Small Drips Add to Big Damage

Hundreds of feet of pipe circulate water throughout your home. It is inevitable that, in time, something will fail. It may be a pipe that cracks, a joint that begins leaking, an appliance hose that bursts or an overflowing toilet or tub. No matter the cause, water damage can cause significant, expensive damage to any building.

The aftermath of a severe plumbing problem isn't pretty – or cheap to repair. Small things like drips, leaks or even clogs can start off small but grow to become large sources of water damage. Leaks can occur in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms – basically anywhere where your water lines run. It may be difficult to detect a problem when a leak is hidden in a wall or ceiling.  A slow leak can go undetected for months or even years. Even if you can't see the leak, you can be sure that the water is slowly causing damage that you will have to deal with sooner or later.

It's better to be on top of potential plumbing problems. By the time a long-term water problem is noticed, the damage is often extensive. Inspect areas around windows and appliances for signs of water or moisture. Regularly check under your sinks, around your water heater, and throughout your basement. In the living areas, a damp carpet, water stains, or mildew smells may indicate a problem.

Fixing a plumbing problem after water damage occurs is not the end of the story. Extensively damaged areas may require drying of the area, and disinfecting and deodorizing to remove odor and subsequent mold growth. If there is structural damage, that will require repair as well.

If you discover drips, dampness or water appearing where it is not supposed to be, don't wait! Fix the problem yourself if you can, or call a professional plumber.

Depending on the nature of the problem, repairs may even be covered by your homeowners' insurance!
