Concerned about leaking pipes in your business or commercial rental property?
Preventative plumbing maintenance is a great way to bring peace of mind regarding pipes or other plumbing issues. Establishing a relationship with a trained plumbing professional who can service your particular business ensures that you will have someone to call when things go wrong. Remember, water damage is far more costly to repair then plumbing issues so don’t put off fixing those leaking pipes! Common plumbing problems include leaky faucets or fixtures, clogged drains, temperature issues and something called “silent leaks” – basically leaks in places you don’t see.
Another issue is something called “slab leaks” aka foundation leak. This is when pipes are leaking below the foundation of your home – obviously in a place where you can’t see them. Symptoms include hearing running water when water is not running, cracks in walls or floors, excessive moisture underneath carpets, wet baseboards or a hot spot on the floor. Slab leaks have a number of causes from broken lines to shifting foundations. If you suspect a slab leak, contact a qualified plumbing technician to properly detect and diagnose this problem.
