Keeping your plumbing system in tip-top shape starts with routine plumbing maintenance. It’s never fun dealing with urgent plumbing emergencies. Luckily, they can be avoided with regular inspections by your local and trusted plumbing company.

With Flow Pros Plumbing, you know you’re in good hands. We encourage our valued clients to schedule routine plumbing maintenance to best care for their home’s pipes and fixtures.

In this blog, our experts walk you through what to expect for a routine inspection. Plus, we discuss why regular maintenance is a must when properly caring for your home.

Read on to discover the importance of routine plumbing maintenance and what to expect when having your home serviced.

The Importance of Routine Plumbing Maintenance

When it comes to your plumbing system, you may be looking for a way to save money and avoid stressful situations. In that case, having your pipes and fixtures inspected on a regular basis is the solution for you. 

Without a doubt, there is no better way to take care of your plumbing system and catch emergencies before they happen. However, it’s not all about saving a few bucks or keeping away from trouble. 

We use our plumbing systems every single day. Whether brushing our teeth or doing the laundry, whenever there is an issue with our home’s plumbing, it can interrupt so much of our daily lives. 

Not to mention, the plumbing throughout your home can even impact you and your family’s health. It affects more than just mundane tasks and can also alter water and air quality.

Below, we discuss the three main reasons why routine plumbing maintenance is essential to the overall care of your home and those residing within.

1 | All Things are Possible with a Healthy Plumbing System

The following list is merely a glimpse of what your plumbing system makes possible on a day-to-day basis:

2 | Proactive vs. Reactive Approach

Scheduling routine plumbing maintenance is a proactive approach to home care. On the other hand, a reactive approach is waiting for a critical component to break or a pipe to burst. And we think that most people would agree that a proactive approach makes life a little easier. 

In fact, it can save you time, money, and hassle. Especially when it comes to your plumbing system, the proactive approach is the smartest way to keep up with wear and tear. We use our home’s plumbing every single day in many ways. Therefore, parts can easily become worn or faulty. And with plumbing, issues often need immediate attention before an emergency arises. 

It’s a lot like going to the dentist . . .

Keeping up with regular plumbing maintenance is just like scheduling your dental cleaning every six months. Without routine dental appointments, problems with your teeth can stack up. Then, once you finally make it to your very-overdue cleaning, you are left with a hefty bill and a disappointed look from your dental hygienist. 

So, avoid emergencies by scheduling routine plumbing maintenance. You surely won’t regret it.

3 | Plumbing Affects Water and Air Quality

With regular care, your pipes stay clean and water quality is improved. High levels of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals can harm the pipes throughout your home. For instance, it can build up inside your plumbing system, causing clogs, leaks, and corrosion.

Scheduling regular plumbing maintenance can help improve the quality of your water. But that’s not all. Routine inspections can also affect the very air you breathe. 

When leaks go undetected, excess moisture can make for the perfect conditions for mold, mildew, and bacterial growth- YUCK.

Mold and mildew travel through the air within your home. Plus, it can even travel from room to room through the vents and air ducts. When mold and mildew builds-up, you and your family can become ill. Common symptoms include the following:

How Often Should I Schedule Plumbing Maintenance?

Our experts recommend scheduling your routine plumbing maintenance at least once a year for the average home. However, if you live in an older home with a dated system, you may want your plumbing inspected every six months. 

Additionally, if you know your home’s plumbing system is problematic and want to avoid emergencies at all costs, you can schedule our services more often.

Nevertheless, having your home’s plumbing serviced annually is an excellent habit, saving time and money in the long run.

All About Routine Plumbing Maintenance

So, what exactly is routine plumbing maintenance?

In general, regular inspections involve checking all the essential parts of your home’s plumbing system and ensuring everything is in working condition. And at the end of their visit, our technicians will let you know of any areas of concern and help you schedule further appointments.

How to Prepare for Your Appointment

Little needs to be done to prepare for your appointment. In fact, we don’t require anything from you. However, it helps our staff when certain areas, like under the kitchen and bathroom sink, are clean and clear. This lets our plumbers thoroughly check pipes and switches with full visibility and plenty of access.

So, it is certainly appreciated if you have the time to straighten up and declutter the areas where our plumbers will be working. Otherwise, we will get the job done- and done right– no matter what.

What Areas Need Regular Inspection and Upkeep?

It helps to know what parts of your plumbing system we’ll check when doing our plumbing maintenance. The following components are sure to be inspected:

How Does Routine Plumbing Maintenance Work?

Our friendly plumbers arrive at your home prepared and ready for action. They’ll start by turning off the power to the water heater and flushing out the system. 

Next, they’ll move on to all the smaller components in your plumbing system. Our technicians ensure all fixtures and valves are working correctly. Additionally, they check for leaks, water stains, mold and mildew, and other signs of water damage. 

If they happen to find anything of concern, they’ll inform you right away. What’s more, our plumbers take their time to explain what’s going on and provide you with solutions.

If possible, when an issue is found, the technician will recommend taking care of it that same day. However, if the plumbing problem is more advanced or requires special equipment or parts, scheduling an appointment works just as well. And our staff is happy to help set a date before they conclude their service with you.
