Does Your Faucet Need Repair? Here Are Signs of Faucet Damage

Are you losing sleep over a leaky faucet? If that constant “drip, drip, drip” from your faucet is keeping you up at night, reach out to American Rooters for help. Leaky faucets are often overlooked until they cause significant damage. If left unrepaired, a leaky faucet can lead to all sorts of problems, such as an expensive water bill, home damage, and environmental damage. So, how do you know it’s time to call a professional to handle your plumbing problems? Here are the signs that indicate you need professional help.

What Is a Faulty Faucet?

A leak is one of the common signs that a faucet needs to be repaired. However, there are a few other indicators that signal faucet problems that need to be addressed before they get out of hand.

Screeching faucet

If your faucet squeaks every time you turn it on, it might be from wear and tear. This doesn’t always require replacement. With the help of a good plumber, your faucet can work smoothly in no time.

Leaky faucet

Does your faucet drip after you turn off the handle? Is water leaking from the base of the faucet? If you
have high water pressure in your area, it can cause dripping. Replacing your faucet with a new one won’t
solve the problem, and it’s not usually necessary for such a minor issue. By hiring a professional to repair faucets in your home, you can get your kitchen and bathroom in tiptop shape in no time.

Irregular water discharge

Faulty aerators or diverter valves might cause irregular water discharge. That unpredictable water flow can be very infuriating and messy.

Kitchen Faucet Repairs

Knowing the signs of a faulty faucet enables you to address the slightest problems, preventing them from escalating into something bigger. By stopping the drips in your sink, you can conserve water and save a few bucks every month for utilities.

Not everyone has the tools or expertise to repair a faulty faucet. If you aren’t equipped to repair your own faucet, don’t fret because that’s what we’re here for. We offer professional plumbing services across Atlanta. At American Rooters, we repair faucets using nothing but high-quality parts and materials and the highest of standards.

When Is It Time for a Faucet Replacement?

Faucets might be built to last a long time, but they aren’t built to last forever. If your faucet is beyond repair, schedule an appointment with a professional plumber and get a new one installed.

Old faucets

Kitchen and bathroom faucets can last up to 20 years. If, say, you’re inheriting an old house, you might
consider getting new faucets installed. One of the tell-tale signs that your faucets are nearing the end of
their lifespan is when they require constant repairs.

Internal rusting

Rust tends to build up internally before it starts showing around the base or spigot. If water doesn’t
come out as soon as you turn on the faucet, it can be a sign of internal rusting. Your faucet needs to be
replaced in such cases. If you leave it unattended, your faucet will become less effective over time. Plus,
it’ll be more prone to leaks.

Mold

Constant leaking can lead to mold growth in your bathroom. That black slime in faucets isn’t only unsightly but also bad for your health. If your bathroom has mold, you should get a faucet installment.

Mineral deposits

Due to hard water, minerals can build up within the plumbing fixture of your faucet. They look white and
crusty, and they’re difficult to clean. If they’re clogging up the faucets, it’s best to get them replaced.

Damaged sink

Some bathroom sinks age poorly, leading to scratches, dents, and cracks. If you’re getting a new unit installed, that usually means your bathroom faucets would need replacements as well.

Upgrading Your Bathroom
