Homeowners need to be aware of the danger of water leaks and other plumbing issues and which homes are most susceptible, announces MesquitePlumbingGuys.com
Mesquite, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2015 -- According to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, plumbing failures remain the number one cause of residential water losses and lead to significantly higher payouts. The average cost after the insurance deductible is paid comes to $5,092. Individuals don't want to spend this money when it can easily be avoided by undertaking basic maintenance tasks. If a problem does arise, however, one needs to call in a professional plumber and many choose to make use of Mesquite Plumbing Guys (http://mesquiteplumbingguys.com).
"Plumbing disasters cost a great deal of money and most come as a result of plumbing supply materials going bad. Many believe frozen pipes are the number one complaint, yet this isn't the case. Homes that were built 16 to 40 years ago are most at risk of plumbing system failure and total water loss claims stemming from plumbing material failure tend to be twice as common in the southern states. Individuals need to remember this at all times and make use of plumbing contractors (http://mesquiteplumbingguys.com/plumbing-contractors-in-mesquite-tx) to detect minor problems before they escalate," John Barnes, spokesperson for Mesquite Plumbing Guys, explains.
Leaking or bursting pipes account for many of these disasters. Although leaks may be very small, the pressure on the pipe over time weakens the pipe. In most cases, pipes are hidden in walls, under floors or under concrete slabs. The plumber brings equipment designed to detect these leaks early. Homeowners need to be alert for signs of leaking pipes also and call in the professionals if a potential problem is detected.
"Buckling walls or ceilings are a sign of a water leak and one that is of concern. When a ceiling or wall buckles, this means it has become so saturated that the surface strength is now compromised. Mold or mildew in the home may be a sign of a water leak, and the same is true of damaged paint or wallpaper in the home. Old water which has accumulated in an area also puts off a musty or earthy smell. If this is detected in the home, a plumber needs to be called in," Barnes continues.
Of course, other problems may require that one call in a plumber. When a hot water heater goes bad, it's best to call a plumber in, and the same should be done when drains need to be cleaned. Plumbing services (http://mesquiteplumbingguys.com/plumbing-contractors-in-mesquite-tx) offered include kitchen and bath remodeling, leaky faucet repair and toilet clog removal. Many tasks require a professional, one with the right skills and equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
