Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

A plumbing repair is never wanted and could end up being costly, but it’s critical to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired immediately. Some homeowners in Columbus might think, “Oh, it’s just a little water spot, it’s fine.” But the truth is water damage you can see is normally just the tip of the iceberg.

Wall Damage

The pipes for your plumbing system are installed behind your walls so any leaks, or more severe, a total pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or wreck it completely. If you see any moist spots or feel there’s a leak, call Stevenson Service Experts as soon as possible to assess the situation and we can perform your plumbing repair to avoid any more damage.

Fixture Damage

Though you may regard plumbing issues as being exclusively in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality troubles may actually ruin your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A deteriorated gasket could become stuck in the plumbing pipes or reduce your water pressure. If not resolved quickly and correctly, you may end up needing to replace your fixture, which could cost between $150 and $500 or more.

Flooring Damage

Just like the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause harm to your floors. Gravity drives water to run downhill which can create leaks under your floors. Distorted and discolored floorboards and detached tiles are indications that you may require a plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better likelihood you have of not having to repair all the flooring, so call Stevenson Service Experts as soon as you see any indications of damage.

Mold Issues

In certain situations, moisture in the walls and floors may cause mold growth, so if you see any indications that you might need plumbing repair, call right away because you may not just need a plumbing expert – you may also require the service of a mold remediation business to remove mold and parts of your wall or floors. Mold can cause severe 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 could also end up increasing your water bill. Leaks are exactly what they sound like – leaking water – so they increase your water usage and may cause a large bill. If your water bill is costing more than usual, go ahead and call your Columbus Stevenson Service Experts in case you are in need of a plumbing repair.

Don’t disregard leaks thinking they will disappear; they don’t resolve themselves. Even something that seems like a minor plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not taken care of right away. Call Stevenson Service Experts today for emergency plumbing repair or annual plumbing maintenance.
