How To Do Plumbing Maintenance

According to statistics, more than 70% of home insurance claims are due to water-related damaged. Water can cause the structure of your home to weaken, damage and cause mold on walls, carpets and furniture. Furniture can be very badly damaged by water. The most dangerous problem related to water is that it can damage the structural elements of your home, sometimes leading to collapsing walls or roofs.

In order to avoid such damage, it is vital to have plumbing maintenance at least once a year, more if you have had water related problems in the past and have had to call a plumber to fix your plumbing. Arguably the most important item to have regular plumbing maintenance on is your geyser. If you live in a climate with extremely cold temperatures during winter, it is vital to have plumbing maintenance annually to ensure that your water pipes are insulated. If they are not properly maintained by a plumber, this can lead to a burst geyser, which can be one of the most damaging things to a home.

Plumbing maintenance can include checking for leaks, corrosion and testing water pressure. Low water pressure can hint at a blocked pipe or leak. Plumbing maintenance is so vital because it is cheaper to nip problems in the bud rather than to let them become worse and worse.

Other important aspects of plumbing maintenance that you can check without having to call a plumber is the speed of water drainage from baths, sinks and showers. A slow water drainage can mean that the drain is being blocked. If this is not maintained, it can cause overflowing of water.

Ensuring that there are no water leaks is also important in plumbing maintenance. Plumbing maintenance can usually be carried out by anyone as long as they know what they are looking for, although fixing the problem could require the assistance of a plumber.

Plumbing maintenance is vital for any homeowner, as problems may not be obvious to the inexperienced eye, but allowing problems with your plumbing to simmer may cost you a lot more money to fix in the long run.
