Your Spring Plumbing Checklist

Daffodils field

Spring is in the air and we’re sure you’re feeling it. The weather is warming up and the days are longer. It’s hard not to feel like you’re in better spirits during this time of year. We want you to enjoy your spring season, but we’d also like you to prepare your home for this time of year. Your plumbing in Sugar Land, TX is something that you should take meticulous care of. 

Spring cleaning serves your home best when it’s applied to your plumbing system. There are a few things you can do to make sure that your plumbing serves you well this season. Our plumbers are professionals. We have impeccable customer service matched with quality work. 

Make Sure You Do the Following…

Here are a few things we suggest doing this spring to keep your plumbing in top shape.

Clean Your AC Drain Line

The first thing you’re going to want to do is clean your home’s air conditioning drain line. They can clog up during the winter or fall months. Making sure that they’re clear before the warm weather season is the best way to prepare your home for the upcoming months. Calling a professional to perform this work is easiest because we’re always prepared to perform the work you need. 

Get Your Water Heater Tuned-Up

Your water heater is just like any other appliance in your home. It should be tuned-up by a professional on a regular basis. Most of the time, homeowners think this only applies to tank water heaters because they need to be flushed. In reality, both tank and tankless water heaters need to be maintained on a regular basis.

Have Your Sewer Lines Inspected

It’s important to have your sewer lines inspected on a regular basis. This is the best way to ensure that your home is safe and healthy throughout the entire year. Inspections ensure that a professional can spot troubles like tree roots growing toward your sewer line before they’re a bigger issue. 

Refresh Your Garbage Disposal Best Practices

Make sure that you know the best practices when it comes to your garbage disposal. Know what can go down into it. This will make your life a lot easier. Here is a short list of things you should avoid putting down the drain:

  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • F.O.G. (fat, oil, and grease)
  • Bones 
  • Fruit pits

All these things might seem like they’re not a major problem, but they’re easy ways to damage or clog your garbage disposal. 

Finally Tackle Your Hard Water Problem

Do you have an issue with hard water in your home? You might notice hard water issues if you have troubles with things like soap scum build-up on your faucets, dry hair, or brittle nails. These are all annoying symptoms that you might try to brush off as minor issues, but they’re more commonly issues that stem from poor water quality. We can figure out exactly what’s plaguing your home because we’re professionals.
