Plumbing Maintenance Tips for Your Home’s Safety Presented By: http://www.nyhandymannyc.com/
Don’t Flush Everything Down The Drain • What causes blockage in drains? When you flush down things like fat, oils, and grease without bothering to segregate such stuff. If you continue this habit, your drainage pipes will get clogged demanding expensive repairs. • Keep your drain covered to prevent solid particles from going down.
Use Boiling Water To Clear The Drain Buildup • In case it takes a lot of time for the water to drain that indicates a blockage in your drainage pipes. Pouring boiling hot water down the drain will help to clear the buildup. • You can even use chemical based cleaning products but make sure you choose environmentally-friendly ones.
Leaving Hoses Out On Winter Can Cause Trouble • Never leave water hoses outside the house especially during the freezing weather. Instead you should remove hoses from the spigot before the winters even if they are freeze-proof. • Don’t forget to remove hoses from spigot and keep them inside as the fixture can burst due to freezing and expansion of the water.
Don’t Ignore A Leaky Faucet • Make sure you fix any leaky tap in your bathroom, kitchen or garden area. Failing to do so can damage your furniture or other important things of your house, in case the water fills into the place.
