Protect Your Home with Leak Repairs and Early Detection

Buying a home places a big financial responsibility in your life, one that needs constant attention. Even if you purchase a brand new home, you'll still need to provide proper maintenance in order to ensure its structural integrity and habitability. One of the problems that might arise is a leak in the plumbing. If this happens, it is critical that you get repairs right away in order to protect your financial investment in the home and prevent thousands more in damages.

WHY SCHEDULE ANNUAL PLUMBING INSPECTIONS

Not only can early leak detection help to minimize the cost of repairs, but it can also prevent bigger issues such as damage to the structure of your home or personal possessions. Plus, fixing leaks right away can help to reduce the risk of mold or mildew growth. Moreover, a leak in the plumbing can increase the cost of your utility bills if you use public water. Why bother paying for water that you aren't actually using?

WHAT TYPES OF LEAKS SHOULD YOU LOOK OUT FOR?

No matter where the leak is, you should have it repaired as soon as possible. Some leaks are easy to see, such as dripping faucets or leaky water heater. Other types of seepage are hidden and you can't see easily, including leaks in the pipes found behind the walls or beneath the floors. Fortunately, some leaks can be heard, such as toilets that won't stop running and burst pipes, helping you to find them earlier.

WHAT ARE EARLY SIGNS OF LEAKS? 

If you notice any of the following signs, call a plumber for an evaluation right away:

  • Wet spots on the floors, walls, or ceilings
  • Larger than usual bills for your water usage
  • Problems with water flow (too slow orsporadic)
  • Strange noises coming from faucets and fixtures

WHAT IF LEAKS ARE HIDDEN? 

Even if the leak is hidden somewhere that you can't see it, an experienced plumber has specialized tools that can be used to identify its location. If you suspect that a leak in your pipes is causing problems, call in a professional to diagnose and repair the problem before it lowers the value of your home.
