Most of the time, plumbing problems manifest themselves in relatively simple, non-urgent issues like a slow-draining sink or a toilet that needs a quick plunge or two. On the other hand, you may sometimes face some downright emergencies that result in large amounts of water leaking in the house, a lack of water flow or drainage to the entire house, or a total breakdown of major water fixtures.
Like most things in our home, we take our plumbing systems for granted, at least until there's a problem. Winter is the time of year we're more likely than ever to see plumbing issues, and the last thing you want to deal with on Christmas morning is a burst pipe, right?
Mold growth underneath kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room sinks can be caused by a number of factors. Inadequate ventilation, improper air flow, high levels of humidity, and plumbing leaks are all common culprits. While some levels of humidity are pretty much a given in your home, plugging up those plumbing leaks before they do any more damage can save you money on your water bill and keep mold in check.
