Signs You Need Leak Repair
Having a plumbing leak is something a home owner never wants to deal with. Often times, a leak in your pipes is hard to pinpoint and isn't very obvious until it becomes a big problem. At Plumbing Right, we have 3 signs to look for in order to avoid this potential nightmare scenario.
Musty or Mildew Smell -
If you notice and odor that smells like mildew it could be that over time water has accumulated in a certain area and caused mold or mildew to grow. Contact our 24/7 plumbing as soon as you notice this smell as it can be detrimental to you and your households health.
Stains Appear on the Ceiling -
if you notice that your ceiling is developing stains or that your floor seems to be warping in certain areas, it's possible that you have a leak in your piping and are in need of repair. Don't sit on this situation as the longer you wait the more damage that can possibly happen to your home.
Reduced Water Pressure -
When the water pressure seems to getting worse and worse, it could be that your home's piping has a leak somewhere and is unable to provide sufficient water pressure to your home.
