Leak Detection And Water Damage Luton


If your property in Luton has recently uncovered water damage, it may be time for you to seek out the expert financial building advice we have to offer here at Apex. Water damage is one of the most common reasons for homeowners to make a claim against their insurance policy, so it’s essential that damaged, frozen, burst or cracked pipes are identified and repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage from occurring.

Homeowners are often oblivious to water damage due to the fact that water pipe leaks are concealed and tend to result in little or no evidence for some time. Once evidence of water damage is uncovered, it’s essential that a thorough investigation is carried out to identify the cause and prevent any further damage from occurring. Homeowners can go as long as weeks, months or even years without knowing about damaged pipes.

There are a number of things to look out for should you be concerned about the prospect of water damage in your Luton-based property. The first thing to check is any exposed pipe work that might have been damaged, as well as showers and radiators which tend to be major culprits of water damage. Damp and minor floods are often a sign that water damage has occurred somewhere in the property, though it can be difficult to identify the cause without a detailed investigation.

Some of the areas that are susceptible to water damage include walls, floors, ceilings and joists. Flooring can suffer from extensive water damage, with wooden floorboards susceptible to damp and gradual deterioration. Water can remain dormant at the surface of a property for some time without being identified, as water always needs somewhere to go once it has escaped. It is quite common for homeowners to be unaware of dormant water until damp and flooding occurs.

Leaking showers are a common sign of water damage, often leading to damaged walls and ceilings. Holes can appear in ceilings where water has looked to reach the surface of the property, whilst the gradual drip can also cause further damage to floors and carpets. The work that is required to fix a ceiling once it has been damaged is often dependant on the type of ceiling, from plasterboard and lathe to suspended ceilings.
