Plumbing Spring Cleaning Tips

Emergency Plumber NYCSpring is finally here. Many homeowners are excited about the warmer weather and getting outside. The end of winter also rings in spring cleaning. Do not forget about your plumbing when you’re doing your house cleaning. Spring cleaning your plumbing fixtures now will help avoid you having to call in an emergency plumber in NYC to fix a disaster.

When it comes to plumbing spring cleaning, there are four main areas to focus on: appliances, kitchen/bathrooms, outside, and general maintenance.

Outside
During the winter, it’s common for gutters, downspouts, and yard drains to become cluttered with debris. Make sure these areas are cleared out. Ensure that no outdoor plumbing vent pipes are blocked. Lastly, you’ll want to ensure that water flows freely from any outdoor faucets or hose bibs.

Kitchen/Bathrooms
While cleaning your kitchen and bathroom, it’s a good idea to perform some routine maintenance. Check all faucets and pipes for any leaks or drips and ensure there are no clogs. Test your toilet for any leaks by adding food coloring to the tank. If the color enters the bowl, it may signify a leak. If you notice any leaks or clogs, call us for the best plumber NYC offers.

General Maintenance
Any infrequently used drains should be flushed out by pouring a gallon of water into the drain. All exposed pipes should be checked for leaks, and ensure that your sump pump works properly.

Appliances
Check the status of your water heater to ensure it’s working properly. If it’s older than fifteen years, it may be time for a replacement. Check the supply hoses to the dishwasher and washing machine for any signs of leaks.
