Plumbing Maintenance and Repair

Prevention Tips

No one wants to discover a leak or water damage in their home. The two most common causes of water damage in a home are appliance failure and faulty plumbing systems. To prevent potential costly water damage, check key several areas in your home periodically. The lifespan of a washing machine, sump pump and water heater varies, depending on the manufacturer and frequency of use.

If you see water dripping or forming a puddle near your water heater, sump pump, plumbing fixture or appliance, contact a licensed plumber immediately.

Many homeowners hire a handyman or fix-it guy to make simple repairs in their home. Just because you have the tools doesn’t qualify you to perform plumbing repairs. What seems like a small project can quickly escalate into a bathroom disaster.
