As the flowers begin to bloom and temperatures rise, it’s time to shake off the winter blues and embrace spring! While you are busy decluttering closets, mopping the floors, and dusting, don’t forget about your plumbing system.

As we enter a new season, now is the perfect time to give your plumbing a little extra TLC to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently. Let’s dive into some spring cleaning tips tailored to your plumbing so you can maintain a happy and stress-free home.

Check for Leaks and Drips

Spring is a great time to inspect your plumbing fixtures for any leaks or drips – especially if you have noticed higher energy bills. Check for any signs of damage and contact a professional if a repair is needed.

Inspect Outdoor Plumbing

The harsher winter weather may have negatively impacted your outdoor plumbing, so make sure you give it some extra attention. Look for any signs of damage or leaks in your outdoor plumbing components, including hoses, sprinkler systems, and faucets.

Clean Drains and Gutters

Clogged drains and gutters can cause water backup and potential damage to your home. Grab a pair of gloves and clean out the debris from gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage. Inside your home, use natural remedies like baking soda to make your drains squeaky clean!

Tidy Up Your Garbage Disposal

Whether you use your garbage disposal often or not very frequently, it is best to thoroughly clean it. As you prepare to start hosting more parties and gatherings during the warmer months, now is also a great time to refresh your memory on what items should and should not go down your disposal.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

One of the best things you can do for your plumbing system is to schedule a professional plumbing inspection and maintenance service. A licensed plumber can identify any potential issues and perform the necessary repairs. This can give you peace of mind and ensure your home stays problem-free this spring. 

Spring cleaning isn’t just about tidying up your living space – it is also an excellent opportunity to give your plumbing system the attention it deserves. The experts at Total Maintenance, Inc. would love to work with you to get your home in tip-top shape for the spring!
