Importance of a Plumbing Inspection after an Ohio Winter
During the harsh winter months, your plumbing can experience immense damage caused by strong winds and ice cold temperatures. Many of the damages caused, will go unnoticed until an emergency disaster occurs in the middle of Spring. It is our recommendation that opposed to waiting for disaster to occur, be proactive and schedule a free consultation with one of your Drain Doctor experts today.
Still not feeling proactive? Don’t worry we are available 24/7 to service any and all of your plumbing emergency needs. Want to save time, stress, and money? Just take a look at the possible damages this harsh and confused winter could have on your plumbing: \
1. Leaking Pipes
A frozen pipe occurs when water builds up, freezes and ultimately bursts. If a pipe bursts completely, this is a plumbing emergency that could have been avoided thanks to your annual plumbing inspection. Don’t wait until the pipe bursts, a thorough inspection can locate even the smallest leak!
2. Water Heater Malfunction
An especially cold winter means your water heater has to work much harder to keep your water hot. Once winter is over, it’s a good idea to have your water heater inspected to be sure it is working properly as you head into spring.
3. Sump Pump Problems
In cold weather, any water that may be standing in your sump pump can freeze and damage the pump. If this happens, much like a frozen pipe, once the water thaws, you may have quite a costly leak. Again, getting that annual inspection could save you a lot of time and frustration!
4. Sewer Line Damage
Heavy snow and hard winter weather can do a number on the ground itself. This means your sewer line, which is underground, can be victim to a harsh winter. Tree roots, flooded ground and other unseen variables can cause significant leaks and cracks in your sewer line that will go unseen to the untrained eye until, you guessed it…. The Emergency Plumbing bill!
It is no rumor that cold weather can have an immense impact on your indoor and outdoor plumbing throughout your home or business. In fact, an average of over 250,000 homes each year will suffer damage from frozen and burst pipes. The damage is estimated to be in the $400-500 million range each year.
Don’t let this be you! Give us a call today 419-473-8728 and schedule your free consultation.
