A leaky faucet may not seem like that big of a deal. It’s just the occasional drip of water down the drain. If you can’t hear it, it’s not bothering anyone. Well, that leak can end up dripping out gallons of water every day. This little, single drop of water may end up costing you hundreds of dollars of extra water usage over the course of a year. That’s more than enough to have the leaky faucet repaired before it turns out to be a bigger problem. There are different culprits behind leaky faucets, which is why you need to have it serviced and corrected sooner rather than later. At Airco Service, Inc., you have access to experienced, certified and licensed professionals who can correctly fix your leaky faucet problem.
Identify the Problem
Leaky faucets can stem from a number of different problems. First, something might be loose within the fixture itself. This may require a repair, or it might just need some tightening within the fixture. Sometimes a seal or stopper will dry and crack, which prevents the seal from working correctly. This is a fast and simple repair as well. However, other times the repair is much more substantial. The fixture itself may be damaged and need to be replaced. There could also be problems with the plumbing under the sink. If this is the case, it needs to be corrected here as well. Without the aid of an expert, it is difficult to know exactly what the problem is.
On the Spot Repairs
Typically, your leaky faucets can be repaired on the spot. This way, you don’t need to worry about future water leaks (or even having the sink shut off to prevent further leaking). If you do need a new fixture, it’s possible to select a new design for your kitchen or bathroom and then have the new equipment installed.
A leaky faucet will, over time, cost you hundreds of dollars in extra water consumption. It can also develop into additional sink problems, such as leaking under the sink and into the cabinetry (which in turn causes mold and causes the wood and other building materials around it to deteriorate). In order to avoid expensive future repairs and save on your water bills today, now is the time to take advantage of expert faucet repair services by giving the team at Airco Service Inc. a call.
