Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs

One of the most received calls we receive for plumbing services in Saint Charles during the year is leak detection and repair. With the variety of different leak and clog-related issues that can happen in your home, preventative maintenance can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are a host of clues that might mean a plumbing leak, and being congnizent of that could help you take care of the problem before it ends up as expensive water damage: 

  • A higher water bill than normal could mean a leak.
  • Pipes that bang loudly and constantly are a sign of concern.
  • Rust stains in your sinks or rust-tinged water could be signs of bigger problems.
  • Moisture on your floors or in your walls could point to a plumbing leak.
  • Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation can mean you have a leak.
