Boo! Is a Halloween Ghost the Cause of Your Home’s Pipes Making Noises?
Are you frequently hearing strange sounds like banging, clattering, or hammering from your walls at night? Have you noticed gurgling noises emanating from your kitchen sink drain or the sound of dripping water that you can’t locate the source of? If so, while your initial thought might be that your home is haunted by ghosts, these sounds are actually indicative of plumbing issues within your residence. Typically, these noises are more noticeable at night when there are fewer background noises, such as when you turn off the TV and prepare for bed.
Ignoring these sounds and dismissing them as ghosts can result in more costly plumbing repairs down the line. Therefore, it’s important to locate the source and cause of the problem. After identifying the reason for the noises, you can determine whether it’s something that you can address yourself or if you need assistance from professional plumbing companies, such as our team here at MET Plumbing.
