Did you recently discover a leak in your kitchen or bathroom plumbing? Maybe you were going about your day as usual, only to notice a drip coming from the ceiling below your master bath. No one plans on leaky pipes, but from time to time, you’re caught off guard by a plumbing emergency.
If you notice a leaky pipe or signs of active water damage, you need to respond sooner rather than later. You don’t want the leak to get worse, to damage your home, or to promote mold growth. Here’s what we recommend at Indy Renovation for dealing with a leaky pipe:
- Shut off the water to that section of the house or to the entire house if you don’t know where the leak is originating. If you’re not sure how to shut off the water, proceed to step two.
- Call a plumber. If it’s an active leak that’s causing damage, make sure your plumber understands you need emergency service. Many plumbers, like Indy Renovation, offer 24/7 emergency plumbing service.
- Minimize water damage. Grab some towels or a squeegee, and try not to let the water pool while you wait for the plumber. You can use a dehumidifier as well. If your leak is happening in the basement, you may want to make sure your sump pump is turned on.
When the plumber arrives, he should be able to assess the situation and offer a quick answer to help you avoid further damage. Whether you need pipe repair or a complete replacement, Indy Renovation can help you find a solution for your leaky pipes. Our plumbers are some of the best in the Indianapolis area.
