Showing Some Plumbing Love To Your Home

Spring is coming and love is in the air. While you’re thinking about spring cleaning your home, don’t forget to give your plumbing system some TLC too. Every relationship needs attention and the same goes for your pipes. If you want your drains, pipes and sewer to keep running smoothly, then it’s a great time to do have plumbing maintenance done and to learn about this important utility in your home.

Add Plumbing Maintenance To Your List

Show your pipes you care by scheduling a maintenance visit with a plumbing company that will save you money on future repairs. Some of our most popular services include:

  • Checking and clearing drains
  • Testing your water pressure
  • Inspecting pipes, toilets and faucets for leaks
  • Searching for interior and exterior signs of leaks

Treat Your Pipes Right With These Good Habits

It can be tempting to pour oil down the sink or flush a cotton ball once in a while, but these items don’t belong in your pipes. Here’s a breakdown of what should always be disposed of properly and should never be put in your garbage disposal, sink or toilet:

Toilet

  • Feminine products
  • Baby wipes
  • Cotton balls
  • Diapers
  • Kitty litter

Garbage Disposal

  • Coffee grounds
  • Eggshells
  • Starchy foods
  • Grease and oil

Drains

  • Paint
  • Chemicals
  • Grease and oil
  • Motor oil

Keep Your Pipes Warm In The Cold Temperatures

Your pipes get cold too, so much so that they can freeze when the weather is cold. When the water in your pipes freezes and expands, it can cause your pipes to burst. This can lead to costly repairs for your plumbing system and the potential water damage this can cause. Keep your pipes toasty and working smoothly by wrapping them in insulation.
