Finding a plumber you can really trust is not an easy task. Luckily, American Mechanical makes it easy. Our company was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to honest, high-quality, fair plumbing services. Your plumbing system is integral to your home or business and without it, everything comes to a screeching halt. Whether you need help locating a leak, repairing your pipes, cleaning your drains, or repairing your water heater, our Portsmouth plumbing team is here to help.
Signs You Need Drain Cleaning
Because our drains are responsible for the important task of transferring wastewater out of our homes, it is incredibly important that we take care of them. Drain cleaning is the best way to keep your pipes free and clear of buildup and blockages caused by hair, grease, soap scum, tree roots, paper towels, dirt, food scraps, debris, and more.
If any of the following apply to you, its time to schedule drain cleaning:
- Your toilet is frequently clogged
- Water backs up into your sinks, showers, or tubs
- You can’t remember the last time your drains were cleaned
- One or more drains in your home are slow or completely clogged
- Your water pressure is low
- There are gurgling sounds or foul smells coming from your drains
Our drain cleaning professionals use advanced tools and technology to safely and effectively clear away any blockages in your drains and keep your system running smoothly.
Common Water Heater Repairs
With decades of service experience, you can trust that American Mechanical can handle any water heater repair you may need. We know you rely on your water heater every day for washing dishes, taking showers, bathing your children, running washer, and more, which is why we are here to get your system back up and running right away.
We can repair any water heater issue you may be experiencing such as:
- Low water pressure
- Insufficient hot water supply
- Discolored, rusty water
- Water with an odd odor
- Water leaking from the tank
- Strange noises coming from the tank
Your hot water is responsible for providing fresh, clean, hot water, and when it fails to do that, you need fast service. We recommend never putting off water heater repairs as even the most minor issues can quickly worsen and lead to serious damage.
How to Tell If You Have a Hidden Leak
Plumbing leaks can cause serious damage to your home, especially when they go undetected for a long period of time. In order to avoid experiencing major water damage, it is a good idea to become aware of the signs of a hidden leak.
- An extra-green patch of grass on your lawn
- Mold or mildew growth
- Musty odors
- A spike in your water bills
- Warped walls, ceilings, or floors
- Water-stained walls, ceilings, or floors
The moment you suspect that you have a hidden leak in your home, reach out to our leak detection experts. We have advanced technology that allows us to locate any leaks and make fast, reliable repairs.
Preventing Frozen Pipes
Each winter, our team gets plenty of calls about frozen pipes. Not only can frozen pipes leave you without running water but they can also cause a serious amount of damage. Frozen pipes freeze water as it passes through, which leads to blockages and a buildup of pressure. This pressure buildup can cause your pipes to burst and damage your property. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to avoid frozen pipes. You can insulate the pipe in your attic and crawl space, keep your faucets open, seal any cracks that might let cold air in, keep your garage closed, and keep kitchen and bathroom cabinets open.
If you are experiencing frozen or burst pipes, our pipe repair experts are here to help. We will quickly locate the source of the problem and repair your pipes before any major damage takes place.
