Are you doing spring cleaning this year? Well, just like any home, your plumbing system deserves a little love and attention to stay clean and efficient. Believe it or not, a lot can be done without any special training, as long as everything looks to be working properly. Your plumbing system can incorporate everything from your showers and drains, sinks and faucets, gutters, garbage disposal, water heater, and more. With that in mind, here are some quick tips for maintaining your plumbing system throughout the spring season.
Tidy Up Garbage Disposal
Whether used regularly or seldom, it is best to give your garbage disposal a thorough clean. Also, remember what can and cannot be disposed of this way — despite being called a garbage disposal, it is not meant to dispose of actual garbage.
If you discover any leaks or odd sounds, reach out to your local plumbing company.
Clean Bathrooms Thoroughly
During your regular bathroom cleaning routine, don’t forget to wipe down the showerhead, where a lot of mineral buildup occurs. Get behind and around the toilet, too, as these are huge areas for bacteria collection. Regularly cleaning out the drain pipes with a plunger can help prevent a clog — although nothing compares to the work of a Go Green plumber.
Check The Water Heater
See what the temperature reads. If it gets too high, it can burn the skin, but if it is not high enough, it may be inefficient. We recommend scheduling annual maintenance appointments to ensure your unit is working properly. Contact our Greensboro-based plumbing company today!
Look For Any Leaks Or Drips
If you come across any leaks, make sure to have them addressed as soon as possible to prevent further issues. This relates to faucets and all sources of incoming water, as well as areas prone to water damage. If you notice any discoloration in the walls or ceilings or any mold-like smells, contact your plumbing professional for assistance.
Extra Precautions To Take
Scheduling a plumber to regularly check your pipes and do a thorough drain cleaning can prove to be quite a lifesaver. Not only can professional plumbers check on pipes throughout the property, but they can address any issues with the right knowledge and tools to fix them the right way, the first time around.
