Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most frequent calls we take for plumbing services in Louisville during the year is leak detection and repair. With the variety of different leak and clog-related problems that can take place in your home, prevention goes a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are a host of clues that may mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you take care of the issue before it causes pricey water damage:
- A higher water bill than usual could indicate a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and consistently are a sign of issues.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water can be signs of larger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls may point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation may mean you have a leak.
