Why Would I Need Plumbing Services?

No hot water is only one of the many things that can go wrong with your plumbing at any moment. Why can’t you take care of it yourself? The answer is simple. First, you may not be able to pinpoint exactly what is wrong. Secondly, you may not be able to fix it properly or completely. This can be disastrous- a wrong repair can actually make a problem worse and end up costing you much more than the original problem would have. While we all would like a simply DIY fix, these following issues are best handled by professionals!

No Hot Water

This little problem can be caused by many things. One of the most obvious is that the pilot light in your hot water heater simply went out. Sounds pretty simple; however, the real question is why. A faulty pilot light can be very dangerous, putting you at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Smell of sulfur can indicate a gas leak in gas water heaters and are extremely dangerous. You need to call for plumbing services right away. Other causes include a faulty heating elements, sediment build up, and thermostat issues. All of these need to be handled by a professional to ensure the safety of you and  your family.

Flooding

It can start small- a strange sound in your walls when you are using the sink or  a small water stain on the wall. Even a small leak in a pipe can easily turn into a gushing stream that will flood your bedroom, kitchen, or other parts of your home in no time. If you suspect you may have a leak, call a professional right away. If you are caught off guard and find yourself ankle deep in water one morning, you need the help of an experienced professional to avoid permanent damage to your home.

Clogged Sinks

The most common reasons for a clogged sink are the misuse or lack of a garbage disposal, or too many cosmetics and hair going down the drain. The first instinct we have is to grab the Draino. While it can prove a good short-term solution, recurring clogged drains are a sign that there is something non-organic clogging your drain. If you keep flooding your pipes with Draino, it can cause significant weakening, which will inevitably lead to a leaky or bursting pipe. It’s always better to call for professional plumbing services as soon as possible.
