Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

June 04, 2016

A plumbing repair is never wanted and may end up being expensive, but it’s important to make sure all plumbing leaks are repaired as soon as possible. Some homeowners in Edmonton might think, “Oh, it’s just a minor water spot, it’s nothing.” But truthfully water damage that you notice is generally just the tip of the iceberg.

Wall Damage

The tubes for your plumbing system are installed behind your walls so any leaks, or worse, a total pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or ruin it completely. If you see any wet spots or suspect a leak, call Rob's Albertan Service Experts right away to evaluate the situation and we can provide your plumbing repair to avoid any additional damage.

Fixture Damage

While you may think of plumbing issues as being merely in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality issues may actually harm your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A decayed gasket could become lodged in the plumbing system or decrease your water pressure. If not repaired quickly and correctly, you might end up needing to purchase a new fixture, which could cost between $100 and $500 or more.

Flooring Damage

Similar to the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause harm to your floors. Gravity pulls water to flow downhill which can create leaks under your floors. Distorted and discolored floorboards and detached tiles are evidence that you may need a plumbing repair. The sooner you call an expert plumber, the better possibility you have of not having to fix all the flooring, so call Rob's Albertan Service Experts as soon as you see any indications of damage.

Mold Issues

Under certain circumstances, moisture in the walls and floors may result in mold growth, so if you see any signs that you might need plumbing repair, call immediately because you may not just need a plumbing expert – you may also require the service of a mold remediation company to remove mold and pieces of your wall or floors. Mold can cause serious health issues so don’t put off dealing with a moisture issue.

Cost of Wasting Water

In addition to the destruction leaks can cause in your home, it may also end up costing you more on your water bill. Leaks are exactly what they sound like – leaking water – so they increase your water usage and may earn you a large bill. If your water bill is higher than usual, be sure to call your Edmonton Rob's Albertan Service Experts in case you are in need of a plumbing repair.

Don’t ignore leaks hoping they will disappear; they don’t repair themselves. Even something that seems like a little plumbing repair issue can turn into a major problem if not repaired right away. Call Rob's Albertan Service Experts today for emergency plumbing repair or standard plumbing maintenance.
