Spring and summer are always a welcomed time and can often mean it is finally time to get around to some of those home improvement and maintenance projects. While it can be easy to focus on the outside of your home, your home’s plumbing and drainage also need yearly maintenance. So, before you call for plumbing services, here are some areas and projects you may want to think about getting looked at by a professional plumber.
- New Faucets & Fixtures
Have you been thinking about replacing an old showerhead, toilet, or kitchen faucet? Doing so will not only modernize and improve appearances, but it will also help with maintenance and overall water efficiency. New technology and plumbing innovation make it possible to save on utilities when you upgrade. Such things like high-efficiency toilets, water-saving faucets, low-flow showerheads, and more can save you in the long run.
Getting an inspection and pipe maintenance is a great thing to do, especially if you have noticed little water/plumbing issues like low water pressure, etc. Getting a certified residential plumbing technician to inspect and repair any issues is always recommended; not doing so can lead to potentially larger and costlier issues down the line.
- Flushing You Water Heater
As with any appliance or product, regular maintenance can lead to longer lifespans, and water heaters are no different. While on average, water heaters can last around 12 years, flushing your heater every year and ridding it of sediment and other grim can improve its performance and lifespan.
- Clean Your Drains
With spring and summer, this means outside growth of trees and plants. With that comes the possibility of roots expanding into your sewer system – which can lead to blockages of pipes. Also, getting your bathtub, shower, and sinks drained and snaked is always a good idea.
- Garbage Disposal & Dishwasher Maintenance
Spring and summer are great times to get your garbage disposal system maintained (along with your dishwasher). Doing this can also improve its performance and longevity.
