Leaky Pipes, Faucets, & Fixtures
Ever been kept up late at night from the drip-drop of a leaky faucet? Leaky pipes, dripping faucets, and seeping fixtures are more than just annoying, they can cause a lot of damage if left to let drip. They can waste water, leading to higher utility bills and eat away at or corrode the surface they drip on.
Maybe your leak isn’t in a faucet but from a leaky pipe. A leaky pipe can cause extensive damage in the blink of an eye. If a pipe is leaking onto your floor, it’s very likely that it will warp and damage your flooring. If the leak is on an upper floor, it can soak through the ceiling and damage that as well. Any furniture or possessions that are in the affected room can be destroyed by water damage.
The cost of fixing a leak is remarkably less than the cost it would take to replace the walls, flooring and furniture in your home. If you suspect a leak, it’s important to call a plumber as soon as possible. What about catching a leak before it starts? There are a few warning signs that may alert you to an impending leak:
- Water spots on ceilings
- Utility bills that are higher than usual
- Hearing a banging noise when pipes are turned off and on
- Lower than usual water pressure
- Freezing temperatures
