If you’re like the vast majority of the population, your home is undoubtedly your biggest financial expense and every month it can feel like you’re buying something new to “make it better.” But what if we told you that there was a way to spend less on your home and have more money for other things such as holidays, weekend breaks and eating out? Nope, we’re not kidding. All of this can be achieved simply by committing to a maintenance check-up at least once per year with your plumbing contractor. New Canadian Drain & Plumbing has worked with thousands of homeowners in Toronto, Richmond Hill, Maple, King City, Stouffville, Newmarket and Aurora in the last few years and plumbing maintenance is something that we see consistently neglected. During this article we are going to show you exactly why you should contact your plumbing contractor each year to arrange a “check-up.”
Four Reasons Why You Should Contact Your Plumbing Contractor for Maintenance this Year
Failure to maintain your plumbing can have a number of negative effects and for the large part the only reason homeowners don’t commit to an annual plumbing check-up is simply because they are not properly informed about the subject. Here’s a few reasons why you would be wise to break that trend.
- Far Greater Lifespan – Your plumbing system will last for a long time (which is good as many of the components are expensive to replace), but it will last even longer if it is properly maintained. The plumbing is one of the most used parts of the average household and the stresses and strains of such frequent use will eventually render certain parts of the system “non-functional,” meaning they have to be replaced. By having a plumbing contractor give the system the once-over each year, a number of problems can be prevented before they are given the chance to develop.
- More Efficient Plumbing – Does your bathtub take much longer to drain than it once did? What about your kitchen sink? The efficiency with which certain elements of home plumbing function depends on how well they are looked after. If pipes are allowed to clog up with debris, eventually the ease with which waste products are allowed to flow through these pipes and into the public sewage system will be reduced.
- Fewer Repairs – Repairs and emergency plumbing call outs can really start to add up financially, but if your plumbing is kept in good condition (a professional plumbing contractor will be able to give you tips with regards to how you can do this), then the likelihood of either of these things being required is reduced significantly.
- Peace of Mind – When you go away for a 2 week vacation the last thing you want to be worrying about is whether an emergency plumbing issue is going to develop while you’re away. Imagine if an old pipe bursts and water continues to seep into the interior of your home while you’re not there. Needless to say, the damage that would be caused by such a problem could be extremely expensive to put right. However, if your had a plumbing contractor check over your system on a regular basis, you wouldn’t have to worry as you would know that everything was in good condition. Visit us on Google+
