Keeping on top of home maintenance can be an endless task whether you are a homeowner or a landlord and whilst there are some things that you can fix yourself there are instances when a professional is needed. This is often the case with plumbing issues in your home.

Here are some issues you can fix yourself

  • Taps – if you have a washer that has perished in your tap you may be able to remove the tap carefully yourself and replace this.
  • Sealant – if you have leaks around the edge of your bath and shower as a result of the sealant at the edge of the tiles being perished or eroded away you can remove the old sealant with a bit of hard work and replace this with new sealant to create a waterproof seal.

  • Water gushing from upstairs – if you have water leaking through your ceiling from the bathroom above it might be time to call in a plumber to come and find out what the issue is and how it can be fixed. In the meantime turn your water supply off so that you can minimise the damage that occurs.
  • Broken pipes – if you have water coming from any of your pipework you will want to get a professional to come and isolate this area and replace the pipe section for you.
