From leaky pipes to drain inspections, and preventative maintenance, there are many reasons to hire a plumber. A professional plumber knows the ins and outs of your home’s plumbing system. They can ensure installations and repairs are done properly, so you know they’ll last and your home is protected from potential water damage.
The plumbers at Resilient Plumbing and Heating in Vancouver offer some ways to know when you should hire a plumber.
If you suspect leaking plumbing in your home, contact a plumber immediately. Leaky pipes can lead to more serious water damage to many components in your home. This, in turn, can cause bigger issues like mold and rotting wood – not to mention a massive repair bill. There are signs you might have a leaky pipe. Water stains on the walls or ceiling, mildew, mould, decreased water pressure, and even a musty smell in a room can all indicate a leak. If you see water is leaking or suspect you might have a leak, contact a plumber right away!
Upgrading your plumbing
As your home gets older, the plumbing system ages too. Your pipes may begin to corrode, leading to discoloured water, bad smells, and poor temperature regulation. It can also make your pipes more prone to leaks, as they become weaker with time. Going outside the home, old pipes may affect the sewer system too. If you’re noticing something wrong with your pipes, or funky-smelling water, it may be a good time to hire a plumber.
Clearing a blockage
Clogs in the plumbing are no joke. While DIY clog clearing techniques might help temporarily, it’s not a permanent fix to the problem. Plus, chemical drain cleaners can be really hard on your pipes. It’s not recommended you use them. Whether it be a blocked-up kitchen sink, a garburator malfunction, or an issue with the sewer system, a plumber can fix the problem. A plumber can insert a camera down the drain to find the source of the problem, then use the proper tools to clear the blockage without damaging the pipes.
One way to avoid blockages, leaky pipes, and find out if your plumbing is past its prime is to hire a plumber for regular maintenance. Not only can it prevent potential problems from occurring, but it ensures that your pipes are in good shape. Hire a plumber for general inspections and maintenance, or at the first sign something minor might be wrong. Keeping up with the minor repairs will prevent significant repairs or replacements from happening.
