Avoid Plumbing Problems With an Annual Home Checkup
Friday, May 29, 2015 - 4:04pm
You may go to the doctor every year and see your dentist every 6 months, but how often do you give your house a checkup? Preventative maintenance and annual checkups are a smart, cost-effective way to keep your home’s plumbing running smoothly. When you invest in preventative maintenance, you’ll catch most problems sooner and avoid major catastrophes.
Just like visiting your doctor’s office can prevent trips to the emergency room, calling Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse for preventative maintenance can prevent backups, line breaks and other plumbing disasters.
Benefits of Maintenance
Our Syracuse pipe maintenance experts know what to look for beyond the simple state of your sinks. Every inspection includes a plumbing camera inspection to check your pipes inside and out. You can also choose from preventative maintenance plans that will reveal any current problems and make you aware of any issues that may occur in the future.
A thorough maintenance checkup should inspect:
- Plants and roots — Roots pushing into pipes is one of the most common causes for backups in the Syracuse area. Annual visits help you track dangerous roots or remove a recent break-in before roots fill your pipes completely.
- Slow drains — Drains are designed so they don’t slow down with age. Part of your annual exam includes locating slow drains and removing clogs or other blockages to prevent a major disaster later.
- Every water appliance — Any appliance with a water line can leak, so it’s important to check all of your water lines for any sign of a leak. Periodic inspections from your friendly neighborhood Syracuse plumbing company is the best way to detect small leaks before they damage your property, appliances or home. From water heaters and washing machines to the line you just installed for your new coffee machine, Mr. Rooter is your all-inclusive Syracuse pipe maintenance specialist.
- Common problems — Whether it’s grease solidifying under the sink or a pool of water around your basement drain, our Syracuse pipe maintenance experts know what warning signs to look for. We can help you solve common problems and keep your sewer lines clear.
Protect Against the Unexpected
A regular visit to inspect your plumbing is also a great way to safeguard your home in the event of an emergency. Our technicians will learn the age and layout of your home’s sewer lines, so our Syracuse pipe maintenance and repair teams can resolve emergencies quicker and get you back to a safer home.
