Leaky pipes in your Lake Latonka home can occur under your kitchen or bathroom sink or even in the walls of your home. When you let a leaky pipe go untaken care of, problems can soon arise. If you have a leaky pipe under your sink, this can cause water damage to your cabinets and floors. If you have leaky pipes in your walls, this can cause serious damage to the structure of your home whether it is made of drywall or some other material. Typically, reconstruction is required when water damage occurs inside of the wall. If it goes untreated, mold can grow and create an even bigger issue for a homeowner in the long run.

What to Do Until a Plumber Comes

If you have a leaky pipe and are unsure of what to do, call a plumber. Until the plumber arrives, according to American Plumbing Services, there are a few things you can do. Here a few quick tips to temporarily patch a leaky pipe:

  • Stop the water flow by shutting off your home’s main shut-off valve.
  • Wipe the pipe off and patch the pipe. Clean surrounding areas to prevent further damage.
  • Tighten nearby joints.
  • Try using Epoxy putty to patch it up!
