You likely use your bathroom and kitchen the most out of all the rooms in your home. These rooms both share a connection to your plumbing system via faucets, letting you cook and clean. However, it’s very likely that problems will show up and you’ll need to arrange a faucet replacement for your Kansas home. Failing to notice when you need a replacement can lead to major water damage for your home. As one of the best home service companies in Kansas, KB Complete can help you learn how to tell when you need help.
Here are five signs you should call for a faucet replacement for your Kansas home:
You should regularly check your faucets to make sure aren’t any minerals building upon them. The deposits generally form inside and around the fixture. If not treated, it can cause major damage or even ruin the faucet, requiring a complete replacement.
Plans for remodeling
There are times you want to replace your faucet even though it works fine. Kitchens and bathrooms are major points of consideration for people buying a house. Because of this, changing your faucets can help you improve the price of your house. In addition, changing your faucets to better suit your room’s decor is also a fine idea.
Depending on what kind of faucet you have, it may have served you well for many years. However, you should always consider swapping out old plumbing when it nears the end of its lifespan. Each type of faucet has its own lifespans and warranties to consider. Check the manual or call the manufacturer to get a better idea of how long the faucet can last. If you can’t get a solid date, we’d say fifteen years is a good estimate for the average faucet lifespan.
Leaks and mold
It’s not uncommon to see leaks, and it’s even less uncommon to see people disregard small leaks. However, leaking faucets, no matter how weak, can cause your water bills to rise. In addition, leaks can promote the growth of mold and other fungi, which bring their own health risks.
Rust and other corrosion
One of the most obvious signs your faucet needs a replacement is the presence of rust and other corrosion. Various cleaning products and hard water can, over time, damage your faucet. The corroded metal can then get into your drinking water, making it look and taste strange. If this is what requires you to change your faucets, consider a water softener to reduce the hard water in your home.
