A few months ago, just as winter was setting in I had the worst experience of my life. All of a sudden, I was sitting at my kitchen table, when a drop of water just leaked out of the wall in front of me.
At first, I thought I wasn’t seeing right, but then another drop followed. I was panicked because I didn’t know what to do, I was quite new in Dublin and I didn’t have many friends over there. To be honest, that was the only time I regretted deeply that I didn’t have the Yellow Pages to quickly search for some emergency plumbers in Dublin. I turned on my laptop and after a few minutes I was already calling the first team of plumbers I could find.
During my neurotic search the leak was getting bolder and bolder spilling all over my freshly painted walls, making me even more nervous than before. After a little while (during which I was trying to stop de leaking myself), the leak detection professionals came in. obviously, there wasn’t necessary to check where the leak was coming from, because it was already visible.
Anyway, needless to say, I am more than grateful they exist because if they wouldn’t have come, my house would be a total mess. I would have had to move out and look for another flat that would have probably cost me another fortune.
Because I live in an old apartment building I now have the leak detection guys on speed dial, just in case I spot a moist dot on my walls.
Judging my experience, I believe you should do that too.
