Frozen/Leaking Pipe Repair and Prevention In Western Springs
Sometimes the things you can't see happening inside your house are the most worrisome. Frozen pipes in winter or leaking pipes anytime can quietly go about their business without you even knowing and do an enormous amount of damage. Trust Dahme Mechanical Industries to help make the repairs needed in the Western Springs area.
While these problems are not always obvious, they do leave clues you should respond to. For instance, if you turn on your sink or shower faucet in wintertime and notice a loss of pressure, it may be due to a frozen pipe. If so, inspect all exposed pipes and if you see frozen water in the vicinity, turn off the water main and call Dahme right away. If your home is older, we can also help provide preventive services to lower the risk of this ever happening. One important tip to keep in mind — when you're away, make sure you keep your house set to at least 55 degrees.
Western Springs Sump Pump Installation and Repair
If you own a home in Western Springs, there may come a day when you need either to install a sump pump or repair your existing system. Sump pumps are a vital defense against basement flooding, which can produce a devastating and heartbreaking set of damages.
The team at Dahme Mechanical Industries can help you select the right sump pump for your size of basement and do the hard work of installing it. We can also make recommendations for a battery backup, which protects you from flooding during a power outage. Let us help you install a backup sump pump to give you peace of mind.
Garbage Disposal Replacement and Repair
Garbage disposals are handy additions to any kitchen, as they help break down food so it can be washed away. Over the years, though, garbage disposals break down and, like any appliance, need a level of ongoing maintenance.
The experts at Dahme Mechanical Industries would be happy to inspect your Western Springs garbage disposal and provide preventive care or repairs to put the device back in working order. Once you have used a garbage disposal, it's a major inconvenience to do without.
Sewer and Drain Cleaning Service
If your drains seem to run slowly in Western Springs and you've already tried an over-the-counter snake or drain fluid to clear the blockage, something more industrial-sized might be the right solution. Dahme Mechanical Industries has the tools and the expertise to address the problem by rodding your sewer.
This is a complicated process that could involve several solutions. It might take high-pressure sewage jetting, sewer rodding and drain blockage services, or another type of professional-level solution. The important thing is that if you notice persistently slow draining, don't wait for things to get worse. It may suggest larger problems with a sewer line that can be repaired affordably and quickly. We'll conduct a camera inspection and prescribe the best solution.
Backflow Testing and RPZ Valve Installation
Another area of annual plumbing service that many homeowners overlook is backflow testing. Dahme Mechanical Industries recommends testing once a year to make sure you're free of any risk of contaminating your general water supply.
The way this happens is through a reduced pressure zone device. All homes with an irrigation system must have an RPZ to guard against contamination. The RPZ prevents that from happening, but they must be certified each year. The professionals at Dahme Mechanical Industries will inspect your RPZ in Western Springs and make sure you are not the source of any backflow.
