Why Keeping Up With Your Bathroom Plumbing Maintenance is Essential

April 25, 2024

Proper indoor plumbing is essential to so many of our daily activities. From brushing your teeth to bathing, many of us take running water for granted – until it suddenly stops working.

While fluke plumbing breakdowns sometimes happen, proper plumbing maintenance can prevent the vast majority of leaks, clogs, and other issues. Plumbing upkeep isn’t something you want to put off, especially not when it comes to your bathrooms! We’ve broken down simple measures that can make a world of difference.

The Benefits of Staying Consistent With Plumbing Maintenance

Preventative plumbing maintenance prevents a slew of headache-inducing issues down the line. Staying consistent with plumbing care means little issues are caught while they’re still little – not after they’ve evolved into major damages. 

This saves you time and money in the long run. Just as importantly, preventative plumbing maintenance stops leaks and drips that can turn into mold, keeping your family healthier by ensuring good air quality.

The Most Common Bathroom Plumbing Repair Needs

So, what are some of the most common “little” issues that folks often push off getting repaired? The most common plumbing repair needs are:

  • Poor water pressure in the shower or sink: typically caused by corrosion or clogged aerators
  • Clogged drains: primarily due to soap residue and hair
  • Leaky faucets: points to old washers and corrosion
  • Toilet problems: toilets can overflow or waste water when they aren’t properly maintained

Addressing all of these promptly is pivotal to taking good care of your restrooms.

How Frequently You Should Have a Local Plumbing Company Inspection

If adding plumbing maintenance to your already-packed schedule seems too big an undertaking, don’t fret. Unless you notice a problem, you’ll typically only need a “check-up” once a year. 

ProFlo teams are known for excellent customer service. We’ll make sure we’re on time, efficient and thorough. We value your time as much as you do!

Which Plumbing Maintenance Items Can Be ‘DIY’

In between maintenance appointments, you can do some things to care for your bathroom plumbing yourself. While we don’t recommend taking on more significant tasks (too many folks have wasted hours trying to complete their own toilet repairs!), things like cleaning your drain stoppers and checking for leaks can absolutely be completed on your own! If you run into a hurdle, give the experienced plumbers at ProFlo a call.
