What’s Going on With Your Leaky Pipes?

Leaky pipes are synonymous with being a homeowner. Seriously, if customers weren’t constantly getting leaks in their homes, then we wouldn’t be in business for this long. It’s just a natural part of homeownership, and it’s also something that can get a bit tricky when you try to fix a leaking pipe on your own.

Sure, a valve or PVC pipe might be loose and you can twist it to ensure the leak stops, but that’s a rare type of leak. Most leaks come from corroded pipes, frozen and thawed pipes, or even pipes that have been broken or moved due to issues like settling. In these cases, you’re going to have some trouble if you try to do this work on your own.

Instead, trust a professional for your plumbing services in Des Moines, IA. Our team can replace your old pipes, fix existing leaks, and ensure that no ill effects come from the leaking water.

Plumbing Leaks Can Bring Mold

One of the worst things that customers might not realize about a plumbing leak is the effect afterward. Plumbing pipes drip water when they leak, and water can go into the dark crevices of your home, especially in the basement, where there’s no sunlight or human activity. These kinds of places are exactly where mold can thrive.

Mold is not only bad for your personal health but for the structure of your home. Mold and moisture can eat away at your home’s wooden beams and foundation, weakening furniture and walls, until you’ve got a much larger problem on your hands.

By calling a pro, we can easily remove the plumbing problem so you don’t have to worry about mold.

Shorted Electrical Lines

You know what doesn’t mix well? Water and electricity. We’ve all heard horror stories about a pipe leak that caused an electrical fire, or a shorted circuit from water that leaked from a hole in the roof.

These kinds of situations can be scary, but they’re entirely preventable with reliable plumbing services that treat the problem at its source.

Poor Comfort and Happiness

Don’t forget that your family, guests, and friends are more likely to feel comfortable in your home if there’s nothing leaking and no water dripping anywhere. A plumber can go a long way toward making you feel more comfortable and happier in your own home.
