Plumbing Maintenance: Gutters, Faucets, Storm Drains, Sewage Piping

An efficient plumbing system comes in handy for every home. Without such efficiency, you will experience many challenges using your kitchen, bathroom, as well as the drainage. About 15% of the total value of your home is determined by the state of your home’s plumbing system. Everyone who moves to a new house expects to find an efficient and smoothly running plumbing system although that is not always a guarantee for most homes. So, before you engage a moving company, ensure that your new home has an operational plumbing system.

 

 

Here are some plumbing maintenance tips that you can practice often to ensure a smoothly operating as well as efficient system:

Gutters

Gutters play a significant role in draining water off roofs and preventing damage to the walls. However, such functionality is not possible if the gutters are full of debris and leaves. In case the gutters are not clean, it becomes hard for rainwater to flow easily and you will experience overflow which will lead to loosening of the gutters. Before calling your moving company to bring in your household items, it is advisable to check the gutters and remove any debris and leaves that might affect the water flow.

Faucets

Bathroom and kitchen faucets need appropriate care and maintenance to make them attractive and offer you service for many years. Use a damp cloth everyday day alongside mild soap to clean your faucets after which you can use a soft cloth to dry them. Avoid using abrasive and harsh cleaners as these can affect the finish of the faucets. The constant use of hard water on faucets can lead to deposits that can be hard to clean with a normal piece of cloth but a window cleaner can remove the deposits with ease.

Storm Drains

Stormwater needs proper control to avoid damage to neighboring structures. If the storm drains are not cleaned, debris and other materials will accumulate making it hard for stormwater to flow smoothly. If the drains are blocked, you will experience back-ups that can have adverse impacts on your home. When planning to move to any new house, it is important to evaluate the status of the storm drains to make sure that they are in good shape to avoid blockage and back-ups. Drains are better cleaned up as soon as possible because waiting for some more time would escalate the problem.

Sewage Piping

Maintaining a sewer line is a very crucial element in any home. It is advisable to prevent the blockage of sewage pipes and you can do this if you avoid washing grease, oils, and fats down the pipes. If you move to a new house, it is important to inspect the sewage piping for any debris, leaves, and mud.

When you plan to move to a new house, your expectations are to get a house that has a well-functioning plumbing system. Make sure that you examine and repair all the plumbing aspects starting from gutters, faucets, storm drains, and sewage piping.
