Spring is an amazing time of year. It’s filled with hope and promise for the future. So, when spring comes around, it’s no wonder that we all love to get busy working on new projects, spring cleaning and so on. While you’re making all these changes, it’s important to remember the bones of your home. Your plumbing is so crucial to your everyday living. Imagine waking up with no hot water or even no water at all! It just isn’t worth thinking about, right? If you have experienced any plumbing problems during the winter, or even if you haven’t, it’s a sensible idea to ensure your system is well-prepared for the change of seasons.
Inspecting Your Plumbing
Yes, it sounds pretty boring and perhaps it is, but it must be said from our experience as plumbers Canning Vale WA that regularly checking out your plumbing can catch issues before they arise. So, what do you need to do?
- Check for leaks. Unfortunately, leaks tend to spring up at the most inopportune times. (Actually, is there a ‘good’ time for your pipes to start leaking!?) Also, these can happen anywhere in your home or business. So, you need to have a look around. If you spot any signs such as running water where it shouldn’t be, wet or damp patches, leaky pipes or fixtures or anything else, give us a call. We are the reliable plumber Canning Vale residents trust. Find out why for yourself!
- Have a look at your basement plumbing. Bear in mind that your if you have a basement, that plumbing needs to be checked too. See whether any exposed pipework is damaged in any way. Again, check for water pooling, damp areas, mould and so on. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, get in touch!
- Clean the drains. A clogged drain is bad news and can happen at any time at all. Make cleaning your drains part of your regular routine. Be sure to avoid chemical cleaners than can corrode your pipes over time. Instead use, baking soda or vinegar.
- Look at your water heater. You don’t want your water heater to burst and flood your home so keep a regular check on it. Again, if you are at all concerned about anything, get in touch with us.
