faucet replacement in Massachusetts by Milltown

Out of all the rooms in your house, the kitchen and bathroom are some of the most commonly used. Both of these rooms have access to your plumbing system through faucets. These faucets allow you to cook and clean with clean water piped into your home. However, it’s easy for problems with your faucets to creep up and catch you unawares. That’s why it’s so important to be able to tell when your faucet needs to be replaced. As one of the best home service companies in Massachusetts, MillTown can help you know when you’ll need to schedule a faucet replacement.

Here are 5 reasons you should call us to arrange a faucet replacement in Massachusetts:

Old age

It’s possible that the faucet you’re looking at is in good shape. However, if it’s near the end of its lifespan, you should still consider changing it out. Every different type of faucet has different lifespans and warranties. Because of this, you should consult the manufacturer or the manual to see how old it can get. If you can’t get a solid date, fifteen years tends to be when you should replace your sink.

Built-up minerals

It’s a good idea to regularly check your faucets for signs of mineral build-ups. The deposits tend to form inside and around the fixture and can cause major damage if left untreated. If the build-up gets serious enough, you may have to remove the entire faucet and order a replacement.

Corrosion and rust

Probably the most obvious sign of a failing faucet is if it’s rusted or corroded. Over an extended period of time, hard water and certain cleaning chemicals can damage your faucet. The corroded metal can then get into your drinking water, making it look and taste strange.

Remodeling plans

Sometimes you may not be looking to replace your faucet because it isn’t working. A house’s kitchen and bathrooms are some of the biggest selling points when the house is for sale. Because of this, replacing a faucet to match a room’s decor is a valid reason to shop around for new faucets. Simply replacing your faucets can be a great way to improve your home’s value or redesign a room.

Mold and leaks

Leaks may not seem like a problem that requires immediate attention. However, every drip from that leak represents an increase in your water bills. In addition, unresolved leaks can promote the growth of mold and similar moisture-loving fungi. Not only can the mold do further damage to your home, but the mold spores can cause a variety of health issues.
