Household waterproofing and flood protection can save you thousands of dollars over time, not to mention it helps to protect your home and everything on the inside. Protect your Langley homes from the flood damage!
If you’ve got a backed up sewer, it’s important to get expert help right away! Sewer backups in Langley are the results of blockages from a large number of things, as well as excess water following a heavy rainfall or flood that leads to sewage flowing out of Langley city sewer lines and into homes through drain pipes.
Damaged pipes, worn out hardware or a shoddy connection could all result in leaks and can cause significant damage if not dealt with immediately. The most common source of household leaks is found in toilets. Langley homeowners also need to watch for appliance leaks, including dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerators.
Checking the key parts of your Langley home plumbing can help you stay ahead of potential issues or repairs. An inspection checks your pipes, drains, toilets and fixtures. Diagnoses and inspections are designed to help you maintain the long term health of your home’s plumbing system.
Clogged drains can be a massive and expensive pain when left untreated. If you see water building up around any of the drains in your Langley home and draining as quickly as it’s supposed to, it is likely you have a drain clog. RepairCare can send a qualified and licensed plumber to inspect and fix any clogged drains you may be facing.
The most common types of clogs include:
Hair Clogs: When showering, some of your hair inevitably goes down the drain, and it can easily get stuck especially if you have long or thick hair. You can tell when your shower drain is clogged if the water is taking much longer to drain than normal, or if while showering you notice a significant amount of pooling. While getting rid of a hair clog can be simple enough, it should be taken care of ASAP as it can damage the pipes and result in a leak, which can be very expensive to fix.
Garbage Clogs: You definitely cannot put all of your garbage down the garbage disposal, despite the temptation. Grease, oil, bones, twist ties, paper, napkins, cigarette butts etc, should not be thrown down the garbage disposal. Not only can the damage the drains, but they can turn into sludge, clogging the drain, resulting in the need for a repair.
Toilets Clogged: The only things that you should be flushing is human waste and a reasonable amount of toilet paper. Other products including paper towels, napkins, and feminine hygiene products absolutely should not be flushed down the toilet. The toilet’s plumbing isn’t designed to push those items through, and if they are flushed, it will very likely result in a clog.
