Leaking Spigot at Your Home

5/11/2022 (Permalink)

Water spigot A leaking water spigot can cause significant damage to your home.

Summer is fast approaching, which means acts associated with using your outside hose become more common. Whether that be watering your grass, watering your plants, or filling up a pool. With this becomes the danger of discovering your outside water spigot froze over the winter and cracked, leading to possible water damage in your home the first time you turn it on. Often times, most people do not realize there is a problem until after it is far too late. Having someone in the house while you turn it on for the first time to watch and see if they notice anything can go a long way in limiting damage. If you discover there is a leak, you should use the shut off valve located in the house to turn off the water supply. Immediately contact a plumber to have them out to inspect the spigot. If water damage has taken place, be sure to call SERVPRO right away to ensure the project gets taken care of efficiently and correctly.
