Unfortunately, the longer that plumbing problems stick around, generally speaking, the more damage they’re going to do.
For example, a leaky pipe creates mold and a dripping faucet can drive up your water bill and waste hundreds of gallons of water each year.
So what are you going to do about it?
At Hammock, we’ve worked with a lot of homeowners who had plumbing problems. And this is what we recommend doing…
Locate The Source Of The Problem — The first step is to try and figure out where your plumbing problem is coming from. This means listening for dripping sounds, looking for evidence of a leak, checking for running toilets, watching your water meter, and identifying which drains are having the most trouble. The more that you can learn about your plumbing problems, the less it’ll cost you when the plumber comes to fix it.
Hire a Plumber — Unless you’re experienced with fixing plumbing issues, your next step is to hire a plumber. Fortunately, this isn’t super expensive and usually costs around $200 to $500 depending on the severity of your problem. And don’t worry if you don’t know exactly what’s wrong with your plumbing before hiring them; they can help diagnose as well. Just make sure to check the reviews before you pay anyone anything!
Or Sell Your Home As-Is For Cash — Is your house causing more headaches than it’s worth? Sometimes, it’s just easier to sell your home rather than try and fix it. Unfortunately, you can’t sell your home the traditional way if it’s got plumbing problems. That’s why, at Hammock, we buy houses as-is for cash in Brandon, Florida. If you want to get a fair cash offer on your home, give us a call at (813) 324-3131!
