Your home’s plumbing system is fickle. The slightest provocation could lead to a disastrous leak that causes extensive structural damage and aids in the growth of mold and mildew. While a small fixture leak may not seem like a big deal, the situation could quickly grow out of hand. If that’s the case, you’re looking at extensive damage; it is potentially a disaster. Here is how to avoid a plumbing disaster in your home.
The majority of plumbing disasters are easily preventable as long as homeowners use their plumbing system correctly and safely. The only thing to go down a drain is water, toilet paper, and human waste. That is all. Avoid flushing foreign objects, including toys, food waste, hair, oil or grease, and feminine hygiene products. These items are known to cause blockages, which can lead to leaks and further damage.
There’s a reason so many professional plumbing companies provide extensive drain cleaning as a primary service. It’s a fantastic deterrent.
Preventative drain and pipe cleaning is an efficient tool to avoid plumbing disasters such as clogs or sewage backflow. Industry techniques and technology allow clean plumbing installations without chemical usage. Furthermore, hydro-jet cleaning is the perfect solution to remove traces of clogs, debris, and harmful bacteria.
Water Heater Repairs
Your water heater is likely tucked away in the basement or a side room; somewhere out of sight and out of mind, for the most part. That’s OK, as long as you remember to maintain and repair the system promptly.
Water heaters are a leading cause of plumbing systems, from flooding to total loss of hot water in a home. These systems require a regular check-up by an experienced technician to function safely and efficiently.
