Home Plumbing Repair and Maintenance Tips

Home Plumbing Repair and Maintenance Tips

Are you a new homeowner who is overwhelmed with all of the responsibility and stress that comes along with owning your own property? Do you wish that some days you could call the landlord to come over and fix issues for you? While home ownership is an extremely rewarding accomplishment, it seems to come with a virtually never-ending list of chores. If your Saturdays never seem quite long enough to tackle all of the repair and maintenance needs around the house, then it is fairly certain there are areas that are being overlooked. One system in particular that is easy to forget about is the plumbing. Easy to forget about, that is, until a pipe breaks and water is hitting the floor. A great way to stay on top of the maintenance and repair needs of your home plumbing system is to call Roto-Rooter and set up a full system inspection. During an inspection, a certified technician will come to your home and perform a full-system sweep that will shed light on areas that need immediate attention. Taking these notes into consideration and making plans for resolution in these areas will prevent unnecessary stress in the future.

 Tips and Tricks for Proper Maintenance

When people think of maintenance, they often associate it with heavy repairs. The reality is that while you may need to rely on the services of a professional Roto-Rooter technician, the bulk of plumbing maintenance is in the cleaning and proper usage. Use the following tips and tricks to help you take better care of your bathroom: 

  • When using the commode, the best way to prevent clogs is to simply ensure that each visit to the bathroom uses multiple flushes, if necessary. This will prevent waste from getting caught in the system and forming clogs.
  • For most clogs that form, they are only hiccups in the system that can be quickly and easily resolved with a plunger. Keep a toilet plunger stowed alongside each toilet bowl in the house so that you can act fast if a problem arises. While the plunger may not completely resolve all blockages, it will prevent water from overflowing in most cases.
  • Make sure to keep the toilet as clean as possible, especially the drainage line. One cleaner in particular that our customers absolutely love is Roto-Rooter Drain Cleaner. The reason it is so popular is because it works! Pour it down any drain and watch it instantly dissolve blockages on contact, without hassle.
