How to Show Your Plumbing Some Love
While the plumbing system in your home may not be the first thing on your mind around Valentine’s Day, pipes need some attention too. We take well-maintained plumbing for granted until a pipe breaks or a drain gets clogged. Here are some ways to give the plumbing a little TLC this year.
Take Care Of Leaking Pipes
Don’t ignore those wet pipes or dripping faucets. Small leaks can become a giant headache if they’re left to get worse. Leaking pipes are not only a critical maintenance issue, but they’re also a big waste of water. There are other telltale signs of leaks in the home like mold, mildew, or paint peeling from the walls.
Give Your Pipes A Little Insulation
Wrapping pipes is a great way to insulate them to keep them warm all year. When pipes are wrapped, they have less chance of bursting during cold spells. Insulation also keeps the hot water from losing its heat as it travels through the house.
Preventive Maintenance Is Key
Nothing says I care more than scheduling a licensed plumber to do a drain cleaning in your home. Regular cleanings remove any trapped grease, hair, food, and debris to stop the drains from getting backed up. Taking care of the plumbing with proper maintenance will save money in the long run.
