Emergency Pipe Repair Services in Milwaukee
We Repair Pipe Leaks
Whether hidden or not, leaky pipes can present big problems for homeowners if left untreated. The fact is, standing water can accumulate and lead to visible or even hidden mold growth. Leaking pipes require professionals to either repair or replace them.
You don’t want to look to use drain cleaners or DIY patchwork on your pipes as it is only going to cause more issues. Leaks shouldn’t be looked at as a minor issue even though it might seem like one. The damages that can result from an untreated or improperly repaired leaky pipe can be extensive.
In some cases, the leaks that might exist can be virtually undetectable. Not only will these leaks quickly run up your water bill, but they can cause unseen water damage which can quickly accumulate and lead to mold growth. The best way to monitor a potential hidden leak is by closely monitoring your water bill to see if any inconsistencies exist. When you have a hidden leak you might notice a sudden spike in your water usage which can lead you to suspect a potential leak.
We Repair and Thaw Frozen Pipes
Frozen pipes can occur for various reasons. Typically, you will notice a frozen pipe during the colder months of the year when the temperature is below freezing. With the cold Winters we get here in Milwaukee you are likely to experience a frozen pipe at some point.
If you can visibly spot a frozen pipe you can always inspect it to see whether or not it has suffered damage. Regardless, you should be calling on a professional to ensure that the pipe is intact and that it won’t present future issues.
We Repair and Replace Burst Pipes
Unlike a leak that can be somewhat controlled to minimize damage, a burst pipe is uncontrollable. When a pipe truly bursts it can be very difficult to minimize the damage. This is easily one of the more dangerous and damaging of the plumbing emergencies that must be addressed as soon as possible.
The issue with a burst pipe stems from the amount of water damage that is likely to result from it. Even if you manage to shut off your water supply quickly after noticing the pipe burst you will still be dealing with a lot of water damage. Ideally, in situations like this, you want to remove anything and everything from the area to avoid further damage.
