Water damage to a home can be irreparable, causing you to rip out carpet and flooring, purchase new furniture, or take down walls to replace insulation and framework. This is why it is very important for you to only trust licensed plumbers in Findlay Ohio with plumbing (and gas) repairs in your home. Below are three repairs that should require a licensed professional’s opinion and subsequent repair.
Replacing Your Water Heater
A water heater, on average, needs to be replaced every twelve to fifteen years. When the time comes for your water heater to be replaced (and upgraded), you should hire a licensed plumber to complete the installation. Not only are water heaters very heavy, they are also often located in hard to reach places, like an attic. A professional will have the equipment necessary to install a new one safely and have the knowledge to check for leaks.
Unclogging Your Main Line
The main line in a plumbing system can build a clog, which eventually will cause your water to back up, and finally, flood your home. Clogs in the main line are frequently deep underground or deep in the pipe, making a typical plunger or snake drain useless for fixing the problem. A plumber from a reputable company will have a special camera to find the clog and the equipment to unclog it quickly and efficiently.
Repairing Gas Lines
It surprises some people to know that plumbers are qualified to repair and install new gas lines. A gas leak is a serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately, so a professional technician needs to come to your house as soon as possible to inspect the lines.
A licensed and properly insured plumber should be someone you know who to call in the event of an emergency or quickly needed repair.
