Dripping noises can sure be frustrating. Most homeowners will agree that the sound of a dripping faucet in the kitchen or bathroom is certainly annoying and frustrating. They will further agree that when those dripping sounds are coming from your wall pipes its not only frustrating but scary as well. Here at Steve Mull Plumbing we understand how frustrating leaking pipes can be, no matter where they are located. Our team of skilled professionals stands ready to meet all your plumbing needs.
Pay Attention and Address the Issue
Leaking pipes in your walls indicate a problem of some sort which is why it is so important to pay attention to the problem and call in the professionals to solve the issue at hand. If you have a slow leak that is left unattended, the water dripping within the walls can cause a good deal of damage over time to not only your walls, but the flooring and the ceiling right below the floor. Water can easily cause rotting as well as mold and mildew infestations, all of which can be very harmful to your home and family.
With that said, our team cannot emphasize enough how important it is to address the leaking wall pipes sooner rather than later to avoid any damage to your home’s structure or even health issues with your family. Here at Steve Mull Plumbing we care about our clients and want to help clients understand the importance of addressing plumbing issues as they arise. The longer you wait to resolve a leak or other plumbing issue, the greater the damage and repair costs will be.
What is the Source of Leaks and Drips in the Wall?
Leaking pipes that exist in the walls are not as uncommon as you may think. Typically, the culprit is the piping material or the age of the home and plumbing system. Many old homes are designed with cast iron or galvanized steel plumbing pipes. These materials can easily corrode over time, thereby resulting in plumbing leaks. If your home has this type of a plumbing system constructed with these materials, we highly recommend you have your plumbing inspected. Not only can material corrosion lead to leaks in the wall pipes, but it can also result in lead in your drinking water.
Homes that are designed with copper pipes or PVC fare much better than homes with steel pipes. However, these materials can also present with problems such as expanded pipes that burst during freezing temperatures. Newer homes are constructed with PEX piping which is much stronger and rigid. It will not corrode like other piping materials and presents with a much safer rating.
