Common Problems That Can Be Addressed By Waterproofing Solutions and Services

on October 16, 2014

Water ingress problems, such as leakage and dampness, not only damage your house, but also affect its market value. So, if you are dealing with such problems, call up a waterproofing expert ASAP.

But before that, you must:

Waterproofing

    • Check the pressure relief valve on your hot water tank

That’s because if the valve is plumed directly into a drain, you may not come to know of the leakage, unless you take a closer look.

    • Inspect the hose bibs

If the hose bibs (or pipes that you may have hooked the hoses to) are emitting any kind of sound, which you may listen to with the help of a screwdriver, chances are that they are in need of repair.

    • Look into every nook and cranny

Right from your toilet to the line that runs from the meter to your house, anything could have caused the problem. If at all there is a hissing sound, it may help you identify the source.

You can also ask the waterproofing expert to carry out these inspections for you, and suggest the most suitable solution(s). But it is imperative that you waste no time, because water leakage may look harmless at first, but it can lead to bigger problems like:

  • Loss of lime salt
  • Wall buckling
  • Mould, mildew, and fungus
  • Structural damage
  • Respiratory ailments and/or allergies
