It’s important to maintain your plumbing in your home because it’s a lot cheaper to be proactive than it is to be reactive.
Staying ahead of leaks and malfunctions will definitely add value to the system.
One thing you can do to prevent freezing in the home, at the kitchen sink, is leaving the faucet open to a bare drip. The smallest amount will go a long way in keeping that water flowing.
Some things you could do to protect your piping and plumbing from the winter elements include leaving your cabinet doors open under the sink to allow air to circulate through there.
One thing you can do for your outside faucets is to definitely disconnect hoses. Those are very liable to freeze and cause a lot of damage.
If your plumbing is in the garage, leave the garage door closed as much as possible.
Another thing you can do is schedule a maintenance visit. One of our plumbers will come out and go over your entire plumbing system to make sure everything’s in working order.
By taking the time to have us inspect and maintain your plumbing system, you could prevent problems in the wintertime like freeze-ups and bursts of piping.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to your plumbing system.
