How dangerous are under sink leaks?
Under sink leaks can do a lot of damage and the origin of the leak makes no difference. Whether it’s your faucet, garbage disposal, water line or your drainpipe, accumulated water will lead to expensive repairs, potential for mold and in severe cases this can incite respiratory illness.
Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of an under sink leak isn’t the damage itself, but the fact that they can be so difficult to detect. In fact, sometimes major emergency leaks detected quickly can pose less of a long-term risk to homes than small undetected leaks that are left to seep in and cause permanent damage to your wooden cabinets.
Water left undetected, even in small amounts, can be a serious problem for any home, especially when you’re looking to sell and come across a tragic surprise. This is the reason why the under sink mat is becoming a fixture in so many households, apparent complexes and condominiums across the country. It’s a product which satisfies such a basic and powerful need; but you should always make sure to treat a purchase like this as an investment and order the highest quality under sink protector you can.
What makes an Xtreme Mat different from its competitors?
While there are a growing number of alternatives to the Xtreme Mat on the market, the sheer quality of a custom designed mat is what sets them apart.
Department stores and big box websites offer cheap, thin mats that you would line your upper cabinets with, NOT contain gallons of water leaking from your sink. And other knockoffs and lookalike mats weren’t built to last like the Xtreme Mat. This is why every Xtreme Mat comes with a lifetime warranty. This warranty covers against normal wear and tear and guarantees that the product will not break, tear, or deform under normal usage.
Where competitors might try to cut corners, we build our mats deep and with a ridge to keep water inside when it spills or that leak happens. Unlike many other dense and taught mats, the Xtreme Mat is sturdy and flexible allowing it to squeeze into your cabinet and install with ease. All Xtreme Mats materials are eco-friendly, non-toxic and VOC free too, so you can rest assured you and your family have a healthy mat in your kitchen or bath.
