Monday, April 29th, 2019

Never Ignore a Leaky Kitchen Sink

Monday, March 4th, 2019

Of course, the sound of constant dripping can be quite annoying, but isn’t easier to just tune it out? It may be easy to brush off as “no big deal”, however, a leaky kitchen sink is never something to ignore. Your kitchen sink is pushed to its limits every day, and we often take for granted just how much it can endure. You utilize it for everyday washing, cooking, cleaning, and drinking, making it the most used faucet in your home. But, this repeated use can quickly create problems in the faucet mechanism, leading to a problematic drip.

If your kitchen faucet is leaking, do not hesitate to contact a professional plumber in Yelm. A leaky kitchen sink can lead to serious problems, including water damage to your home and property. Plus, any leak is extremely wasteful, which can cause monthly water bills to sky-rocket. In case you aren’t yet convinced, we have outlined some of the reasons why you need to call a plumber ASAP.

We don’t really need to worry about much as far as weather-related incidents. One wintertime problem you should be aware of though, is the threat of frozen pipes. And no, it’s not too early to begin thinking about this and preparing for potential plumbing issues.

Historically, our temperatures rarely dip below freezing, but it does happen. This is a reason to be even more diligent about this issue, because even though we don’t think about it as much as homeowners in colder climates, just a few days of temperatures at 30° or below this winter can result in frozen—and subsequently burst—pipes in your home. So, what can you do to prevent this?
