We can all be reluctant to call someone else into our home to help fix our home-making issues once and a while.  That reluctance, however, is not worth the long-term damage that a plumbing issue can do to your home if left untreated.  Here are some common plumbing issues that, despite what you may think, may be better serviced by a professional plumber than just you all by your lonesome.

Leaky showers

Any appliance or fixture in your bathroom with a leaky seal can cause water to seep into the wooden beams and drywall of your house.  This can make stains on the ceiling or walls of any room adjacent to the leaky bathroom and even put essential wiring at risk.  An untreated leaky bathroom can cause water damage similar to a flood over a long period of time if you are not careful.   Rather than attacking the leaky shower blindly with duct tape, call a professional plumber and get some peace of mind as well as protection from serious leaks in the future.

Damaged or leaking faucets

Having a constant drip dripping sound coming from your kitchen can be enough to drive you insane.  However, if improperly taken care of, a leaky faucet can do a lot more than just annoy you.  Even if you do stop the dripping with some tape or a rage (a very unpleasant option) it will not stop the actual source of the leak.  This means water will still be seeping from your damaged tap and costing you more and more money for water you are not using – which can be especially bad in the winter months when heat and electricity bills climb steadily higher.  Leave the tackling of the piping below the sink to an experienced professional plumber.  This will avoid potential home disasters that will cost even more to fix.

Professional plumbers are in your area for a reason; not everyone has intricate knowledge of a home’s piping and water supply.  However, if you call the professionals at Mattioni Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc., you can rest easy knowing all your plumbing needs will be taken care of with speed, precision and skill.
