Spring is a time of rebirth, for nature, your family, and your home.
As grass begins to grow and flowers start to bud again, it is time to brush off the winter and get your home or business ready for the rest of the year. This is the time many people get their heating and cooling systems checked and serviced. Take advantage of the “maintenance season” by preparing your plumbing for spring cleaning as well.
Follow our suggestions below to get your plumbing system spring ready.
1. Stop Leaks and Save Money
According to WorldAtlas, only 1 percent of all of the water on Earth is drinkable. Water bills are also accessed by the amount used. A leak in your home or office will waste a precious resource while costing you money. Keep an eye out for leaks, and about once a month, do a thorough check-up on your pipes.
2. Drop the Risk of Black Mold
Black mold hurts those around it. Mold leads to breathing issues and makes current health conditions more severe. Leaks can make an area more likely to grow black mold. If you suspect mold growth, get a professional leak tech and plumber like those at Orlando Leak Detection to your property right away.
3. Give Your System a Pressure Test
Test your system for leaks with a pressure test. A pressure test involves draining your plumbing system then forcing pressurized air through your pipes. The system is then closed and held stable for at least 15 minutes. If the pressure drops, there is a leak in your system.
4. Clear Debris from Your Drains
The more completely clear your drain and sewer pipes are, the more seamlessly your system will clear liquid. As the world wakes up, people go out more and entertain at their homes more. Additionally, the weather may cause other backups down the line. A small backup could lead to bigger issues later on.
5. Replace Sprinkler Heads and Faucets
Replace old, worn parts around your home. Worn out parts don’t work as well as newer, more modern parts. Some parts may be corroded and cause health issues. Prevent leaks by updating your sprinkler heads and the facets of your sinks or baths now.
