Plumbing leaks are common occurrences that are usually straight forward fixes, especially if you catch them early. Depending on the location and type of leak, an experienced plumber can fix a plumbing leak with little to no inconvenience within your home. Even if you’re just experiencing a little drop of water here and there, don’t just put a bucket under it and wait for it to get worse–the leak is guaranteed to get worse! Plumbing leaks can cause damage and mold to grow on your walls and floors, and if it’s a hidden leak, the damage will be twice as bad.
Common Plumbing Leaks
Minor leaks can cause more than mold growth and wood damage–they can also rust plumbing fixtures, increase water and utility bills, and compromise your entire plumbing system! The most common household plumbing leaks include:
- Leaking Faucets
- Running Toilets
- Leaking Toilets
- Tub and Shower Leaks
- Leaking Shower Door Frames
- Drain Leaks
The more serious, intense plumbing leaks include cracked pipes, damaged water lines, damaged sewer lines, and leaking water heaters. If you are experiencing any of these serious plumbing leaks, call a plumber right away. These types of leaks constitute a plumbing emergency and should be addressed immediately.
Plumbing Leak Repair Can Save Your Time and Money
We understand that fixing a leak may seem like a hassle, but it really matters in the long run! We have met folks who have dismissed a shower leak, only to have their bathroom floors begin to lift from the subfloor. We have also helped folks who ignored a kitchen sink leak, which resulted in mold development underneath the sink resulting in the need to replace the cabinetry beneath the sink. These are a couple examples of what can happen when plumbing leaks occur. Water has the potential to cause extreme deterioration, which is why the tiniest of leaks has the potential to produce thousands of dollars in damage.
