Refreshing Your Home’s Plumbing

Your typical Sunday cleaning checklist probably includes washing and folding laundry, dusting the knick-knacks, and scrubbing the dishes. But when was the last time you refreshed your home’s plumbing fixtures and system? While they don’t necessarily need to be cleaned as often as the dishes or laundry, it’s a good idea to give your plumbing system a deep clean from time to time to maintain efficiency.

Inspect Your Fixtures

If your home has hard water, you’re probably accustomed to spotting scale deposits on your faucets and showerheads. Hard water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium that can settle in your fixture and begin to accumulate. It’s important to thoroughly inspect all fixtures for mineral buildup that could be hindering their performance.

Avoid Store-Bought Drain Cleaners

It may seem convenient to pick up a bottle of chemical drain cleaner at the grocery store to clear a stubborn clog, but we urge against it. While these cleaners effectively eat away at sludge and blockages, they will also eat into your pipes. To maintain the stability and structure of your plumbing system, stick to natural drain cleaning solutions, like the classic odor-removing combination of baking soda, white vinegar, and lemon juice.

Schedule Professional Drain Cleanings

If your trusty baking soda and vinegar fall short of completely clearing the clog, it’s time to call in our experts. Professional drain cleanings can help keep your plumbing system healthy, especially when scheduled regularly. Our technicians will inspect your clogged drain, remove the blockage, and ensure no other potential areas of concern.
