Prevent Water Damages Before They Happen
Be careful where you plant plants and trees that have intense roots. If you are not careful, they will grow right into your sprinkler system, drainage field, and pipes.
If you see lots of leaves, sticks, and such up in your gutters, they need to be cleaned out. On a rainy day, a clogged gutter can send water spilling into your home’s foundation and through the roof, which could cause some serious water damage!
With so many water pipes hidden behind walls and in the floors in your house, you might not know there is a leak until the damage is done. It is a good idea to keep a close eye on your monthly water bill. If you see it starting to creep up, or get one that is uncommonly high, it’s a pretty good sign that you may have a leak somewhere.
It is inevitable, kitchen and bathroom clogs are going to happen. Chances are at some point in your life you’ve used one of those powerful chemical drain cleaners to get things moving again. But as convenient as they may be, most folks don’t realize those caustic chemicals are also eating away at their pipes. If you rely on them a lot, you could be setting yourself up for leaks. That’s why owning a drain snake is a good solution to clear away clogs.
You should definitely avoid pouring grease down your kitchen sink. It doesn’t matter if you flush it with hot or cold water. It can still congeal and cling to your pipes and could still cause some serious damage and blockage.
