Take Care Of Plumbing Leaks…Before They Really Cost You
Leaky fixtures and pipes do more than just cost you money by wasting water. The moist environment they provide foster growth of mold and mildew.
Drywall damage can happen fairly quickly as a result of even a small leak, and persistent leaks can cause wood rot and structural damage. Neglecting a leak can turn an inexpensive repair job into major construction.
If you suspect a leak, check the grouted areas as well as the washer. Look, or rather feel, underneath the sink. If the pipes are damp because of a minor leak from a pipe joint, the water will drip from the bottom to whatever surface is underneath.
Many leak repairs are well within the competence of an experienced home handyman, but some are not. If the repair of any plumbing leaks leave you feeling unsure of your knowledge or skill level, the trained professionals at Sobieski Services can manage things quickly and economically.
