Kitchens and bathrooms are some of the most important rooms in most houses because they’re connected to plumbing. With the help of faucets, homeowners are capable of using clean water to cook, clean, and live comfortably. However, having water pumped to your home can become a problem if a faucet breaks. Knowing when it’s time to call for a faucet replacement can save you from dealing with water damage in your kitchen or bathroom. As one of Pennsylvania’s best kitchen and bathroom remodeling companies, we can tell you what to look for so you can keep your kitchen and bathroom dry.
Here are five signs that you should get a faucet replacement:
No faucet lasts forever, but treating them well can keep them working in their winter years. However, any faucet nearing the end of its life should be considered for replacement. Your faucet’s manual or manufacturer can give you a precise lifespan for your faucet. If you can’t get a solid date, most last an average of fifteen years.
Corrosion and rust
Rusty, corroded faucets are obvious candidates for replacement. Over an extended time, faucets can get worn and damaged by cleaning chemicals and hard water. This can often cause problems with the drinking water when the rust gets in the water. The only viable way to fix this problem is by replacing the whole faucet. Installing a water softener can help you alleviate this issue to a degree.
Leaks and mold
Compared to some of the other problems on this list, leaks may seem like a low-key problem for a faucet to have. However, leaks can cause you to use more water, raising your water bills. Also, leaky faucets help propagate mold and other fungi. Not only is mold capable of damaging your sink further, but its spores are known to have negative health effects.
Mineral build-ups are only a real problem for homeowners with hard water. The build-ups most often form inside and around the fixture. They’re capable of damaging your faucet and serious build-ups can ruin the entire faucet. Water softeners can help prevent these minerals from building up.
