A plumbing repair is always a pain and can end up being costly, but it’s crucial to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired right away. Some homeowners in Edmonton might think, “Oh, it’s just a little water spot, it’s fine.” But the truth is water damage that you notice is generally just the tip of the iceberg.
The pipes for your plumbing system run behind your walls so any leaks, or worse, a full pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or ruin it completely. If you see any water damage or suspect a leak, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible to evaluate the situation and we can conduct your plumbing repair to avoid any additional damage.
Though you may regard plumbing issues as being only in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality issues may actually damage your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A rotted gasket could become lodged in the plumbing system or lower your water pressure. If not resolved quickly and correctly, you could end up needing to invest in a new fixture, which may cost between $100 and $550 or more.
Same as the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause harm to your floors. Gravity drives water to roll downhill which can cause leaks under your floors. Distorted and discolored floorboards and loose tiles are signs that you may require a plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better possibility you have of not having to repair all the flooring, so call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as you see any indications of damage.
In specific situations, moisture in the walls and floors may lead to mold growth, so if you see any signs that you may need plumbing repair, call as soon as possible because you may require more than a plumbing expert – you may also need the service of a mold remediation business to remove mold and pieces of your wall or floors. Mold can produce serious health issues so don’t wait around with a moisture issue.
Cost of Wasting Water
Besides the harm leaks can cause in your home, it will also end up increasing your water bill. Leaks are precisely what they sound like – leaking water – so they increase your water usage and may rack up a large bill. If your water bill is costing more than usual, be sure to call your Edmonton Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in case you require a plumbing repair.
Don’t ignore leaks thinking they will disappear; they don’t resolve themselves. Even something that seems like a little plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not repaired right away. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning today for emergency plumbing repair or routine plumbing maintenance.
