Leak-Prone Areas in Your Home

water stains under the sink

Even if you’re the most careful homeowner out there, plumbing leaks can still occur at some point due to wear and tear on the system. While some leaks are easy to detect, others can go on for months before they show themselves such as slab leaks. Chances are high that they have already caused damage to your home before you even realize it.

That said, it pays to know leak-prone areas in your home so you can contact a qualified plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, for repairs. A.M. Plumbing & Rooter is here to help you take preventive measures and keep your home structurally sound should leaks occur.

Under Your Home’s Foundation

If your home is built on a concrete foundation, watch out for slab leaks. These are one of the most dangerous and persistent types of leaks. When the pipes underneath the slab deteriorate, water may leak under the foundation, compromising your home’s structural integrity. Slab leaks can be tricky to detect, but you can spot them early with preemptive slab leak detection and repair as well as preventative plumbing services.

Under the Sink

Several reasons cause leaks to occur under the sink. For one, the pipes might be already corroded, and the connections are worn-out. Clogs can also form in the pipes, keeping water from flowing freely. This burdens the pipes, causing leaks to form eventually. This issue requires prompt plumbing repairs to avoid further damage.

Kitchen Appliances

Unsurprisingly, your kitchen receives the most traffic in your home. As such, the appliances in your kitchen wear out faster than in other areas, which means there’s a high chance for leaks to spring. Always inspect your dishwashers, water dispensers, and other appliances for signs of leaks or damage, and seek the help of a reputable plumbing company when necessary.

A.M. Plumbing & Rooter is here to help you get ahead of leaks. We’ll thoroughly inspect your plumbing system for signs of issues and fix them as we go. You can also count on us for emergency plumbing repairs. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
