What Ways Can Leaky Pipes Cause Damage To Your Home?
From water damage to pests and insects in your home, a leaky pipe can cause great damage to your home. If you don’t seek out a professional to get your pipes repaired, any of the following issues can arise at your house.
Water damage. The pipes leaking can lead to water seeping through walls, ceilings, and floors. This can cause structural damage to the house as well as mold growth throughout. Not only that, but it can also damage your furniture, and other belongings and cost you money to replace them.
Insects and pests. Water in your home can attract pests such as cockroaches, ants, and termites, and create an environment where they can thrive. This can in turn also cause structural damage to your home, and put you and your family at risk of falling ill.
Increased water bills. A pipe leak means water if flowing somewhere when it shouldn’t be. If you leave this without getting it fixed, you will notice an increase in your water bill each month.

We had a leaky pipe and couldn't get anyone to come out to fix it today. Same Day was the only one that would come. I was told they would be here between 5-6. They called at 1:45 and asked if they could come right away. They were very professional and took care of our problem very quickly. I am very pleased with the work and would definitely consider Same Day plumbing again.
We had a shower head that was leaking and 2 toilets that would run from time to time. The tech was great he was well spoken and professional. Completed the job and everything is working great!
We came back from vacation to find a leak in our hot water tank (and a basement full of water!). Same Day Plumbing was there the next morning and handled everything professionally!
