The Maynard Man knows that plumbing problems can be pretty stressful! Unfortunately in many cases, plumbing problems are the accumulation of years of neglect to the home’s plumbing system. We don’t blame you! The plumbing system is “out of sight, out of mind,” and therefore not considered very much.
But a lack of care and attention can lead to a number of problems, from clogged-up drains to burst pipes and much more.
Fortunately, you have The Maynard Man and team to call when you do run into a plumbing issue. But wouldn’t it be nice to avoid it altogether right from the start? By following the plumbing care tips we’re about to share, you could do just that.
Have Annual Plumbing Maintenance Done
Maintenance is an important way to avoid the biggest plumbing problems, particularly in your sewer system. When you invest in plumbing maintenance, our professional plumbers will take a look at your whole plumbing system and the attached plumbing appliances, letting you know the condition of each.
If we feel anything needs further repair or even replacement, we’ll tell you right away so you can get those services on your calendar.
Use a Mesh Screen on Your Drains
Mesh screens, when used in sinks and other drains within your plumbing appliances, can catch problematic items that could otherwise clog up the drains or even cause a sewer backup.
You can ease the burden on your plumbing system by trapping some of these particles before they even have the chance to enter your drainage system with a mesh screen.
Invest in Regular Drain and Sewer Cleaning
Sewer cleaning isn’t one of those services we really want to think about that much, but it is one of the most valuable services a homeowner can invest in. It’s a preventative measure ensuring that nothing is lurking deep down in your plumbing system waiting to clog up the whole thing.
Make Plumbing Upgrades
Have you noticed you’ve had to call for water leak detection or water leak repair more than once over the last year? Or maybe you’ve had a few plumbing repair surprises pop up? Depending on how old your home is, you might benefit from whole-home or at least partial pipe replacement.
