Homeowners were worried about flooding or overflowing drains, so they contacted us to ensure their plumbing system was in good shape.

There has been extra pressure on household pipes and drainage systems, due to the heavy rainfall in July. Home Cure received numerous calls and requests for emergency plumbing services in the past few week. The main problems was flooding due to burst pipes. Surface water and extremely wet soil from rain, can cause the ground to shift. This can put stress on household pipes which can cause them to crack and collapse. Cracked pipes or pipes that have collapsed, leads to many flood related problems. Getting your pipes and plumbing systems maintained and inspected regularly, will help avoid flooding in your home and the cost and headache of fixing the problem.
