How can I prevent clogged drains?
Clogged drains are usually a sign that a bigger problem is occurring, which is why it is important to try to prevent them. There are four major ways that you can take initiative and prevent blockage.
First, use a drain screen. These drain screens can be bought at any hardware store, just make sure that they fit the size of the drain. Using a drain screen prevents food or other materials from entering and clogging your drain. Second, never pour grease down your drain. Grease is a substance that hardens, and it can ultimately lead to buildup. Third, clean your skin stopper. The pop-up stopper has a tendency to accumulate gunk, and therefore regularly cleaning it will prevent this from happening. Lastly, try pouring boiling water down your drain. This will remove clots and build up and keep the drain clean.
If the above methods do not work, then this is a sign that you have a different issue occurring within your piping system. In this case, contact one of our professionals as soon as possible.
How can I detect a water leak?
Water leaks are a serious issue. They can lead to water damage on the walls, floors, and subsequently the build-up of dangerous mold and mildew. The surest way to check for a water leak is to turn your water line off, and then check your water meter. If your water meter is still moving, chances are there is a flow of water occurring somewhere on the property, which is a sign that there is a leak. Other signs include dripping water, puddles in your yard, and a lack of water pressure.
How can I extend the lifespan of my water heater?
Water heaters are terribly inconvenient to replace, which is why you should do whatever it takes to keep it running in tip-top condition. The best way to lengthen the lifespan of your water heater is to have a professional perform routine maintenance checks. This will allow a professional to repair any minor issues before they lead to major problems in your water heater. In addition, it will keep the unit running smoothly and prevent future problems.
