Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

June 04, 2016

A plumbing repair is never wanted and may end up being costly, but it’s crucial 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 actually water damage that you notice is normally just the tip of the iceberg.

Wall Damage

The tubes for your plumbing system are installed behind your walls so any leaks, or more serious, a complete pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or destroy it completely. If you see any water damage or think there could be a leak, call Rob's Albertan Service Experts immediately to assess the situation and we can provide your plumbing repair to avoid any additional damage.

Fixture Damage

Although 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 replace your fixture, which can cost between $100 and $500 or more.

Flooring Damage

Just like the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause damage to your floors. Gravity pulls water to flow downhill which can create leaks under your floors. Warped and discolored floorboards and loose 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 signs of damage.

Mold Issues

Under certain circumstances, moisture in the walls and floors may lead to mold growth, so if you see any signs that you might need plumbing repair, call immediately because you may require more than a plumbing expert – you may also require the service of a mold remediation professional 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

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

Don’t disregard leaks expecting 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 routine plumbing maintenance.
