Why You Should Repair Plumbing Leaks Immediately

A plumbing repair is always a pain 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 Columbus might think, “Oh, it’s just a little water spot, it’s fine.” But truthfully water damage that you notice is usually just the tip of the iceberg.  

Wall Damage

The tubes for your plumbing system live behind your walls so any leaks, or more severe, a total pipe burst, can moisten the drywall or destroy it entirely. If you see any water damage or feel there’s a leak, call Stevenson Service Experts immediately to analyze the situation and we can provide your plumbing repair to avoid any further damage.  

Fixture Damage

Although you may consider plumbing issues as being just in your drains and pipes, leaks and water quality troubles may actually harm your fixtures, including faucets and showerheads. A decayed gasket could become stuck in the plumbing pipes or lower your water pressure. If not resolved quickly and correctly, you may end up needing to replace your fixture, which may cost between $100 and $500 or more. 

Flooring Damage

Similar to the walls, a plumbing complication can also cause damage to your floors. Gravity drives water to run downhill which can cause leaks under your floors. Buckled and discolored floorboards and unsecured tiles are indications that you may be in need of plumbing repair. The earlier you call an expert plumber, the better possibility you have of not having to replace all the flooring, so call Stevenson Service Experts as soon as you see any indications of damage. 

Mold Issues

Under certain circumstances, moisture in the walls and floors may cause mold growth, so if you see any indications that you might need plumbing repair, call immediately because you may require more than a plumbing expert – you may also need the service of a mold remediation professional to remove mold and sections of your wall or floors. Mold can cause serious health issues so don’t delay calling an expert when you have a moisture issue.  

Cost of Wasting Water

On top of the harm leaks can cause in your home, it could also end up increasing your water bill. Leaks are exactly what they sound like – leaking water – so they increase your water usage and may cause a large bill. If your water bill is higher than usual, make sure you call your Columbus Stevenson Service Experts in case you need a plumbing repair. 

Don’t fail to address leaks thinking 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 resolved right away. Call Stevenson Service Experts today for emergency plumbing repair or annual plumbing maintenance.
