April Showers Bring Plumbing Issues - Pekin IL & Peoria IL
Spring is officially here, but we all know that spring comes with a lot of rain. While rain is great for our planet, it can cause flooding a a lot of plumbing issues in our homes but thankfully here at Central Heating, Air & Plumbing we offer a variety of plumbing services for any of your upcoming needs.

We break down our plumbing services into three categories. The first one is bathroom plumbing and that encompasses anything from slow flushing to faucet issues. The second service is home plumbing and that would include just about anything in the home that is not in the bathroom, for example galvanized pipes, pressure issues, or something not easily diagnosed. Allow our team to use our new technology to pinpoint the exact area of your plumbing problems and get them resolved at a fraction of the price. The third service is commercial plumbing. This type of service would be perfect for all larger jobs in the Pekin IL and surrounding areas. However, no matter the seriousness of the issue, Central Heating, Air, & Plumbing is here to help.

After attempting to work with many other contractors in the area, I could tell I was a fly on the wall to them. Most of the time I was booked weeks into the future, and treated as if I disappeared, they simply would not care. The level of comfort granted by this business just cannot be experienced anywhere else. This must be how it is when you build your entire company of family values. (Joe L.)

There are a couple of things to watch out for in the next couple of rainy months that might mess up your plumbing. The first one is flooding due to lack of outdoor drainage. Heavy rain often causes water to accumulate in low points and dips throughout our yard. However, if there is nowhere for this water to drain, these pools of rainwater can become a serious problem. Outdoor flooding could indicate several different problems, and discovering the true issue depends largely on where the water is and whether the proper drains are in place. Outside flooding might indicate a lack of proper drainage on the property. If your property does not correctly channel the rainwater, for instance, your driveway, basement steps, or walkway might flood. This type of flooding could compromise the stability of your driveway, deck, or the underlying foundation of your home. An area drain could solve this issue by providing proper drainage at the low points on your property and carrying water away from your home. Another thing to watch out for is pipes bursting from the blockage. If you notice that your sink water is colored, your water tastes coppery, or a mildew smell permeates your home, you might have experienced a cracked or broken pipe. When rainwater pools and has nowhere to go, it puts pressure on your pipes and could cause them to break, especially if the pipes are old or damaged. As a result, the freshwater that flows into your home might be tainted by soil and other contaminants.

If you notice any of these issues, please give Central Heating, Air, & Plumbing a call immediately. Our dedicated team will help you set up an appointment to resolve your issues and turn those ugly rain showers into flowers!
