Don't Ignore Your Leaky Faucet

leaky faucetWhile a leaky faucet may be somewhat of an annoyance, it can be easy for homeowners to ignore. But, before you start to tune out that dripping sound or turn a blind eye to the leak, you should be aware that there are some repercussions to ignoring this common problem. In many cases, the plumbing repair is quick and inexpensive compared to future issues that could occur due to a leaky faucet. To help you understand the importance of getting faucet leaks repaired, here's what could happen when you ignore them.

Leaky faucets waste water – increasing your bill

When you have a leaky faucet, you’re literally watching money go down the drain. While the drip may not seem like you’re losing a lot of water, it will accumulate quickly and can end up adding a significant amount to your bill each month.

The extra moisture from the faucet can cause mold and mildew

A continual drip is going to add extra and continued moisture to the area, and this eventually leads to mold and mildew. This can affect the indoor air quality and lead to expensive home improvements. If the leak is under the faucet, then mildew grows faster because of the dark and damp environment that has been created.

Expect to replace faucet features sooner rather than later

While faucet features are designed to handle water, that doesn’t mean that they’re invincible to damage from excessive amounts of moisture. The longer the drip occurs, the faster the faucet features will corrode and need to be replaced. Prolong the lifespan of your faucet and keep it from getting corroded by getting that leaky faucet fixed.

The leak won’t go away on its own – it will only get worse

Leaky faucets aren't going to correct themselves, and they'll just get worse over time. Instead of listening to that annoying drip, call a plumber for a repair before you have an emergency on your hand. Not only will your ambiance be more relaxing without the constant dripping sound – you’ll prevent costly repairs and expenses in the future.
