Are you looking for tips and tricks on how to really take care of your home? Are you looking for ways that you can make sure you have everything you need and that your home is prepared for anything? If you’re talking about your plumbing then you’re in the right place. You need a plumber who can give you advice and support about what to do with your plumbing to keep it running smoothly and make sure that you need as few major repairs as possible for your New Orleans, LA home.
Keep Everything Out of the Drains
You don’t want to put anything into your drains except water and dish soap. Or when it comes to your bathroom, things like toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo/conditioner, soap, human waste, and minimal amounts of toilet paper. Anything else should be kept out of your drains. And really, you should limit how much of most of these things you’re putting into your drains as well. The more ‘pure’ the items you put into your drains are the better it’s going to be. That means more water and less beauty products, for example.
By keeping things out of the drains that don’t really belong there you’re going to decrease your need for a plumber. In fact, you’re going to decrease your need for a lot of things. When you put all of these other things into your drains you’re going to be more likely to need drain cleaning service and you’ll be more likely to have damage to your drains. After all, different types of products could clog your drains or they could actually wear away at them and cause them to break down. None of that is something you want to happen.
Avoid the Chemicals
This one goes along with keeping everything out of your drains but it’s important enough to get its own category as well. You want to make sure that you’re staying away from chemicals in your drains. This includes things you use for construction and home improvement projects as well as things that are marketed for your drains. Drain cleaners are definitely not what you would expect them to be and they can actually cause a whole lot more harm than good. You want to make sure you’re avoiding these and contacting a plumber if you find yourself in need of drain cleaning.
Using chemicals in your drains can break down the pipes. Some cleaners are going to be worse for PVC pipes while others will be worse for older, copper and steel pipes. But no matter what type of pipes you have, chemicals are something you should avoid. You want to know that your home is going to be in good shape and that it’s protected against damage. You want to know that you’re going to keep it working and functioning for you for a long time. And you definitely want to avoid costly repairs, right?
Get Regular Drain Cleaning
This may not seem like something you would need if you’re diligent about what you put into your drains. But the truth is you still need regular drain cleaning. If you’re doing what you can to avoid putting anything into your drains you’re going to be in better shape with this because your drain cleaning shouldn’t be anything major, but you’re still going to want to get it done. Even tiny amounts of something that get down into your drains without you realizing it can cause problems and you want to get that taken care of before the problems start.
Also, regular drain cleaning can help you find some other types of problems that you might not realize otherwise. It could find leaks in your pipes that have been going on for a while and costing you a lot of money. It could find damage to some pipes that can be fixed before the problem gets worse or causes leaks. In short, it could save you a whole lot of time, effort, and money in the long run if you get regular drain cleaning and see what you can do about taking care of your drains right away.
