the leak detection process. A plumbing company that provides leak detection and is paid by the hour has a motivation to delay the process and overcharge. Whether you’re dealing with water intrusion, a cracked pipe, a slab leak or a sewer backup, it’s important to address the problem promptly and efficiently.
Slab leak problems can be particularly devastating for commercial and municipal buildings. This is because slab leaks are difficult to spot, and you’re less likely to notice the symptoms in a commercial environment. For example, a slab leak may cause hot floors in your home. While it’s likely that you would notice heated floors at home when you’re walking barefoot, it would be unusual for employees to take off their shoes and walk across the flooring.
In addition to slab leaks, there are other unique challenges associated with commercial leak detection. Although most commercial and municipal building do not have readily accessible basements, many do have crawl spaces. You probably access your crawl spaces rarely, and as a result they can be the site of untreated leaks. Crawl spaces also create the perfect breeding ground for mold, which can be a serious health hazard to building occupants.
Our goal is to preserve your daily routine so that little to no disruption occurs in your business. If you suspect a leak, be on the lookout for common signals. Some of these signs include: the sound of running water, peeling paint, mold growth, or cracks in walls. At The Waterboy, our leak detectors have the expertise and experience needed to locate the source of the problem without damaging your property.
