Many people associate the cold winter months, and the fall leading up to them, as the time to get a plumbing inspection. While there is much truth to this as a faulty plumbing system can wreak havoc on your home, this is not the only time of the year where a plumbing inspection is important. The onset of warm weather is another period in which it is important to get a plumber to perform an inspection your system. There are many notable reasons for this.
Winter, as noted above, is a time when many homes experience a significant amount of wear and tear. This extends to your plumbing system which is more likely to experience a significant amount of damage during this time and may be in need of immediate repairs and maintenance. A professional plumber can inspect and identify these problems early on in spring before they worsen and can implement needed repairs immediately.
Spring is a time for growth and plant life grows significantly during this time, sometimes to the detriment of a homeowner. Plant life can grow into your plumbing system and disrupt your pipes and systems, thereby resulting in significant damage. Having this plant life removed is best left to a professional plumber who can inspect and correct these problems in your plumbing system with a snake or auger, and remove the offending vegetation before they become a major problem later in the season. Having exposed pipes caused by vegetation can lead to infestations by rodents and other wildlife, as well as leaks in the pipes, and is best prevented by a plumbing inspection.
April showers bring May flowers, so the saying goes, but this onset of the rainy season can lead to flooding and backed up plumbing systems. Having these problems taken care of proactively with a plumbing inspection can make sure that your plumbing system does not become overwhelmed by the infusion of water that happens each year as the spring rains start and your plumbing system may become quickly overwhelmed by the rains. Making sure it is working effectively before this happens is essential for your plumbing system.
