No plumbing system will last forever, but that doesn’t mean you can’t support the longevity of yours. Sometimes plumbing emergencies just happen because pipes age. However, many plumbing problems that could reasonably be called disasters can often be warded off and their risks reduced. bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston serves Sugar Land, TX with a full lineup of professional plumbing services, including maintenance solutions. With good routine maintenance you can reduce the incidence of serious plumbing problems that will cost you far more than annual maintenance. Let our professional plumbers help you keep your plumbing system running efficiently and optimally.
Leaking pipes can be disasters in the making–especially when you don’t notice them right away. Since many of your pipes are under the floor or behind walls, it’s not always possible to know that a pipe is leaking if it’s not visible to the eye. However, if you suspect a leak because you notice wet spots on the wall or see increases in your water bill, you should contact bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston. Our experienced plumbing company can visit your Sugar Land, TX home to perform leak detection service.
If there’s a leak, we can repair or replace the pipe when necessary. Unfortunately, hidden leaks can cause expensive property damage since the water can wreck drywall and wood or cause mold outbreaks. If you have a leak behind a wall or under the floor, our plumbing company will need to access the leak. We always strive to be as minimally invasive as possible. However, it’s important to get to the leak so that the water doesn’t cause structural damage to the home–which would be a disaster. The sooner you contact bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston for service, the sooner we can fix your leaky pipe.
Many customers contact our plumbing company for our drain cleaning service. It’s a good idea to have your drains professionally cleaned by a plumber every other year. If you have a busy household, you might even opt for drain cleaning annually. Drains can become caked with all different sorts of debris, including soap residue, grease, dirt, biofilm, food particles, and more. Debris can get caught in grease or oil in the drain and harden. This can lead to the formation of seriously stubborn clogs.
Routine drain cleaning helps ward off clogs. You might not think that clogs are a disaster, but bad clogs can put pressure on pipes. This pressure can cause leaks or even burst pipes. It’s best to let our plumbing company deal with any clogs you have. If you are frequently plagued by clogs, routine drain cleaning can help you keep your pipes clear.
Keep in mind that you might also need descaling service. This type of plumbing system maintenance is important if you have hard water. Hard water minerals can build up in pipes and cause them to narrow. As the interior of pipes becomes more narrow, clogs are more likely to occur. Our plumbers can visit your Sugar Land, TX home to perform drain cleaning or descaling services as needed.
A wobbly toilet could pose a disaster. The wobbling means the toilet is unstable, and that can be a hazard for people using it. A toilet that wobbles is also more susceptible to leaks and cracks. A leaking toilet could be a disaster–especially if the toilet is on an upper floor. Toilet leaks can cause damage to your floor and ceiling and lead to a terrible mold outbreak. Sometimes toilets simply need their bolts tightened or might need new bolts. Sometimes the toilet is old and needs to be replaced. Our plumbing company can remove and install new toilets. We can also inspect any toilet problems and repair them whenever repairs are possible.
Soggy Lawn and Landscape
If your lawn is soggy where the sewer lawn travels beneath the ground, you might have a small disaster on your hands. A soggy lawn suggests that an underground pipe has ruptured or is badly leaking. This can be an environmental problem if the leak occurs in the sewer line. If the leak occurs in your water main, you’re likely to notice a serious reduction in water pressure.
When the ground becomes overly saturated with water, it’s not good for your property or your nearby home. The heavy, water-soaked soil can put pressure on pipes as well as the home’s foundation. Shifts can occur, and pipes as well as the house’s foundation can develop cracks. If you notice soggy spots on your lawn and it hasn’t rained, invite bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston to inspect your plumbing system. Our plumbing company will bring the tools needed to troubleshoot the issue as quickly as possible.
If you’ve experienced water backups in your home because the sewer line has been clogged by tree roots, you should definitely rely on a plumbing company for annual maintenance. Having your sewer line augered out every year can help you prevent tree roots from causing clogs that lead to wastewater backups inside your house. Wastewater backups are horribly messy. Plus, when there’s a sewer line clog, it prevents your plumbing system from being used. If you have a water backup situation, call our plumbing company right away to schedule a visit.
