It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s time to share some spooky stories. But you should know, not all scary stories involve ghosts or monsters! In fact, some involve everyday issues that can happen right inside your home. Below, we’ll share a few plumbing problems that are downright scary. Just remember not to panic- all of these problems can be fixed with a professional plumber’s help!
1- Pipes That Go Bump In The Night
Are your pipes making scary noises? This problem is more common than you might think. Pipe noises might sound like pops, hisses, or squeals. You might also just hear a general banging noise in your pipes. Changes in water pressure or a loose pipe are usually to blame for these spooky sounds. Call your plumber, and they will be able to fix the problem in no time.
2- Scary Smells
Unpleasant smells are one of the most common plumbing problems. Of course, lots of different things can cause these smells. If a garbage odor is coming from your garbage disposal, drain, sink, or bathtub, then you might have a clog or another pipe issue. Have your plumber come to the look. Just know that other odors can be caused by a more serious problem. If you smell gas, skip the plumber and call your utility company right away. These leaks can be life-threatening if not treated.
3- Jack-O-Lantern Mishaps
Most of us love carving up pumpkins before Halloween. But while this is a fun activity for people, it’s not so fun for your plumbing system. Pumpkin “guts” are stringy and hard to break down. Plus, they often contain leftover seeds. These can both damage your drain and pipes. If your jack-o-lantern carving has caused a clogged pipe or garbage disposal, then call us for assistance.
