The plumbing system in your house is amazingly durable, and it usually works so well you never even notice or think about it. Unfortunately, this can also mean that problems often go unnoticed until they become major issues that require expensive repairs. To help keep your plumbing running in optimal condition, the kitchen and bathroom remodeling specialists at A Notch Above Remodeling & Repairs in Lebanon, OH, recommend checking your system and performing routine maintenance at least once a year.
A few of the most important things to check include:
- Caulking Around Sinks, Showers, And Toilets: Look for leaks and dry, cracking caulking.
- Signs of Mildew: Clogged drains often leave standing water that promotes the growth of mold.
- Water Leaks: Be on the lookout for puddles of water or water stains near the pipes. In addition to exposed pipes, examine the foundation of your house and anywhere you know there are pipes.
- Corrosion: If you have copper or brass pipes and fixtures, look for green stains that indicate metal corrosion. Over time, the metal will weaken and could cause massive damage if it breaks.
- Toilets: Make
sure they're seated firmly and don't rock back and forth, and that
they flush properly. Look for standing water around the bottom and
make sure they stop running once the tank is full.
