A plumbing repair is never fun and may end up being expensive, but it’s important to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired immediately. Some homeowners in Canada might think, “Oh, it’s just a small water spot, it’s fine.” But the truth is water damage you can see is usually just the tip of the iceberg.
The pipes for your plumbing system run behind your walls so any leaks, or worse, a complete pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or ruin it altogether. If you see any wet spots or suspect a leak, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing right away to assess the situation and we can provide your plumbing repair to avoid any further damage.
Although you may think of plumbing issues as being exclusively in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality issues may actually damage your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A decayed gasket could become stuck in the plumbing pipes or lower your water pressure. If not taken care of quickly and correctly, you may end up needing to replace your fixture, which could cost between $100 and $500 or more.
Just like the walls, a plumbing issue can also cause damage to your floors. Gravity forces water to flow downhill which can cause leaks under your floors. Warped and discolored floorboards and loose tiles are signs that you may be in need of plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better chance you have of not having to repair all the flooring, so call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as you see any signs of damage.
Under certain circumstances, moisture in the walls and floors may lead to mold growth, so if you see any signs that you may need plumbing repair, call immediately because you may not just need a plumbing expert – you may also require the service of a mold remediation company to remove mold and pieces of your wall or floors. Mold can cause serious health issues so don’t wait around with a moisture issue.
On top of the damage leaks can cause in your home, it will also end up costing you more on your water bill. Leaks are just what they sound like – leaking water – so they increase your water usage and may rack up a large bill. If your water bill is higher than usual, make sure you call your Canada Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in case you are in need of a plumbing repair.
Don’t ignore leaks hoping they will go away; they don’t fix themselves. Even something that seems like a small plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not taken care of right away. Call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing today for emergency plumbing repair or routine plumbing maintenance.
