It’s spring! The temperatures here in Texas heat up a lot faster than those of our neighbors up north. You’ve probably already started in on some spring cleaning—clearing out the garage, swapping out those winter clothes for lighter layers, and deep cleaning your home. There’s one area of your home that you’ve probably neglected though—your plumbing system!
We don’t blame you for this. We’re a plumbing company, but we’re realistic — we know that to most people your plumbing system is out of sight and entirely out of mind. We want to bring it to your attention with this helpful plumbing checklist for spring.
Take A Good Look at Your Home
Now is a great time for you to assess the quality of your plumbing before any big problems pop up in the future. Take a look through your home and check for things like leaky pipes, a malfunctioning shower head, or a toilet that’s not functioning as it should. Any plumbing problem that you have now (even if it seems small) can snowball into a much bigger problem. It’s best to contact a professional to get your system up to par sooner than later.
Schedule a Drain Cleaning
When was the last time you had a drain cleaning? If you can’t remember you should schedule an appointment with our team sooner than later. This really isn’t ideal because your drain and sewer lines are some of the most important parts of your plumbing system—they remove water from high-risk areas like your kitchen and bathroom. You want to ensure that this contaminated water never becomes a health risk to your home or family. That’s why you should schedule drain cleanings on a regular basis so that you can keep your home up to par.
Consider a Filtration System
Do you have a water filter in your home? We’re not talking about the one in the fridge or even one that you might have attached to your sink faucet. What we’re talking about here is a whole-house filtration system designed to purify all the water moving through your home.
A lot of times we introduce this concept to homeowners in the area and they’re hesitant. You might think it sounds like overkill to have a filtration system for your entire house, but we can assure you that it’s a great investment. A whole-house filtration system can prevent rust stains, chemical taste, chemical smells, black spots, and spots on your dishes and hardware.
