Are You Forgetting Something on Your Spring Cleaning Checklist?

Are you making a list and checking it twice? This time, it’s not for Christmas but for your annual Spring Cleaning. Scrubbing the counters, cleaning the bathrooms, going through the clutter to find out which items you no longer need to keep.

All of these things (and probably lots more) are on your yearly Spring Cleaning to-do list. However, there are a few important things that should be on your list that might not be.

As thorough as you may be during the annual scrub down, the cleaning should go beneath the surfaces of your house. Hiring a professional out to perform some basic plumbing maintenance may not help your countertops sparkle any brighter but they are essential additions to your checklist.

Checklist Addition #1: Drain Cleaning

A clog or backup is a nightmare. One thing to add to your Spring Cleaning list is drain cleaning to help prevent this sticky situation.

Instead of having to run a snake through your drain, which is expensive, simple drain cleaning can keep everything flowing. It will be far less expensive than treating a full-blown clog and you won’t have to settle for the first available plumber to handle your emergency.

Checklist Addition #2: Sewer Cleaning

Even with that in mind, the vast majority of homeowners fall behind the crucial job of maintaining their sewer lines.

Rather than having to deal with the catastrophe of a sewer failure, a professional plumber can come out to clean your sewer lines for an affordable rate.

Checklist Addition #3: Saving Money

Repairs to clogged drains and backed up sewer lines can easily cost hundreds of dollars. In addition, the livability of your house during the time of these repairs is severely diminished, if not completely obliterated.

Having these systems maintained regularly can avoid the costly emergency repairs that come with breakdowns. Paying for these services now can help save you money down the road. Spring Cleaning is a lot of work.

Thankfully, these few checklist items don’t require you to do a lot of work. Your biggest job will be to pick up the phone and call one of the professionals at Water Heater Medic at (860) 896-3342 and we’ll be happy to do the plumbing maintenance for you.

This will free you up to get back to the more fun parts of Spring. The warmer weather and return of sunny should call to you and enjoy the fun. Avoiding a clog of your sewer or drain will certainly make sure that you continue to enjoy the Spring.
