Odds are, the kitchen and bathroom are some of the most-used rooms in your home. The reason for this is because these rooms have access to your plumbing system via a variety of faucets. With these faucets, it’s possible for you to cook, clean, and more. However, it’s easy for problems with your faucets to catch you off guard if you don’t know what to look for. That’s why Roy’s, the New York experts on plumbing, want to tell you about some signs you should call us for a faucet replacement.
Here are five reasons to call for a faucet replacement in New York:
Plans for remodeling
There’s always the possibility that you want to replace your faucet even though it works fine. If you’re looking to sell your home, this can be a good idea. Many home buyers consider the kitchen and bathrooms some of the most important considerations in their buying decisions. Because of this, changing your faucets to match your home’s decor can be a great remodeling strategy.
Corrosion and rust
A glaring indicator of a faucet in need of replacement is rust and other corrosion. Faucets can get corroded over time from a combination of certain cleaning chemicals and hard water, which is water with magnesium and dissolved calcium. When corrosion gets bad, it can get into your drinking water, making it change color and smell/taste strange.
Even an older faucet can still run fine. However, it’s still worth considering a replacement if it’s old. Each type of faucet has their own expected lifespan, and you should consult the manufacturer or manual to determine yours. If you’re unable to get a clear date, a good rule of thumb is to go with fifteen years maximum.
Leaks and mold
Even a small leak can be a big problem. The constant leaking uses water, which translates into higher water bills. In addition, leaving leaks alone can help promote the growth of mold, which can cause health problems via their spores.
You should keep a close eye on your faucets to make sure there are no mineral build-ups on them. You can often find them on the inside and around the fixtures. If left untreated, the build-up can cause major damage or even necessitate a replacement.
