How can I prevent clogged drains?
Clogged drains are common in the kitchen and bathroom, but there are a few things that you can do to prevent them.
In the kitchen, grease should never be disposed of in the sink, even if you run hot water simultaneously. Food should not be disposed through the sink because small bits of food can get down in your pipes and cause a clog. Even if you do have a garbage disposal, you should be careful about washing down things like rice and pasta that can get wet and begin to swell.
Clogs in the bathroom are commonly caused by hair, so it’s important to get hair out of the drain whenever you notice it. Even a few strands of hair can start to accumulate and can cause a clog. If you have clogged drains, you should be careful about using chemical drain cleaners because they can damage your pipes. Instead, it’s typically best to enlist the assistance of a plumber to get rid of your clogs.
How can I detect a water leak?
Water leaks can cause expensive water bills and waste, and they can also cause damage to your flooring, walls and cabinets and can promote the growth of mildew or mold. If you think you have a water leak, it’s essential to take care of the problem right away.
Noisy toilets, dripping faucets, excess water in the areas under your sink, near your toilet or around your shower or bathtub can all be indications of water leaks. You can also check the areas around your appliances, such as your dishwasher and your water heater, for excess moisture.
How can I extend the lifespan of my water heater?
Water heaters are costly and you probably don’t want to replace yours before you have to. Luckily, there are a few steps that you can take to lengthen the lifespan of your water heater.
Using a water softener is a good idea because it can prevent mineral deposits from accumulating in your appliance. Having your tank cleaned yearly can also help you get rid of any sedimentary deposits that might have accumulated within the tank, and a professional plumber can test your pressure-relief valve and replace it if necessary. Water heaters can last for ten years or more if they’re properly cared for, so it’s worthwhile to invest in maintenance once a year.
