A dripping tap may seem like a minor inconvenience, although it may be small and with a drip from your tap every few seconds you might think you could get away with it, but what are you really creating risk if the problem continues to occur?
Health and Structural Damage
In many cases, the leak of a dripping tap may not cause direct hazard to you or your family but the mould, stagnant water and material damage caused by the leak will begin to have hazardous properties. These problems only worsen the situation when left ignored; causing harmful illness or costly damage can be prevented by spotting a dripping garden tap or bathroom tap early.
Seeking an experienced professional to repair your leaking taps and ensure they will evaluate the result of the dripping tap, whether they search for mould, material damage or pools of stagnant water attracting undesirable insects and bacteria. Early notice is crucial.
