Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs
One of the most received calls we take for plumbing services in Shreveport year round is leak detection and repair. With so many different leak and clog-related issues that can develop in your home, prevention goes a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that may mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you take care of the problem before it ends up as costly water damage:
- A higher water bill than usual could mean a leak.
- Pipes that bang loudly and consistently are a sign of trouble.
- Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water can be signs of larger problems.
- Moisture on your floors or in your walls may point to a plumbing leak.
- Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation may mean you have a leak.
