As a homeowner there are many sources of fear; what if there’s a fire, or a break in, or your pipes burst? While many of the risks within a home are purely down to luck (or lack of it), plumbing is one area where many potential problems can be eliminated. With the help of routine plumbing maintenance, you can keep your home in better working order and prevent the surprises.
One of the most expensive and long-term headaches of a homeowner is to have a plumbing emergency or malfunction. Not only can it be costly to have a plumber come out to your home in a hurry, but if the problem isn’t caught quickly enough, the damage can be significant. Within hours water damage can escalate to cause rot, discoloration, loss of possessions, and mold and mildew growth.
By keeping up with your routine maintenance, you’ll lower your plumbing systems overall costs. Often, you’ll be able to catch weak spots in your system before they break and your plumber will be able to help you keep an eye out for other concerns. These steps can save you significantly from the costs that would occur if something went wrong.
Improve Air Quality
Leaks from water and sewage pipes can severely impact indoor air quality. Not only can they cause nasty odors, but they can cause respiratory damage and problems that can long outlast the water damage itself. Mold and mildew have a stronger impact on children, pets, and the elderly and can put all of them at significant risk.
Increase Appliance Lifespan
Last but not least, all appliances have a lifespan, but they are all to often cut short due to improper care. Having them cared for regularly will help to ensure that your appliances work at their best for far longer.
