Welcome to TM Hughes & Son Gas Services Ltd. We provide Leak Detection services in and around Romford.
Leak Detection is a proactive measure against the unseen damage caused by water leaks.
What Is Leak Detection?
Leak detection identifies and locates leaks in plumbing and waste systems.
This process is essential in residential and commercial settings to prevent water waste, damage to fixtures and fittings, structural damage, and potential health risks associated with unchecked leaks.
Utilising a range of techniques and equipment, our professionals will pinpoint the exact location of a leak without requiring invasive measures.
Where Can Leaks Occur?
Leaks in homes can occur in various locations, each presenting unique challenges. Leaks are often hidden and not easily detected.
Common areas include pipes in walls and under floors and external water pipes. The plumbing is under sinks, within toilets, and at pipe joints, where wear and damage can lead to leakage.
Beyond plumbing, homes can experience leaks in roofs and ceilings, especially after heavy rainfall, as well as in basements and foundations due to cracks and poor drainage.
What Damage Can Leaks Cause?
Water leaks can cause significant damage to various parts of a home, including floors, walls, furniture, fixtures, and fittings:
Water leaks can lead to the warping or swelling of hardwood floors, causing them to lift or buckle. In the case of carpets, prolonged exposure to water can result in mould and mildew growth, creating health hazards and an unpleasant, musty smell.
Tiles may also become loose due to the deterioration of the grout or adhesive beneath them.
Leaks will damage paint and wallpaper. In the case of drywall, water exposure can lead to swelling, discolouration, and eventual disintegration.
Over time, chronic dampness in walls can also foster the growth of mould, which can be harmful to health and difficult to eradicate.
Electrical fixtures are particularly vulnerable to water leaks and can short-circuit, posing a fire hazard.
Leaks from the upper floors can damage the ceilings below. Signs of ceiling damage include staining, bubbling, and, in severe cases, collapse.
