Never Ignore Minor Home Problems
Homeownership is one of the best feelings ever, but there is a lot of responsibility when it comes to owning a house. Maintenance applies to more than just appliances. When these problems aren’t addressed in a timely manner, more significant issues can occur, including repair bills ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Warren Restoration has some tips on how to catch these issues early so they can be quickly taken care of.
Pipe and Faucet Leak
A tiny pipe leak or a leaking faucet may both be minuscule problems, but they could lead to major water damage. If a leaky faucet isn’t reduced to a slow drip, your water bills will begin to add up, plus you’ll have overflow and drain clogs to boot. In addition, if there is a slight leak in a pipe inside your wall, it could cause water damage inside the wall which would negatively impact the overall structure of your home.
A strange damp area or blemish is a sign of a leaky roof. If this stain is not tended to, the lining of your home’s drywall won’t be able to hold all of its water weight, which will cause the ceiling to collapse. In the event of a more serious situation, the stains could rot your roof beams, which might cause structural damage to the home as well as mold damage.
It may not be a big deal if your doors start to stick. What most people don’t think about is expansion. This occurs when your home has too much moisture getting into it. If your entry has trouble closing, you won’t be able to heat or cool a room efficiently, which could increase your energy bills. Harmful mold spores could get into your room due to moisture, which would be hazardous to your health.
Dulled Hardwood Floors
Many homeowners think that nothing could possibly go wrong when they notice their floor’s protective top coat has either worn out or dulled. If this kind of floor is left untreated, it will become more prone to dirt and discoloration, which could end up costing you thousands if you end up having to replace all of the floors.
Damaged or Missing Caulk around the Tub
If water is trickling behind your tub’s wall tiles, you should speak with Warren Restoration as soon as you can. If the damaged caulk is left untreated, the floors of your bathroom could be ruined and mold damage could become a problem.
These types of issues should never be ignored for any reason. If you suspect any of these problems, contact Warren Restoration right away, especially if you’re not sure what could be causing the trouble.
