Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most received calls we get for plumbing services in Raleigh year round is leak detection and repair. With the variety of different leak and clog-related concerns that can happen in your home, preventative maintenance can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that may mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you take care of the concern before it causes pricey water damage:
- A higher water bill than usual could uncover a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and constantly are a sign of trouble.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water may be signs of larger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls could point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation may mean you have a leak.
