For a homeowner, business, or property manager, pipe repair can be an extremely scary event that shocks and stops them in their tracks. With the risk of discomfort or forcing the closure of your business for a period of time, your bathroom and sinks may be completely unusable if a pipe has burst or is leaking significantly. The smallest of leaks may go unnoticed for days, weeks, or even months at a time – until it is too late. On occasion, as a homeowner, you should walk the property and look over the pipes once in a while to ensure no leaks have appeared and the pipes are still in working condition.
For the most part, ignoring pipes that need repairs can lead to significant damage, overflow, and long-term property values dropping significantly. If you wait, you risk:
- Worsening damage or flooding in portions of your home, specifically in the basement where water tends to accumulate with ease.
- Significant repair costs – The more you wait, the more damage will be done. The worse the damage, the higher the repair bill to fix the problem will be.
- Discomfort – Obviously, being unable to use the bathroom, wash your hands or your dishes, or even take a shower when you want, will be a huge discomfort to everyone.
Despite offering 24/7 emergency plumbing service, we never like to see a client really experience their own emergency. If you can, repair the pipes as soon as possible before worsening conditions force you to phone us up in the middle of the night.
We mentioned flooding, which is probably the worst case scenario a homeowner can experience. Flooding constitutes a serious emergency, but an avoidable one, for the most part.
If you need your pipes repaired and want them completed as soon as possible, call General Plumbing today at (561) 771-0086.
