Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most common calls we take for plumbing services in Edmonton throughout the year is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related issues that can happen 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 congnizent of that could help you handle the issue before it ends up as pricey water damage:
- A higher water bill than typical could indicate a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and consistently are a sign of issues.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water may be signs of bigger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls may point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation can mean you have a leak.
