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