It is no secret that discovering a leak in your home is no fun at all, and it can be impossible to tell when a leak might occur. However, there are some precautions you can take when you discover a leak to minimize the damages, and it is important to fix a leak issue quickly. Let us help you with our plumbing services.
Finding the Water
The first precautionary measure you can take when you first find the leak is to mark the spot where you see it, so you can show the plumber when he arrives at your home.
Then, you need to turn off the water to stop any additional water from entering your home. Next, you will need to clean up as much of the water as you can because water can easily damage the floors, ceiling, walls or furnishings in your home.
Contact the Plumber
The next step is to immediately contact a professional plumber for help. Only a professional plumber can determine the source of the problem. It can be tricky to find a busted pipe or a leaky pipe if it is located behind a wall, so this job is best left to those who know exactly what to look for.
While you might be tempted to try to identify the source of the leak on your own, it is a better idea to wait for us to arrive. You might wind up causing more damage to your home than the leak did. We will work hard to identify the problem quickly, so we can get it resolved as fast as possible.
The Importance of Resolving the Issue
It is very important that you get the leak fixed as it will not fix itself. If you wait, you take the chance of the water running into your basement, behind your walls or under your home’s foundation. This is bad for two reasons.
The first problem is that water can cause mold, which can be hard and expensive to remove. The second problem is that water can damage your home’s structure when it soaks through the foundation, walls and beams. It can be very costly to have to build new walls or fix a foundation.
We can help you fix the leak quickly, so you can move on with your life. A leak doesn’t have to create bigger problems, if you contact us as soon as you see a problem.
