Sink Repair — When It’s Time to Call the Plumber
Your bathroom and kitchen sinks probably don’t get a second thought most days, although they—like all plumbing elements—are some of the most frequently used features in your home. Like many homeowners, you probably take your household sinks for granted—at least until you notice they are not working properly.
Common Sink Problems
Homeowners soon learn that there are many things that can go wrong with a sink, including the following common complaints:
And as with almost any type of problem, the longer it persists, the worse it can become. Adding to the functional nuisance of trying to use an ailing sink are concerns regarding the risk of secondary water damage to the surrounding area if sink repairs are delayed. In fact, it could actually end up being more costly in terms of time and money not to fix the sink when the need arises than to address the issue immediately.
Fortunately for those needing to use the sink, for the aesthetics of your home, and for your personal finances, Apex Plumbing and Sewer, Inc. specializes in all types of sink repair. We offer prompt, courteous service and modern, cost-effective solutions for the full range of sink-related concerns.
Time to Call the Professional Plumber
Attempting “do-it-yourself” remedies without relevant experience in sink repair—or the proper tools—can lead to additional, possibly more severe problems. An accidental flood caused by even the most well-intentioned DIY efforts could result in devastating and costly damage to your home. Another possibility that could foil an attempt to fix the problem yourself is misdiagnosing the problem in the first place. Sometimes the money you might save initially disappears “down the drain” when a sink problem reappears after a temporary but ultimately ineffective reprieve.
While some basic home repair efforts may suffice for minor drips or clogs, there are usually definite signs that you are better off contacting a professional to address problems with your kitchen or bathroom sinks. Call in one of our experienced technicians at Apex Plumbing and Sewer, Inc. if:
- any part of your sink leaks persistently,
- your sink doesn’t drain properly,
- you notice unusual water spots on walls near your sink,
- your sink often exhibits poor water pressure, or
- your sink—or the cabinet beneath your sink—emits a persistent odor.
You’ll be glad you did!
