At Everest Plumbing, we have been spreading awareness about the importance of being proactive — not reactive — when it comes to your plumbing. With our inspection services, many customers of ours have saved money and prevented property damage. We recommend scheduling a plumbing inspection with our team at least once a year to ensure your home is up to code (and to give you peace of mind).
When Should I Schedule a Plumbing Inspection?
Outside of routine plumbing inspections, watch out for other signs, such as:
- You notice the presence of water leaks in your home
- Your plumbing appliances aren’t working like they normally should
- You’re planning to buy a new home and want to inspect the plumbing before closing.
Water Leak Detection
Water leaks can be frustrating, especially because they often go undetected until it’s too late. While you may watch out for some signs of a leak, there’s nothing like a professional inspection and evaluation for pesky leaks. Not only can we diagnose them, but we can offer you a solution so that you don’t have to risk extensive and expensive damage to your home.
Signs You Have a Water Pipe Leak
Identifying a leak can be hard. But a vigilant homeowner will be able to recognize some of the signs to call a professional to their home.
- You notice water on the street or puddles in the yard in front of your home
- Your floors, ceilings, walls, or rugs are moist or wet
- Your water bills have skyrocketed recently
- You notice low water pressure
- There are cracks in your driveway or your home’s foundation
- Unpleasant odors are wafting around your yard
- There is water accumulating in your home
Your gas lines require a certain level of care. In most instances, they may not need much maintenance, but they still need regular service to ensure they are safe and in good condition. Rusting, breaking, and cracking can make them vulnerable to leaks. Fortunately, the experts at Everest Plumbing can assist with gas leak detection. We have the tools and knowledge to find the source to ensure your home is safe. Never procrastinate on getting a gas leak fixed!
If you suspect a gas leak in your home, don’t turn on any appliances, step out of your home, and call us immediately.
Signs You Have a Gas Leak
It’s important to know the signs of a gas leak so you know when to call us. Here are some red flags you should watch out for:
- DEAD PLANT-LIFE: If you have indoor plants or foliage surrounding your home, keep a close eye on it. You might have a leak if you notice patches of dead vegetation on your lawn or wilting houseplants.
- HISSING NOISES: Sometimes, when you have a leak, you can hear the sound of gas escaping from the gas line. However, if you can hear it, it likely signifies a significant leak, so you want to evacuate your home and call a professional immediately.
- BAD SMELLS: Additives in gases used by your home’s appliance make it smell like rotten eggs.
- FEELING ILL: If you’re feeling dizzy, nauseous, or have frequent headaches, a gas leak could be the culprit. We can detect leaks to make sure you and your family are safe!
