Portland Plumbers Help Cure Winter Flooding Woes
Living in the Pacific Northwest, we are all accustomed to those rainy days that seem to last forever. As any Portland plumber can tell you, when the dreary weather continues for long periods, causing local rivers and streets to flood, many homeowners also find their home drainage systems buckling under the pressure. In such cases, basements and crawl spaces can flood due to overtaxed or insufficient soil drainage and/or rain drains.
When leaky pipes or excessive rain causes flooding in your home, the best thing you can do is shut off the main water line and call a Portland plumber for help. At 3 Mountains Plumbing, we take pride in our expert broken pipe repair service. We’ll determine the source of the flooding – whether it’s due to leaky pipes, a sewer backup, or excessive rain – and get the problem under control as quickly as possible.
When flooding occurs, it’s critical to act immediately; a leak of this kind can cause enormous damage as the water penetrates the exterior of your home’s foundation. The moisture seeps everywhere, including under your flooring and carpets where it can cause rot and decay as well as mold and mildew growth – which can translate into health hazards as well as potentially thousands of dollars in damage. As a top-notch Portland plumber service since 2000, we’ve helped many homeowners avert disaster by quickly repairing leaky pipes and other flooding disasters.
With winter rains in full swing, it’s important to keep a close eye on your home plumbing. In addition to repairing leaky pipes, our Portland plumbers can assist homeowners with other winter-related concerns. Whether you need your water heater serviced, your basement drained, or your frozen pipes repaired, 3 Mountains Plumbing can help keep Portland’s plumbing running smoothly as the unpredictable weather continues.
