Every spring, people around the world feel the temperatures rise and want to open their homes to fresh air after months of winter doldrums. Spring cleaning is a time-honored tradition that includes cleaning various areas of the home, but don’t forget about your plumbing. When the urge to get your house in order takes over, listen to out plumbing advice and make sure you take care of your plumbing too.
It’s recommended to occasionally use an ecologically friendly drain cleaner to keep your pipes clear throughout the year. You can do this any time of the year, but it makes sense (and an easy way to remember) to do it when you do your spring cleaning. Throughout the year, items such as hair and grease may go down the drain and over time that will cause a clog. Using an organic drain cleaner can help you keep the pipes clog free.
Your water heater worked extra hard this winter to keep your water warm, so you should reward it with an inspection. Winter can be hard on water heaters as they try to keep the water warm despite the frigidly cold temperatures. By doing an inspection in spring, you can take care of any problems before they become an emergency. The last thing you want is for your heater to go out or need to be replaced because of a problem you could have already fixed with hot water plumbing.
The winter can be a nightmare for pipes and fixtures. If you have any leaky pipes, fixtures or toilets, then spring cleaning is the perfect time to get them fixed. Leaky pipes and fixtures may not seem very important right now, but the leak will worsen over time and it could be doing significant damage to your flooring, cabinets or anything else the water touches. If you let a leak go, then you could end up paying for a major plumbing repair. If you have a sink linking, take care of it now when it’s only a minor inconvenience.
