5 Tips for Cleaning Your Plumbing This Spring

undefinedSpring cleaning is always a great thing but when it comes to spring plumbing cleaning there are somethings you want to take into consideration.

Plumbing is a skill that requires training and certification to do properly. It isn't as easy as dumping some drain cleaner down the sink or sticking a plunger into the toilet.

Plumbing should be left to the plumbers, end of story.

That said, there are plenty of things you can do to spring clean your bathroom, sinks, toilets, and more without having to get into the plumbing side of things. Here are 5 tips to help get you started.

Caring for Your Drains

The best way to keep your drains clean is to ensure that you're not putting items down them that aren't meant to go into them.

If you don't have a garbage disposal unit don't put food down your kitchen sink. Also avoid flushing food or paper towels down the toilet.

Baby wipes are also a big clogging agent for toilets as well. If you need your drain thoroughly cleaned call your local plumbers and let them handle it for you.

Cleaning Your Toilet

Assuming your toilet isn't clogged you can handle cleaning it pretty easily. Just be sure that you're not mixing strange chemicals when you clean inside and outside the bowl.

Also don't neglect to check inside the tank as well to make sure everything is working as intended. If you notice any problems the plumber is just a phone call away.

Shower Head Cleaning

It is no secret that sometimes shower heads can lose their functionality as the years go by. Make sure that every so often you're taking your shower head off and thoroughly cleaning it to ensure that there is no buildup that can stop the water flow.

If you are having trouble getting water to come out of your shower head and it isn't the actual head that's the problem, call a plumber.

Cleaning Your Faucet

Cleaning the outside of your faucet is easy. Cleaning the inside isn't in most cases due to the fact that you have to take it apart. If there is something wrong with your faucet and you can't figure it out, let your plumber know ASAP.Temecula Plumbing Maintenance

Cleaning the Shower Drain

The shower drain is a huge candidate for clogs due to the hair and other materials that can build up in it. Sometimes the clog gets lodged somewhere in the pipes below the drain. If this is the case, it's time to call your plumber.

Spring is upon us, which means it's time to freshen up your Temecula home. Give 24-7 Plumbing and Drain a call at (951) 338-9844for all your plumbing maintenance needs.
