Expert Leak Detection

Any leak can wreak havoc on a home’s woodwork and put the home’s residents at risk of exposure to harmful gas leaks. With pipes running throughout your home’s walls, floors and ceilings, leaks can be hiding for months without any signs. This is where leak detection becomes equally useful for spotting and fixing active leaks and providing the peace of mind that a home’s plumbing and pipework are sufficiently installed.

At McLay services, we understand that no leak is acceptable. Leaks can raise your water bill or gas bills, cause expensive wood rot and place your home in danger of unhealthy or even flammable gas leaks. This is why it is a responsible choice as a homeowner to have your piping inspected at least once a year. As the majority of your pipes are not exposed, self-leak-detection can be challenging. McLay Services utilizes a number of advanced detection methods that allows us to examine pressure levels, energy emission, audio waves and other key identifiers that can reveal leaks without having to bust into your home’s walls.

Importance of Leak Detection

Just like a simple spill on hardwood floors, we know to soak up any moisture that comes in contact with the lumber inside of our homes. This is because wood is very absorbent and will retain this water. When this occurs inside our home’s walls or underneath our flooring, there is no way for that water to evaporate. What happens next can lead to serious structural issues for your home. The water will begin to rot the wood, affecting its ability to properly support your home or place of business.

The difference between preemptive detection measures and post leak repairs can save you thousands in repair costs just by simply having a  plumber come out to your home to inspect your pipes. A simple inspection or even simple servicing to sure up your plumbing pales in comparison to having a leak damage the structural integrity of an entire wall or floor of your home.

Health Risks of Gas Leaks

Dollars and cents are one thing, but your health and the health of your family is an entirely different priority. When you are home, you should always feel safe and secure. Something as simple as a minor tremor can shake a gas pipe loose and leave your home or business vulnerable to a number of different health risks, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Trouble breathing
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • In severe cases – loss of consciousness and even death

There’s also the factor that natural gas is extremely flammable. So not only is your property at risk of fire damage, but a sneaky natural gas leak can go unnoticed and cause a major explosion from just a simple spark.

Why You Need an Expert

Pipe leaks are no joke. The damage to your home and health can be irreversible in certain instances. Don’t assume that you will hear or see a pipe leak. As pipes run throughout your home or place of business, a small leak can easily go unnoticed and grow into a major problem.

If you have a water leak, you want to ensure that the leak is properly secured now and for the future. You will likely want your entire plumbing system examined as a leak can be a sign of an aging pipe.

If you are dealing with a natural gas leak, exposure can be lethal. Allow a qualified professional to handle these leaks. They will have the precision to perform a safe and secure repair job while limiting the risk of repair.

Don’t put your home’s integrity or the health of your loved ones in the hands of an inexperienced handyman or contractor. Reach out to the experts at McLay for reliable results and efficient servicing.
