When Should You Repair Your Pipe Leakage
Curling Vinyl Flooring Or Loose Tiles Next To The Tub
Pipe leakage is pretty hard to detect, simply because the pipe is usually hidden deep in the
walls or the floors. Usually, we do not really see water directly (if you do see water directly,
the problem is already very serious), but there are other signs that we can detect. For
example, if the vinyl flooring starts to curl or the tiles start to loosen near the tub, there is a
high possibility that your pipe may be leaking underneath. This is because under the erosion
of water, wooden or tile floorings can be damaged pretty easily. You may see glues being
dissolved or wood being eroded etc. Do take note of these signs. If you see them, do contact
your local professional plumbers immediately.
Peeling Paint Of Wood Finish
Another sign of pipe leakage is peeling paint. If your wooden floor is of good quality, the
paint is actually more vulnerable than the wood itself. The paint surrounding the wood
serves as a protection layer. Water leaked from your pipes tend to damage this protective
layer first before it actually damages the wood itself. As a result, do get your local plumbers
to fix the problems early before your entire wood floors are damaged.
Water Stains/Mould Spots
If you see water stains or mould spots, your pipe may be leaking. Especially if you keep
cleaning these areas, but the stains and mould spots still come back. As we all know, stains
and mould spots like wet areas. If the areas are generally kept dry from the top (i.e., we do
not keep water there), there should be no reason that water stains or mould spots can form.
As a result, when such things do form, it is usually because of the water underneath. How
can water come from underneath the floor then? Most likely the water comes from your
Why Should You Replace Or Repair Your Pipe Immediately?
Pests like a wet environment. Usually, if the house floors are generally kept dry, pests do
not like to inhabit there. However, if a pipe is leaking, the water from the pipe provides the
vital source of inhabitation for pests, such as ants, cockroaches, and mice. If you leave the
leaking pipes there without fixing them, there may be bigger problems like pest infestation.
Then you will have to solve not only the peaking pipes but also the pests as well. As a result,
please get your pipes fixed immediately once some problems surface.
As we explain above, the floorings can be damaged by the water from leaking pipes. Some
people may think that only wood floorings can be damaged. However, the truth is that any
flooring may face problems if water accumulates beneath it. For example, marble flooring
may have cracks and deep stains formed from water accumulation. Tiles may loosen once
eroded by water. These are just some examples. The actual damage by leaking pipes also
includes damage to walls or even furniture. As a result, do get your leaking pipes fixed as
early as possible.
Unsanitary is an obvious point here. As water accumulates, germs can accumulate too. If
pest infestation also occurs, more diseases can be spread. You do not want your house to be
unclean. As a result, you can contact our highly trained plumbers
How We Fix It?
Inspection Of Parts And Diagnosis
As we usually cannot observe the leaked water directly, unless the problem of leaking pipes is already obvious. As a result, our professional technicians will inspect closely every single detail of the plumbing system. If we confirm that pipes are leaking, they also aim to detect at the same time, where the source of the problem is. Once the source of leakage is confirmed, we can then decide what kind of solutions we should provide, either sealing or replacing.
Sometimes simply sealing the pipes can solve the problem. If the leakage is small, we can use a special type of sealing materials to fill up the gap and solve the problem. We just need to turn off the plumbing system in the properties for a while and seal up the leaking parts. This method is cheaper, but if the leakage is significant, such method may not work. And admittedly, sealed parts may not function as well as the original version.
Installation/Replacement Of Pipe
Once the problem becomes serious, or we want a complete solution to prevent the similar problem arising again, we can do pipe replacement. This is more costly, but this can be a really long-term solution. Usually, once the pipes are replaced, no similar problem will arise again for a long time.
