Slow draining pipes are a disaster waiting to happen. Clogged pipes can be caused by a lot of different reasons, including grease, tree roots, toys, and other items. If your toilet, tub, or sink is slowly draining, it will likely become fully clogged and cause backflow into your home. If your home has a backflow of sewage into your home, it can become a nightmare. The best way to prevent sewage in your home is to have a plumber unclog any slow draining pipes.
Exposed Pipes and Faucets
Outdoor faucets and exposed pipes can become frozen with the cooler weather. If you have outdoor faucets, it is smart to go ahead and undo your hoses and protect your faucets. If not, you will likely end up with a frozen pipe, which could turn into a major water disaster in your home. If you see any exposed pipes, you should insulate them and ensure your pipes are all protected for the colder weather.
Water Heater Maintenance
Water heaters can cause extensive water damages. If your water heater has not had any maintenance completed, now is the time. Your water heater can cause your entire home to flood in the event it breaks. A certified plumber can check your water heater and provide any maintenance needed to ensure your water heater is safe from leaking or damages.
Surprisingly, dishwashers can cause significant water damages to your home. If your dishwasher is damaged or leaking, it can cause structural damages, flooding, and mold if the problem is not found quickly. Checking your dishwasher can save you a lot of money on water disasters and damages.
