Signs Of Leaking Pipes
A leaking pipe may go unnoticed for weeks, slowly causing pipe and fixture corrosion. Routine plumbing maintenance is the best way to prevent and detect leaks, but being aware of the warning signs will help protect your plumbing and your home.
Some signs of a leak are more obvious, like a raise in your water bill or areas of your home that are constantly moist or soggy. Underground leaks are hard to detect, but some of the most recognizable signs include your flooring being wet or warm in one area or a mildew smell in the room. You may also hear running water when no one is using it. Make sure all the faucets are closed and listen closely. The sound of running water indicates a leak within your walls.
If you notice any of these signs around your home, the experienced technicians at USA Pipe Repair can perform a complete inspection to determine the exact location of your leak and offer remedies that will stop the problem immediately.
Damage Caused By Leaking Pipes
The damage caused by leaking pipes isn’t just found on your monthly utility bill. Even small amounts of leaking water can wreak havoc on your home. Leaking pipes can create:
Flooring Damage: If the pipes beneath your flooring begin to leak, the trapped water will cause mildew growth and damage or destroy your flooring. If your flooring is damp in one area or becomes spongy, a leak may be the cause.
Mold Issues: Mildew and mold thrive in moist environments. Even small leaks can promote growth of mold and mildew, putting your family’s health in jeopardy.
Wall Damage: A large portion of a home’s plumbing is hidden behind the walls. A leaking pipe can damage drywall and weaken the structure.
Wasted Water: Leaving leaks unrepaired allows for ongoing water waste. While a slow drip doesn’t seem significant, just one faucet dripping can add up over time.
The Solution To Leaking Pipes
The professional team at USA Pipe Repair will conduct a video pipe inspection to help determine where the leak is located. Once our technicians have determined the location and size of the leak, we’ll present possible solutions to you.
Some of the most common leaking pipe repair options include pipe lining and trenchless pipe bursting. Pipe lining is a minimally invasive way to repair your current pipes. The pipe liner is inserted into your pipes and an epoxy resin material is used to coat the inner walls of your plumbing. The resin hardens and seals any leaks or cracks.
Pipe bursting is designed for large leaks or collapsed pipes. The process uses the current sewer line as a guide and lays a new pipe while simultaneously bursting the old pipe and pushing the pieces into the surrounding soil.
No matter the size of your leak, USA Pipe Repair has the advanced equipment and experience to handle the job. Call our team today to repair your leaking pipes or handle any of your other plumbing problems.
