Plumbing Inspection

Plumbing  Inspection in Noblesville, IN

Few things are worse than coming home to a flooded basement or an overflowing toilet. Taking precautions, such as regular inspections, can help to avoid any issues from arising. However, plumbing issues are often a common occurrence amongst homeowners and may occur at any time. Contacting a professional can help to ensure properly made repairs, and the plumbing system will work as it should. To determine when the services of a professional plumber are needed, it is important to observe the following signs.

When to Contact a Plumber

Low Water Pressure

The first sign a plumbing issue is occurring is a lack of water pressure. We often notice lower water pressure when one is taking a shower or if a toilet is not flushing as quickly as it should. A leaking pipe may cause low pressure, as well as improperly sized pipes, or clogs.

Noticeable Water Accumulating

Depending on the scenario, such as water dripping from a showerhead, visible water is not always bad. However, if one notices water pooling underneath the toilet base or seeping from the floor, it is important to contact a plumber immediately. Doing so prevents further problems from arising.

Brown Spots on the Ceiling

Brown spots on the ceiling are more than just a hideous spot; they may be a sign that water is leaking directly above. Before repairing the ceiling, it is important to locate the source of the leak and repair it as soon as possible.

Mold Growth on Walls or Cupboards

Mold growing in the home is never a good sign, however, if it is noticeable on the cupboards or walls of the bathroom, it may show a leaking pipe. Mold will only grow in wet environments, and if there is excess moisture in the room, the mold will spread quickly. It is essential to find the source of the problem as quickly as possible to ensure further damages.

Foul Drain Smells

While smelly bacteria in the kitchen and bathroom drains are enviable, persistent foul smells emitting from the drains could be a sign of a block or break in the home’s sewer line.

Leaky Faucets

A leaky faucet not only is annoying, but it can also cause water bills to rise. Dripping faucets waste a lot of water, affecting the earth’s environment. The primary culprits for leaky faucets are worn-out seals and other interior parts.

Murky Water

Water that is not clear when flowing from a faucet signifies a serious problem. Brown water may be a sign of too much iron in the water or that there is a problem with the home’s water heater. Blue or green water may show copper pipes are corroding. To maintain healthy drinking water, it is important to contact a professional for repairs.

Water Sounds When Faucets Are Not in Use

The sound of water moving through pipes when a faucet or other components are not in use is a sign of a leak somewhere in the plumbing system. Not only can the problems arise, but lack of repair can also increase the home’s water bill.

Slow Draining Systems

A slow-moving drain is caused by a clog somewhere in the piping system. It is essential to contact a plumber to resolve the clog rather than using chemical products, such as drain cleaners. Drain cleaners can cause damage or corrosion to the pipes, leading to larger repair jobs.

Contacting a Plumber

While some plumbing issues may seem simple to handle on one’s own, often lack of experience will cause more severe and expensive repairs. Hiring a professional plumbing company for repairs is important. A well-experienced plumbing company can identify and address the issues before any serious problems occur. When searching for a reputable company, it is essential to receive recommendations from others. By doing so, a person can rest assured they have found the best company for their repairs.

It is also important that the company guarantees their work, including the pricing estimate and cost of parts if needed. The final tip for contacting a plumbing company is verifying the company is licensed, bonded, and insured. A licensed, bonded, and insured company protects the homeowner from being legally responsible should the plumber occur any injuries while on the job.

Regular maintenance and inspections are important for all plumbing systems, but they do not always guarantee that issues will not arise. Being informed and identifying the signs of a plumbing issue are promising ways to minimize any issues and ensure the plumbing systems work correctly.
