Most of the time, we think of plumbing as being a non-issue when it comes to regular inspections. There are certainly other parts of a home or business that need attention annually, but plumbing may not make the list. However, there is a reason to schedule plumbing services regularly depending on your home or business’s age, location, and the condition of the plumbing.
Here are a few rules of thumb to follow when it comes to scheduling annual plumbing services:
- Age – One of the first ways you can determine how often to schedule routine plumbing services is by knowing the age of your home. For example, if your home is newer, you may only need to schedule plumbing inspections every two to three years. This is a good way to ensure your plumbing inside and outside is in good working condition and isn’t in danger of becoming clogged or broken.
- Location – The location of your home or business is another consideration for annual plumbing services. If you live in an area surrounded by trees, the tree roots can actually clog your drains and other underground plumbing lines, creating groundwater backups all the way into your home. If your business is in a low-lying area and experiences problems with water drainage, having your plumbing checked more frequently may be a good idea.
- Condition – One of the reasons annual plumbing services are so important is because your plumber can give you a report on the condition of your plumbing. If you live in a historic home or operate a business in an older building, you will want to address potential plumbing problems before they create a major mess! Scheduling a routine plumbing inspection is a great way to be proactive about plumbing concerns.
