With the New Year in full swing, it brings with it change and transformation for many. This is also the time of year to think about your home and ensure it’s ready for the year ahead. Your plumbing, in particular, should be in perfect working condition, especially as the start of the year tends to be cold, which causes plumbing issues. At Pratt Plumbing, we know just how important it is to have a fully working plumbing system all year round. So, read on to find out how to get your plumbing ready for the year ahead.
Get Your Pipes Inspected by a Professional
Before the temperature begins to drop even more, enlist the help of a professional plumber and have your pipes properly inspected. A plumber will check for any damage or erosion, and provide resolutions for these problems. Don’t take the chance and have them inspected soon.
Keep Your Pipes Clean
A huge factor in preserving the lifespan of your pipes and plumbing is to keep everything squeaky clean. There are a number of ways in which you can keep your pipes clean. With various products on the market that promise to unclog your pipes, you’ll be sure to find something that suits you. Just make sure the ingredients aren’t harmful. Alternatively, homemade cleaners can be very efficient at keeping the pipes clean. Baking soda with a dash of vinegar is a safe and effective way of keeping them clean. Lastly, if your pipes haven’t been professionally cleaned in a while, and you are experiencing blockages, you may want to call a plumber to do the job properly.
