You could fill a library with all the content that’s been written about preventive maintenance, and still some people won’t do it because it disrupts their daily routine. Here are a few mishaps that could occur in the home that are as messy as a plumbing problem if you fail to inspect and maintain your plumbing system.
In today’s post, Plumb Straight Plumbing, Inc. discusses why you need to inspect your plumbing and what to expect from it.
You do plumbing inspections for one reason—to detect small, minor issues before they become more serious. Plumbing problems aren’t always as dramatic as leaks; often, leaks are just the latest to rear their ugly head–the culmination of a series of issues. An inspection can help locate issues in the chain before they snowball.
Finding Clogs & Blockages
You might not see it, but sometimes clogging occurs even when you think your drains are working fine. Scum and other mineral deposits might have hardened inside your pipes, in which case the pipes will require a thorough scrubbing to get rid of the buildup. When an inspection reveals these hidden blockages, you’ll see the difference when you need to drain your water.
Plumbing contractors, especially licensed ones like Plumb Straight Plumbing Inc., consider certain electrical appliances to be one of their responsibilities. The reason is that some appliances require plumbing to work well, such as washing machines, dishwashers and even air conditioning and heating units. At Plumb Straight Plumbing Inc., we also inspect the efficiency of your appliances to make sure they’re actually doing well, or if their condition needs to be reevaluated for repair or replacement.
Building & Appliance Regulations Update
Finally, plumbing contractors also abide by county, state and federal rules regarding how the plumbing works in your house. These rules often change, and we can update you on the latest regulations. A plumbing inspection can help you stay up to code and avoid unnecessary penalties.
