While torrential rains are excellent for your lawns, it can wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing fixtures. There are little problems in the home that can occur due to precipitation such as puddles of water that do not go away and cracks in the home's foundation. While these issues seem minor, they can become significant problems if not handled immediately.
If your area is experiencing heavy rainfall and you have noticed minor issues appear, contact an emergency plumbing NYC company. A professional plumber will inspect the home for any signs of damage. A plumber will repair any problems found. Additionally, a professional can fix the home to prevent the same problems from occurring in the future.
One of the first signs of water damage from rain is excessive moisture or ponding water in your home’s foundation or basement. These issues can be troublesome because they lead to a buildup of mold and mildew. Mold and mildew can be incredibly dangerous for your family’s health.
Another common sign that you may be experiencing damage from wet weather is a slow drain. You can test the speed of draining by pouring water down your pipes. If the water is slow to go down, you have a problem. A clogged drain needs professional attention. Simply pouring a drain cleaner down your pipes is not enough to fix the issue.
