Plumbing Leak Water Damage – Bow, NH 03304

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

The March Madness basketball tournament is over! After all the celebrating an exciting first; or cheering up after a devastating loss (depending on the team you backed) the last thing you think about is plumbing leak water damage. But now that all the noise is over and your Bow, NH house is deathly quiet, it’s a good time to listen to your house. Do you hear dripping or leaking? Leaking from a pipe can become costly if left unmanaged. The sound of running water or a spraying sound can be signs of a leak and should be tended to as soon as possible.

Water damage from plumbing leaks, drips and squeaks

Checking for the sound of drips or running water in frequently used rooms is important, but don’t forget to check for leaks in rooms you don’t use very often. Listening isn’t the only way to find plumbing leak water damage. You should also look for rust or water puddles. These can appear at the base of your faucets and around sink drains, and in tubs or showers.
Squeaky faucets are another indication that you may have a serious plumbing problem; if your faucets make a squeaking noise when you turn them on or off or if faucets don’t turn on or off easily, you may have a problem. Another dead giveaway for leaks is an unusually high water bill. Suspicious spikes in your water bill can be a clear indication of a leak or some other type of plumbing problem.

Chronic puddles or wet spots should not be ignored

It’s also a good idea to inspect your home for puddles. Any leaks around toilets, where the toilet meets the floor or wall; or around water heater tanks. Uneven floor tiles around the toilet and water heaters are also a potential sign of a plumbing leak water damage. A hidden chronic leak can cause the wooden subfloor to swell thus distorting the tiles laying on top of it. It’s important to know where your water shut off valve is in case of a leak.

Leaks can lead to mold damage

If you have leaks and they go undetected they can cause severe damage to your home. Water is corrosive; it can rust and erode metals as well as weaken wood. Once water damage sets in, it could cost you into the thousands. Not only can it cause structural damage, but it could lead to a potential health hazard if mold starts growing.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
