Both residential and commercial properties can develop bad plumbing systems, through either damage or corrosion that comes with age. Bad plumbing systems can quickly cause significant negative environmental effects and health risks, especially when unnoticed, which is why it is important to have your property’s plumbing inspected periodically as needed or advised by a professional plumber.
