The New Year brings with it change, transformation and goals. While most of these are based on lifestyle and health, it’s also important 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 January and February can be cold months. At Raymark Plumbing, we know just how important it is to have a fully working plumbing system all year round. Read on to find out how to prepare your plumbing for the year ahead.
Have Your Pipes Inspected
Before the temperature really begins to drop, call on the help of a professional plumber and have your pipes fully inspected. Your plumber will check for any leaks, damage and erosion and provide resolutions for any of these problems. Don’t take the chance and wait until something happens. No one wants to be without water at any time of the year – especially winter.
Keep Your Pipes Clean
A huge factor in preserving the longevity of your pipes and plumbing is to keep your pipes clean. There are a number of ways in which you can do this. Firstly, there are various products in the market that promise to unclog your pipes. While many of them are highly effective, just be sure to check the ingredients as you don’t want to purchase anything that will damage or erode them. Secondly, homemade cleaners are often very efficient at keeping the pipes clean. Baking soda with a dash of vinegar is a safe and effective way of keeping your pipes clean. Lastly, if your pipes haven’t been cleaned in a while, and you are experiencing some blockages, you may want to call a professional plumber to help get them sparkling once again.
