What to Do About Water Leak in Your Home

While water damage is not common, scheduling regular maintenance inspections with a reputable plumbing service is crucial. Mr. Rooter Plumbing leverages innovative equipment to detect even minor leaks that can grow, causing irreversible damage like rotting wood and structural deterioration. Delaying water leak repair for over 24 hours also leaves you susceptible to mold growth and subsequent health complications. Luckily, routine inspections by our professional plumber ensure you detect and address trivial issues before they wreak havoc in your home.

Signs to Look Out for

Many property owners make the common mistake of delaying maintenance and only seek the services of a plumber when it is too late. Please don’t wait for a small leak to turn into a flooded basement or reduce water pressure on all your faucets. Familiarize yourself with the common signs that show the need for water leak repair so that you can prevent costly repairs.

The common signs you should look out for include unexplainable spikes in your water bill, constantly running water heater, mold growth, and cracks in plaster or paint. If you see any of these signs, it may be time to call an experienced plumber for professional help. We leverage extensive industry knowledge and expertise to ensure we provide top-notch water leak repair and restoration.

Professional Leak Detection

Property owners often take on plumbing maintenance without the proper tools or strategies to locate and repair leaks to save money. DIY projects may seem cost-effective, but the slightest miscalculation can cost you thousands of dollars in bills and repairs annually. Hiring a professional water leak repair service allows you to leverage state-of-the-art equipment to enhance efficiency in detecting and repairing leaks.

Some strategies we use in the water leak repair process include camera inspections, hydrostatic pressure tests, and the use of acoustic devices. Each technique is suited for specific signs of a leak, and a plumber has the skills to trace the leak up to the source. The process is not always straightforward, and sometimes complex repairs are needed, which should be conducted by an expert to mitigate further damage.

What to Do Once a Leak is Detected

Plumbing leaks come in every form and size, making every case unique. Misdiagnosis is not an option when dealing with potential water damage, hence the need to onboard a well-trained plumber to inspect and recommend repairs. If the structural integrity of your home is compromised and you require slab leak repair, the process is invasive and requires modern tools and techniques.

A leak shouldn’t be taken lightly, and we can help you protect your loved ones from the harmful effects of plumbing leaks. Even if you are considering turning repairs into a DIY project, it is advisable to consult a trusted plumbing service to ensure you steer clear of rookie mistakes that can cause severe damage. Contact us at Mr. Rooter Plumbing and schedule an appointment with our highly trained and equipped plumber. We guarantee quality water leak repair services at competitive market rates.
