Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most received calls we receive for plumbing services in Belleville during the year is leak detection and repair. With such a variety of different leak and clog-related concerns that can develop in your home, preventative maintenance can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are a host of clues that may mean a plumbing leak, and being aware of that could help you handle the concern before it causes expensive water damage:
- A higher water bill than normal could uncover a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and routinely are a sign of concern.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water could be signs of bigger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls can point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation may mean you have a leak.
