Like our electrical and home interior systems, our plumbing systems are rarely given a second thought – until there is a problem. Here at Stewart Domestic Plumbing, we suggest that every homeowner should opt for regular plumbing inspections from a qualified plumber who can then advise or repair as necessary. However, most of the time homeowners simply ignore these issues and there can be countless reasons to put off plumbing repair. Perhaps they are short on cash and can’t accommodate a plumber or they don’t have time and wait for repairing instead. With so many modern day demands we can ignore leaks or general maintenance and wait for things to escalate. Neglecting minor repairs often results in bigger problems down the road, these are often much more expensive to deal with.
Deferred maintenance can haunt you
Most people think that a leakage problem from a pipe or a few drops of water from tap are no big deal, right? Do you know as per EPA’s recent Water Sense Program, a single leak from the tap can waste 10,000 gallons of water per year! Think about what it means to your water bill – paying for the water that gets wasted. In addition to this a leak from the pipe can damage your kitchen or bathroom’s structure. If this causes serious damage, you will have to repair the kitchen or bathroom as well as having a plumbing issue to address.
Prevention of health issues or diseases
Ignoring a plumbing issue can reach far beyond your pocketbook. Mildew can promote respiratory problems and biofilm in pipes can be responsible for a number of noxious diseases. If you don’t want to let these problems arise the choice is obvious – call a professional plumber. The good ones have a wealth of experience and can bring your property back up to a safe standard.
With a professional you can have peace of mind
If you have a sudden plumbing problem, or have been trying to forget about an ongoing one – don’t wait any longer. Simply phone Stewart Domestic Plumbing on 07985 590 012.
