What are the dangers of leaking pipes?
Leaking pipes can end up costing you a lot of money in home repairs if not immediately addressed. Leaking pipes can result in severe water damage to your home, if not professionally attended to. By catching the signs of a leaking pipe early and contacting a professional immediately, you can avoid major problems in the future. Tell-tale signs that you have a leaking pipe include warping floors, dampness under carpets, and cracks appearing in your concrete. If your water bills are higher than normal it is a good indication that you may have a leaking pipe. Discoloured or puffed-out areas on walls or ceilings or a musty scent coming from your drains are also signs that you may have a leak.
How can you avoid bursting pipes?
Frozen pipes that can eventually burst is a very common problem in the wintertime. To prepare for winter, homeowners should shut off all water to the exterior of the home, including your hose bibs and water sprinkler systems. Outdoor hoses should be removed and drained. Since water expands when it freezes, pipes that are exposed to severe cold can burst. In cold weather, water in sinks should be left on at a trickle.
If you plan to go on a trip during the winter, leave your heat on. You wouldn’t want to come back to a costly mess. You should also keep your thermostat set at a consistent temperature throughout the season, refraining from turning it up or down. Bosco Home Services also offers pipe thawing services to prevent frozen pipes from bursting.
What are some common signs that your sewer line needs repairs?
- Unpleasant odour: The first and most obvious sign of a sewer line problem is a highly unpleasant sewage odour coming from your basement.
- Odd sounds: The way your water sounds when you flush your toilet or use your sink can indicate a clogged sewer line. Clogged sewer lines can sometimes cause your water to make a bubbling noise when draining or flushing.
- Standing water: Do you see standing water where the sewer pipe is located? This is an indicator of a burst line that will require repair. Alternatively, if water backs up into your sink or tub, your sewer line may be blocked.
Whether you have a sewer line that needs repair, suspect a leaking pipe, or are dealing with a burst pipe, your best option is to call the plumbing experts at Bosco Home Services as soon as possible. We can promptly evaluate your lines and pipes and fix any issues you may be having.
