Plumbing Maintenance

Plumbing Maintenance

To make sure the plumbing units in your home are functioning properly, you should have your plumbing maintained once a year by calling a Salt Lake City plumbing contractor. The fluctuation of temperatures and everyday use can take its toll on a plumbing system.

Even small plumbing issues can lead to significant damage. Events such as clogs can draw raw sewage back up the drain, while leaks can cause water damage and lead to mold growth. Rather than dealing with these issues in the future take preventative measures today. Avoid future damage and get in touch with your local Salt Lake City plumbing contractor.

A few plumbing maintenance tips

Tip 1: Check for Leaks Around the Home: Leaks don’t always show up in plain sight. It’s the ones that can’t be easily found that can cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damage. The first thing you should do is check for water spots in rooms that use a lot of water. Look for wet and dark spots on walls and ceilings. Be aware of water pressure plunges and if you notice portions of your lawn growing much faster than others.

Tip 2: Clean Your Drains Each Year: By cleaning your drains you can help prevent clogs that can lead to water damage. It is important to do a thorough job and clean all areas of the drainage system and pipes. Leftover residue can lead to unwanted buildup and future drainage problems.

Tip 3: Have Regular Pipeline Inspections: A professional pipeline inspection can point to leaks you would not have been aware of. This is important especially in the case of older sewer line pipes.
