Don’t Let Plumbing Flood Your Home - Let Us Check Your Pipes!
Water damage in your home can be caused by many different factors. A common reason that basements flood is caused by plumbing flood. A plumbing failure is often common to find within homes. It is very hard to ensure that every toilet, sink, tub, etc. in the home is properly tightened and never leads to a flood. If a pipe or water line were to burst, it can instantly pour gallons and gallons of water into your home, leaving you with devastating damage.
There are a few different causes of plumbing floods that every homeowner should be aware of:
- Failing Washing Machine Hoses: Washer hoses sustain a lot of water pressure when in use, and old-fashioned rubber washer hoses are not meant to withstand that constant pressure. If they were to burst, they could quickly pour hundreds of gallons of water in your basement very quickly.
- Leaky Water Heater Units: Water heaters can leak and cause major water damage to your basement. The average heater lasts about 7 years, so it’s a good idea to have yours checked to make sure it’s working properly. All water heaters are designed to automatically refill themselves, a failed water heater will leak for as long as it has access to a water supply.
- Burst pipes or water lines: These can be hard to predict as a pipe can burst at any point and can cause devastating damage to your basement. Some pipes or lines can even burst underneath your basement floor, making it difficult to detect the problem.
Plumbing floods can pour several gallons of water into your home very quickly and leave devastating damage to your home’s structure and your personal belongings.
