Even a New Home Can Have Leaks. Here are Two Signs Yours Might

new home leaks

There is something special about owning your very own home; that is, until you find out you need plumbing services to take care of a leaky faucet, toilet, water pipe or septic tank. Thankfully, you can save a lot of time and money by catching problems early on. Here are two warning signs revealing your new home may have one or more leaks.

Sign #1: Plumbing Issues with Low Water Pressure

There are many reasons you may have low water pressure. Problems with the water shut-off valve on the water heater or a clogged faucet can lower pressure in many instances. However, if you have low water pressure throughout your home, chances are you have a leak on your hands and it’s time to get the professionals on the scene as quickly as possible.

Sign #2: Mildew and Mold

Mildew and mold will wreak havoc on your home. They can ruin the floor, walls, roof or even the home’s foundation. What’s more, many people and pets are allergic to mildew and mold. Common mold allergy symptoms include sneezing, congestion, difficulty breathing and scaly skin.

Mildew and mold need humidity to grow. One great source of water for these harmful fungi is water leaking into the home. If you’re running a dehumidifier even when it’s not humid but you still have mildew and mold problems, call in a plumber for expert leak detection services.

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
