We take our jobs and each and every one of your calls seriously. That’s why we offer specialized leak detection and repair services for both water and gas leaks. Let’s take a closer look:
Signs There May Be a Water Leak in Your Home
Unlike the obvious signs of a gurgling clogged toilet or a broken pipe gushing from your ceiling, leaks can go undetected for quite some time. Unfortunately, for your home, this means that the damage from a slow leak can happen gradually. In fact, in many cases, by the time you actually notice these leaks and call a plumber in to assess the situation, a great deal of damage has already been done.
Fortunately, you can stay ahead of such disasters by learning to recognize the signs of a hidden water leak in your home. Some signs you need to be on the lookout for include the following:
- There’s an unexplainable increase in your water bill.
- You notice wet spots or pooling away from your appliances.
- There are sudden cracks in your foundation that are not from regular settling or aging.
- Mold or mildew keeps coming back in your ceiling and walls, no matter how much you clean.
All of these are tell-tale signs that there is a water leak somewhere in your home and that it’s time to give our team of trained professionals a call! We’ll come in and work to find the source of the problem as quickly as possible so that repairs can begin to fix the issue right away.
Signs There May Be a Gas Leak in Your Home
Though somewhat unrelated to occurrences of water leaks in your home but still a part of your plumbing system, we also like to address and stress the importance of knowing the signs of gas leaks in your home. Just like water leaks, gas leaks can sneak up on you and cause serious harm before you ever even know there’s a problem.
A gas leak in your home is very serious business that when left undetected could end up putting your family’s health and safety at risk. In addition to the obvious risk of fire, you also have to worry about the implications to your physical well-being. Undetected gas leaks can lead to intense headaches, memory loss, nausea, flu-like symptoms, and many other undesirable physical ailments. So, again, we stress the importance of knowing the signs that there may be a gas leak in your home. These signs include the following:
- Your burner flames are orange, rather than the usual crisp blue flame that’s used for cooking.
- Your pilot light won’t stay lit.
- There’s unexplainable condensation on or around your windows and doors.
- There are signs of scorching on or around your major appliances.
If you have even the slightest suspicion that there may be a gas leak in your home, don’t wait for the obvious signs to show! They may not come until it’s too late, and your health and home are already paying the extreme price. Instead, the moment you have any suspicions, leave your property, and call Tritan Plumbing straight away.
Whether you’re dealing with a possible water or a gas leak, we urge you to never, ever ignore any signs! Malfunctioning plumbing of any kind will only get worse if left unchecked, putting your home and personal safety at risk.
At Tritan Plumbing, we offer quick and courteous leak detection and pipe repair services. Our team is standing by and available to you any hour of the day or night, so don’t hesitate to call us at 815-515-4062.
