Water pipes can become damaged due to freezing, deterioration, corrosion or even shifting soil. When that happens, you could have water damage and an increased risk of harmful mold growth. You may not even realize you have a leak unless you’re looking for telltale signs like low water pressure. Or if you notice that your water is starting to have a rusty color, odds are that you have corrosion in your pipes. In some cases, the damage may be extensive enough to require repiping.
Ensuring the health of your water pipes is an important part of maintaining your home. If you’ve noticed any of these signs or if you’re just concerned about the age of your plumbing system, it’s a good idea to have your pipes checked so that you don’t end up with a more serious problem such as flooding or mold.
