Helpful Tips for Spring Cleaning
Most everyone knows that spring is the best time to dust, shampoo your carpets, and give your floors a good cleaning. But what about the most important aspect of your home? Just like the rest of your home, plumbing needs some TLC now too.
Opt for natural alternatives to chemical cleaners.
Before you start cleaning, make sure you’re using the right materials. While chemical cleaners may seem strong enough to get the job done, they can actually pose more problems than solutions. Because chemicals can corrode the inside of your pipes, consider using natural alternatives, like baking soda and vinegar to get a spotless clean or unclogged drain.
Don’t forget about your appliances.
Plumbing is connected to some of the most used appliances in your home, like your dishwasher, washing machine, and refrigerator. In addition to your pipes themselves, make sure you’re also cleaning out appliances and checking carefully for loose bolts and washers, and leaks.
Schedule any annual maintenance.
A year comes by faster than you think. So even if it feels like you just had something serviced, it may already be time for another check-up. Even if you’re not experiencing a leak or obvious problem, preventative care can make a big difference in the way your plumbing works.
