Mister Quik Home Services in Plainfield has a team of certified plumbing specialists who are capable of tackling any plumbing issue with ease. Here are some of our clients’ most common plumbing issues.
Slab Leak Detection And Repair
Water lines can be found in the foundation of homes as well as in the walls. These lines are often made of copper, and those copper pipes can be impacted by factors like aging, temperature, and settling. When a water line located under a home’s foundation begins to leak, it is called a slab leak. Slab leaks can be identified by looking for the following three indicators.
- A raised, dome-shaped area on the ground floor.
- An unexplained increase in monthly water bills.
- Cracks appearing in the interior and exterior walls.
Most slab leaks are caused by either foundation issues or corroding pipes. Slabs leaks are difficult to find and fix, so it is best to call Mister Quik Home Services if you see any of these three warning signs. Our certified plumbers will come to your home and evaluate the damage. All repair work is covered by a five-year warranty under our SHAPE plan.
Your home’s plumbing system includes toilets, faucets, water supply lines, and sewer lines. In other words, there are lots of ways things can go wrong. If you notice low water levels, leaking, clogs that cannot be cleared with a plunger, low water pressure, or discolored water coming from your faucets, give us a call. Our team can perform inspections on your entire plumbing system and identify any potential issues before they become expensive emergencies. The plumbing team will work with you to schedule and perform any repairs or new toilet and faucet installations. You will pay a fair price for all work performed by the experienced team at Mister Quik Home Services.
The typical water heater has a lifespan of 12 to 15 years. If you find the hot water temperature is fluctuating or, worse, you do not have any hot water at all, it may be because your water heater is damaged. Our team will inspect your water heater and provide an honest assessment of whether it is better to fix it or replace it. If a replacement is necessary, we offer extended warranties on several trusted brands of both tank and tankless water heaters.
Water Quality Solutions
One common household water issue is hard water. Hard water is water that is high in mineral content. These minerals can cause corrosion in water pipes and other components of your plumbing system as well as leading to some appliances degrading faster than normal. Hard water can be addressed by adding a water softener or reverse osmosis filtration system to your home. Lowering the mineral content in your water helps limit the wear and tear on the plumbing system.
Pipe Maintenance and Repair
If you have spent a winter in Plainfield, you know that frozen pipes are a common nuisance during the winter. The process of pipes freezing and thawing causes pipes to become brittle, increasing the likelihood that they will rupture causing flooding and other types of home damage. If your home needs re-piping Mister Quik Home Services is the team to call.
When it comes to sump pumps, sewer lines, and wells for most homeowners it is out of sight, out of mind. This lack of knowledge can make troubleshooting issues difficult for homeowners.
