5 Major Reasons to Call a Plumber

Bubbly drain

Ideally, if you’re having any type of plumbing problem in your home you’ll make sure to contact a plumber for professional service. We really discourage our customers to try to DIY their own plumbing services or to go without service because they’d like to save a little money. There’s really no plumbing problem too big or too small for a professional plumbing team.

If you have a big problem on your hands and you need an emergency plumber in Frederick, MD then contact our team today. If you’re unsure if the problem you’re experiencing is something that qualifies as “emergency plumbing” make sure that you reference our list below. Plumbing isn’t always a clear service and it will help you decide what’s urgent and what isn’t.

If You Have These Problems Make Sure You Pick Up the Phone

Dripping Faucets

Having a faucet drip endlessly in your home is annoying all on its own and it becomes an even bigger problem when it raises the price of your water bill significantly. Not a lot of people consider this an “urgent” emergency on their own, but we do. All those droplets really add up over time. If you can’t seem to fix this leaking faucet on your own or the task always seems to end up at the bottom of your to-do list, make sure that you contact a plumber from our team to schedule an appointment.

Slow/ Clogged Drains

Does water linger in your sink when you wash your hands? A slow or clogged drain is a problem in any home. The last thing that you want to do in this situation is to buy a chemical drain cleaner. Chemical drain cleaners are terrible for your plumbing system and often result in a myriad of other plumbing issues. Make the smart decision and reach out for the help of a professional.

Leaky Pipes

Age, constant use, and the extreme heat and cold we experience in Frederick on a cycle throughout the year can really wear down the metal of your pipes. If you notice that your water pressure has decreased or that your bill has risen, make sure that you also keep an eye out for any wet spots on your ground or ceiling.

Running Toilets

A running toilet is another one of those problems that are definitely annoying but seemingly benign. In actuality though, a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day. If you call a professional plumber to service your home it’s an incredibly easy fix.

Water Heater

The water heater in your home probably has a lifespan of about eight to twelve years. If your showers aren’t getting hot enough, not staying hot enough, or just never have hot water, make sure that you contact our team. We can guide you through the process of replacement or perform a flawless repair.

There are many reasons to contact a plumber. A good rule of thumb to follow is: any plumbing problem you’re having (big or small) is a good reason to contact a professional. Contact our team today to schedule an appointment with our team at Mallick Plumbing & Heating.
