What are some of the consequences of delaying plumbing repairs?
When plumbing repairs are delayed, you can actually incur more costs that previously estimated due to leaks continuing to compromise the integrity of your plumbing system. There's also the fact that delays can continue to cause you to rack up your utility bill.
If plumbing repairs are ignored for too long, the consequences can grow more serious. If a leak goes on too long unrepaired, it could cause mold or mildew to form which can cause serious respiratory issues if left untreated...not to mention give you another bill to worry about. If sewer line issues go ignored, sewer gas can begin to seep into your home or sewage can back into your home which presents a new form of bacteria in your home. That being said, it's never a good idea to ignore plumbing issues that need to be repaired due to the impact that it can have not just on your wallet, but on your health too.
