As with any appliance or system in your home, just because something is out of sight does not mean it should remain out of mind. This is especially true when it comes to maintaining your plumbing systems, as they undergo quite a bit of wear and tear over time.
While plumbing systems are designed to be durable, they still require regular maintenance and care to keep them from aging and deteriorating faster than they should. Bringing a qualified plumber out to your home for an annual check is the best way to avoid unexpected problems and emergencies. So don’t wait! Take a proactive approach to the care of your home. After all, it is the largest investment you will ever make in your lifetime.
Why Do I Need Regular Maintenance?
Even if your plumbing systems are new, and you think that you don’t need to schedule maintenance, think again. Plumbing maintenance is far more than just checking to see if pipes have leaks or corrosion. Regular maintenance also includes all of those major appliances that you use on a daily basis that can undergo stress throughout the year. Water heaters, for example, are part of regular maintenance checkups, because their correct and efficient operation is a matter of safety for you and your family.
Regular maintenance is your “insurance policy” against small plumbing issues that could turn into big emergencies. Your plumber can catch small problems with water or sewer lines in and around your property before they turn into expensive home disasters.
What Is Usually Involved in an Annual Plumbing Visit?
There are so many benefits to routine plumbing maintenance. Some of the proactive services and measures that your plumber can provide you, include:
- Extending the life of your plumbing systems and appliances
- Preventing unexpected, unseen plumbing emergencies
- Reducing the need for service calls for simple, preventable problems
- Saving your house from flood damage as a result of broken pipes
- Cutting utility costs by making sure all systems are operating efficiently
When you schedule your annual maintenance visit, a qualified plumber will check everything from your water heater to your faucets, supply lines, toilets, shut-off valves, drains and all appliances connected to plumbing sources, like washing machines and dishwashers. They will also search for leaks, blockages and corrosion.
By staying aware of your situation, you can stay ahead of any issues that might pop up. At the end of your routine visit, you should be provided with a list of suggestions and advice for repairs that will help keep your home safe from sewer and water damage.
