3 Signs Your Plumbing Needs Immediate Repair

Your plumbing system is vital to your everyday life. From getting a glass of clean drinking water to washing yourself, clothes, food, and more. It’s a hassle when something goes wrong with your plumbing; from a leaky faucet to a burst pipe, fixing your plumbing takes a lot of time and effort. But, what signs of needing plumbing work can you put off, and what needs to be dealt with immediately? We break down when you need immediate repair for your plumbing in this blog.

Mold & Mildew

Have you ever smelled something musty or earthy inside of your home? There’s a chance that you may have mold and mildew growing within your home. Mold grows in dark, damp, and warm spaces and tends to start where you can’t see. If you find mold, there’s a chance you may have a plumbing leak, which can lead to breaking down your home’s pipes and foundation.

Low Water Pressure

Have you ever turned on a tap only to be met with a little stream of trickling water or, even worse, none? If you’re finding that your plumbing has low or no water pressure, it could be a sign of a clog or leaking pipe. This is an issue that should be dealt with immediately because if left alone, it could worsen, leading to a more expensive repair if a pipe bursts.

Expensive Water Bill

Have you noticed a large spike in your monthly water bill? A more expensive bill may be a great indicator that something is up with your plumbing. If you notice a large increase in the amount owed on a water bill call a plumber to inspect your plumbing to ensure everything is running properly.
