You schedule yearly physicals to maintain optimal health. You schedule regular car maintenance to keep your car running smoothly. Like your body and your car, your home is made up of multiple parts working together for your optimal experience. And it’s only when something is amiss that we understand the importance of each part.
Your home’s plumbing system has one of the biggest responsibilities of the home. And any person who’s ever had plumbing problems on the eve of an important event can attest to that. But most people aren’t very proactive about this worker-bee system. The truth of the matter is, just like everything else we use on a regular basis, your plumbing system suffers wear and tear over time. Pipes and drains are designed for durability. However, everyday shortcuts and conveniences like liquid drain cleaners and fresheners for garbage disposals and toilets can cause more harm than good. Luckily, a lot of plumbing issues are preventable. All you need is routine maintenance and a little due diligence.
While the upkeep to a septic tank system might be a little more detailed than a sewer plumbing system, it’s still easy to keep in good shape with regular maintenance. Pumping your septic tank every 3-5 years is probably the most important thing you can do to protect your system. Otherwise, the buildup of solids in the tank could rise too high and clog the drainfield. That could strain and damage the system and require you to replace the drainfield, a messy, smelly, and most importantly, costly project.
And don’t forget about your A/C. It’s a right of passage as a Floridian to come to terms with the heat. It’s severe and long lasting, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through it! Pre-season maintenance of your A/C unit can help you avoid a system failure during severe weather conditions, and keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
