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

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

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.

customer review

“Senior technician, Joe Anderson, made plumbing repairs to an upstairs bathtub to seal leaks from flooding through kitchen ceiling downstairs. This has been an ongoing serious daily problem in this apartment since April 2015. Mr. Anderson was the first person to have a camera system with him to assess areas where water was accessing kitchen ceiling. He explained in detail what he did and what he found wrong. Water had been flowing from next door apartment whenever they used their shower for over a year now. Mr. Anderson stated he needed to get permission from apartment management office in order to proceed to correct issues in next door apartment. Management has not allowed that access yet. He also noted that a single shower curtain in the apartment next door was on the outside of that tub and felt that could be creating some of the flooding issues. Thank you Mr. Anderson for being my angel and making these repairs.” –- Lyda G.
