Leaks and Other Plumbing Repairs

One of the most received calls we take for plumbing services throughout the year is leak detection and repair. With the variety of different leak and clog-related problems that can happen in your home, preventative maintenance can go a long way. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety®, there are several clues that might mean a plumbing leak, and being aware of that could help you handle the issue before it causes pricey water damage:

 

  • A higher water bill than usual could indicate a leak.
  • Pipes that bang loudly and consistently 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 can point to a plumbing leak.
  • Signs of wet soil erosion near your home’s foundation can mean you have a leak.

 

All you have to do is call Fras-Air/General Service Experts at 908-448-2154 or request an appointment online and we’ll handle all your plumbing and water heating needs.
