After a flood, mold is one of the most difficult problems to treat. It’s crucial to address mold with a plumber any time it appears, since it can cause serious respiratory problems for your family if left untreated. You will likely need expert help with mold removal, but there are some basic things you can do to lessen the impact.
When you see the telltale black-blue signs of mold growing on your wall, start by removing everything you can that hasn’t been affected by the mold. Mold grows quickly, so salvage as much as possible. If you do see mold on anything, discard it. Next have a plumber repair any leaks that could be contributing to the problem. Clean the entire area with fungicide and run a dehumidifier to suction out any remaining moisture.
If your home is flooding because of broken pipes, call Reliance Plumbing 24 hours per day. We can help with repairs and clean-up so you can get back to normal. Call our expert plumbers at (773) 467-7842.

Septic systems constantly work in the background to keep your home clean and comfortable, but when they do fail things can get very messy very quickly without professional plumbing services. Of course, it’s always better to avoid running into a plumbing emergency in the first place. Take a look at these common culprits behind septic system failure:
Clogs are a common plumbing issue in most homes, but they can become a major problem if they occur deep inside the septic system. Solids accumulate inside the tank over time, creating a sludge layer that will have to be periodically pumped. Garbage disposals in particular can introduce significant amounts of grease and indigestible solids into the tank, leading to premature clogs.
Heavy-duty household cleaners may help with the occasional clog, but unlike homes with public sewage utilities, these extremely corrosive chemicals stay in your septic system and can damage filters, seals, and pipes in the tank and drainfield. Septic tanks contain significant amounts of bacteria that break down biological waste, but they can’t withstand strong chemicals such as paint and toxic cleaners.
The design of septic tanks only allows them to passively process relatively small amounts of water at any given time. When large amounts of water are flushed into the system at once, it can agitate solid particles and cause a major clog inside the tank or drainfield pipes. Be sure to consult with a professional plumber if you have a water-heavy appliance such as a hot tub or water softener.
It is recommended to have your system inspected and pumped by a professional plumber every three to five years, and B. Bohmann Plumbing has the experience and resources to help Milwaukee residents protect their homes and businesses from major plumbing issues.

Plumbing is one of the most important utilities in your home’s infrastructure, and even a minor problem can lead to hundreds or thousands of dollars in repair and restoration expenses. However, not all professional plumbers provide the same service, and without basic research you could encounter subpar repairs or mystery charges. Below is a short overview of qualities to look for when hiring a plumber:
Reputation and References
The only way you can really tell if a company provides legitimate service is by looking at their references. A plumbing company with an established reputation in the area may charge a little more upfront, but consider the peace of mind of not having to worry about call-backs or extra charges. Professionals with no reputation aren’t necessarily bad, but it is common practice among companies with bad reputations to simply change their name—beware if a company advertises years of experience with little or no references.
Licensing and Certification
Don’t just take a company’s word on their certification. Plumbing licensing varies by state, or even by local jurisdictions, so don’t be afraid to double-check credentials with your local municipal services. Do not confuse plumbing licensing with business licensing; it’s important to have both, but they do mean different things. Licensing and certification provides an assurance that any repairs or installations will be performed up to code. Most plumbing companies also carry insurance to protect employees in the event of an accident and reimburse homeowners for major damages from faulty repairs. It’s generally recommended to get a minimum of three bids to identify any suspiciously low or high estimates—many professional plumbers provide free estimates.

Most of the water in your home goes straight to the bathroom, so it only makes sense to start there with water conservation measures. Check out this brief video clip to see how you can properly adjust your toilet tank to save water and address minor plumbing leaks.
The valve assembly inside the toilet tank can be easily adjusted to lower the water level and reduce the amount of water wasted each flush. Any phantom flushing or steady leaks may indicate an issue with the flapper seal, which is a relatively simple repair.
When you do encounter major plumbing issues, B. Bohmann Plumbing is available to provide emergency repair services 24/7. We’ve been providing certified commercial and residential plumbing services throughout Milwaukee since 1986. Call (414) 312-4812 to schedule service.
