Opting for preventive maintenance of your Ottawa home’s plumbing helps you stay ahead of potential issues and avoid the need for extensive repairs. This protects the long term health of your home, as a professional diagnosis and inspection of plumbing, pipes, toilets, drains, and fixtures helps assure your assets are safe when leaks cause large-scale damage.
At home, leaks are common in toilets, and result from damaged pipes, worn out hardware, and poor connections. Leaks can cause significant damage when not immediately addressed. When checking for leaks, make sure to look out for appliances, such as dishwashers and refrigerators, as well as fixtures, like faucets and shower heads in your house in Ottawa. All these can cause leaks that start out small, but turn into major pipe failures when not properly and immediately handled.
The most common types of leaks include:
Clogged drains are always a problem. When you notice water building up around the drains in your home in Ottawa, be on the watch and drain the water already building up. To make sure it’s done right, call us at RepairCare, and we will immediately send a licensed and qualified plumber your way to inspect and unclog damaged drains.
Sewers that are backed up in Ottawa result from excess water due to heavy rainfall, drain line corrosion, blockages from tree roots, improper disposal of grease products, or flood that leads to sewage out of sewer lines, and could end up entering your home through drain pipes. If water does enter your home, make sure to get help right away by calling us at RepairCare.
Natural disasters are inevitable, but you can prepare for and protect your home from resulting damages. For instance, you can waterproof your house and fit it with flood protection measures. Investing in these prevention methods gives you back thousands of dollars in savings as your home and valuables stay safe in the event of a disaster.
