Faucets & Sinks Repair

plumberVirtually everyone has had issues with their faucets and sinks at one time or another. However, faucet and sink repair that is performed by a professional plumbing company is the best way to deal with these problems. There are a number of variables when it comes to problems such as these that can often make it very difficult to successfully repair the problem unless you are a trained professional.

Faucets are one of the most common fixtures in homes, but they can also be one of the most notorious things inside a home when it comes to plumbing problems. Sometimes they begin to drip and the drip eventually turns into a steady stream of water that is constantly running even when you try to turn it off. This is not only a plumbing problem, but it costs you a lot of money because you are paying for all that water that is constantly running down the drain for no reason whatsoever. It is also very wasteful. Even if a faucet is not constantly dripping or running, you may have a problem with a faucet that is leaking around the base or around the controls for either the hot or the cold water. All of these things warrant a call to a professional plumber.

To make matters worse, some faucets are so old that they cannot be repaired and must be completely replaced. You may run into this problem if you live in a structure that was built several decades ago because faucets were designed in a different fashion than they are today. For instance, it was not uncommon for faucets to be designed several years ago that came in three separate pieces, the main faucet where the water comes out, the control for the cold water and the control for the hot water. Today, faucets are made in a single unit and if you have the old style of faucet, you may find that it is virtually impossible to replace it without replacing the entire sink because new faucets will typically not fit.

Sink repair usually involves unclogging a drain that is allowing the water to back up. However, there are other potential problems that can occur with sinks throughout your home. One problem is that you may find pipes that are leaking underneath the sink. If this goes undetected for any length of time, you can have a mess on your hands as the water continues to puddle underneath the sink. This can ruin anything that you have stored underneath and can also cause mold to grow under your sink. It is a problem that requires a professional plumber to remedy the issue right away. If you live in a home that utilizes plastic sinks as opposed to metal or ceramic, you may also find that the plastic has a tendency to crack rather easily. This can cause the sink itself to leak and it must then be repaired or replaced.

When you consider the complexity that is involved with these types of repairs, it is easy to understand why you should always contact a professional for faucet and sink repair. It is much easier to allow them to handle the problem than it is to tackle it yourself, as you may quickly find that you are in over your head.
