Water leaks can be detrimental to any business site no matter how big or small they are. In some cases, they can also temporally close down a business until the problem is fixed.
Water leaks are not immediately noticeable, which is what makes them difficult to detect and discover sooner.
Unfortunately, in most cases, the problem is only detected when the water leak has worsened.
At Avon Water services, we speak to many commercial site owners who experience water leaks on their premises, however, they have no indication to suggest that water leak could be a potential problem.
So, to address this issue, we’ve put together a few indicators to suggest you may have a water leak problem!
Inconsistent water bill
Regardless of the industry you are in, it is important to keep a record of all outgoings in order to notice profitability in the business.
Most business sites would have a water meter installed, so a sudden increase in water bills can suggest there may be a leak somewhere. In order to eliminate general usage, you can take an initial meter reading and use the water as usual, and then do the same the following month to notice the difference.
This process can also help professionals detect the root of the leak.
Some of the most obvious signs of water damage are:
- Wet patches on walls
- Wall discoloration
- Damp areas
- Strange odour
Strange smells and wet patches are the most common water leak detectors. In some cases, the extent of the smell can make workplaces inhospitable. This can then cause a negative impact not only on the business but also on the health of the employees.
You may also notice warped flooring, loose doors and windows. All of these would suggest there is a water leak that needs immediate attention from professionals. At Avon Water services, we offer emergency call outs, where we can come and assess the situation before it gets worse!
Occasionally, water leaks can be heard as water drips through the plumbing system. Low water pressure can also create strange sounds that can be heard through the walls or ceilings.
At Avon Water services, we understand our clients and customers, and how water leaks can cause a negative impact on their daily lives and businesses. Understanding their needs, we are able to work quickly and efficiently to ensure the water leak is fixed to a high standard so that people can return to their lives and businesses can resume as normal.
Using specialist electronic devices we are able to narrow down the leak. This saves on unnecessary digging costs and causes minimal disruption to the area.
