Letting any of these problems go can result in costly damages. Burst pipes can be the result of clogs, deterioration or even shifting soil. The goal is to discontinue free flow of water before there is significant water damage to your home. Leaky fixtures can be the result of damaged seals, scale buildup or simply deterioration. When fixtures leak, they not only raise your water bill, but also cause damage to surrounding areas. If the clog in a blocked drain or toilet can’t easily be dislodged by a plunger, it’s important to call a professional so additional damage to your pipes doesn’t occur.
What can you do to help?
- If you have a leak, turn off the main water valve to help stop the flow of water to your plumbing system. Water damage can start on the second floor of a home and seep into the floor and walls below causing the homeowner to have to replace pipes, floors, and walls.
- Dry standing water before it causes damage to walls and flooring.
- Serious mold growth risks that can be detrimental to your health. Keep areas dry to prevent mold growth.
Not only can plumbing emergencies be costly, you can also sustain damage to items such as home furnishings or electronics. This is why it’s very important to seek professional help at the first sign of a plumbing emergency.
