ThinkstockPhotos-455288951Plumbing disasters are one of the most costly home repairs today. When a plumbing problem arises most homeowners will try and resolve the issue on their own to save time and money.  But in the long run calling a professional to fix the problem at the onset may be the better option. Here are a few reasons to call a licensed professional…

Unexplained Moisture or Puddles

These puddles or moist areas could be the direct result of corroded pipes, loose fittings or problems with water pressure. It is important to call a plumbing service quickly before a small problem turns into a burst pipe leaving a huge mess and homeowners without water.

Inconsistent Water Pressure

This can be a sign that there is a clog, leak or problem with the main lines. Improper water pressure can damage pipes and any appliances or systems attached to the pipes.

Slow Drains

Slow drains can be a symptom of many different serious issues. A professional should be called if a drain is consistently clogged.  Store bought liquid drain cleaners are harmful to the environment and can damage the plumbing system.   Typically these problems are located deep within the pipes may require a service called hydro-jetting.

Guardian Plumbing of Annapolis, MD recommends that homeowners call a licensed and insured plumbing contractor for safety, liability and warranty reasons.  A home’s plumbing system is a crucial part of everyday life–it works to ensure safe drinking and bathing water.  Many insurance companies will not cover plumbing damage caused by an unlicensed contractor.  A plumbing contractor can also provide warranties for parts and services to cover your repair for the long term.
