5 Signs Your Home Is in Need of Plumbing Services

Most people take their plumbing systems for granted. Without an adequately working plumbing system our homes would lack clean water and there would be no way for our wastewater to drain into our sewage systems. This is why it is incredibly important that you get a professional plumbing contractor on the scene as soon as you notice a plumbing issue in your home. Some of these issues are fairly obvious, but some can be a little more difficult to spot. Some of the milder or less noticeable plumbing problems unintentionally get ignored by many homeowners until the problem escalates, which could potentially lead to more serious problems throughout your home. To help you identify these issues, Proactive Home Services has put together a short list of some of the more common warning signs that indicate when you should get a plumber on the phone and have them come out to enact plumbing repairs.

5 Signs You Need to Call a Plumber

  • Unusually High Water Bill - This is normally one of the easiest things to spot as long as you are paying attention to your water bills each month. If you know that your usage hasn't increased dramatically over the past month, but you are still seeing unprecedented rises in your water bill, it is probably time to call out a plumber. More that likely, this is indicative that you have a serious leak somewhere in your home, but the excess water might not be pouring in somewhere that you can see it. A professional will be able to find it and repair it in short order.
  • Wet Spots on Your Walls - If you notice wet spots on your walls, and you are quite certain they aren't from spills or anything of that nature, you will want to keep an eye on the area. If you notice that the wet spots aren't drying out and your floors or walls are still wet, or getting worse, you are likely experiencing a hidden leak. If that's the case, you will want to have a plumber come out and find the problems so that it can be resolved.
  • Musty Smells - Musty smells in your home normally indicate that there is water hiding somewhere in your home that it shouldn't be. Not only does this usually indicate that you need the services of a professional plumbing contractor, but if it is mold, it can actually have a negative impact on your health and that of your family if you exposed to it in an ongoing manner. Dangerous molds like to grow in dark, wet places, and if they go undetected, they can cause serious damage to your home and seriously endanger your health.
  • Soft Patches in Your Yard - If it hasn't been raining, but you are still seeing mushy spots in your yard, you might have a broken water line. This can be extremely hazardous to your home as it risks damaging the foundation, so you will want to call in a professional as soon as possible.
