Home repairs add to the cost of owning a home. To make matters worse, you often need home repairs when you least expect it. Although there are some home repairs you can delay, plumbing issues can't be delayed. In fact, our team at Steve’s Plumbing offers emergency plumbing services because water leaks and busted pipes can lead to other home damage, including the following problems.

Mold Accumulation

Beyond getting an expensive water bill in the mail, allowing a water leak to persist will eventually lead to mold and mildew. Under the right conditions, mold spores can flourish within 48 hours. Without acting quickly, mold can infiltrate your home in days.

Our emergency plumbing services can prevent the need for mold remediation. With a simple phone call, we can stop your leak and repair your pipes without inconveniencing you.

Foundation Issues

If your home is built on a slab, it’s possible that your water pipes are below the cement subfloor. Water leaks are common in these homes because these pipes receive little to no maintenance year after year. Worst of all, water leaks under your slab can lead to foundation problems. If you have a home on a slab and you suspect you have a slab water leak, then you should contact us immediately to remedy the problem.

Warped Wood

Water leaks under your sinks is another common problem in homes. There are a lot of connectors that connect the curved pipes under your sink, and over the years they become loose. What may seem like a drip of water initially, can easily change and become a severe leak that causes warped wood underneath your sink. To avoid replacing your cabinets, you should contact us as soon as you see water dripping form your sink.

Slip and Falls

Another serious problem water leaks cause is falls. Whether a family member falls or someone visiting your home, a fall in your home can cost you a lot of money. If a guest slips and falls in your home, it’s possible that you’ll have to spend money on more than medical bills; you may have to contend with a lawsuit. Luckily, you can avoid all of this by taking advantage of our emergency plumbing services.

At Steve’s Plumbing, we are a phone call away from protecting you and your family from the dangers of water. If you suspect you have a water leak, give us a call so that we can come out as soon as possible.
