This year we suggest adding some basic items to your Spring Cleaning to-do list for your Atlanta, GA. home or business. Simple maintenance can help prevent bigger and more expensive problems down the road.
In your kitchen and bathrooms we suggest making sure all the sinks and showers have strainers to prevent debris from clogging the drains. This is also a good time to clean or replace your showerhead. Also, check under sink cabinets to make sure there are not any leaking pipes, garbage disposals, or pipe seals. Also check and around faucets. You should also make sure your toilet handle is working correctly, and if you have had a dripping faucet or running toilet now is the time to get repairs made and lower your water bill.
In basements we suggest testing sump pumps and back up sump pumps. You should also flush out your water heater by draining a couple gallons of water. If you have boxes and items on the floor, we suggest putting them on metal shelves to prevent them from being invaded by pests or damaged by water. If your basement is moldy you may need to call a plumber to make sure there isn’t a major problem, and also start running a humidifier.
Spring is also a good time to have your vents cleaned. You will be running your air conditioner all summer, so now is a good time to make sure it is in working order and that the vents are cleaned for optimum air quality. If you have an older unit, now is the time to replace it before the summer weather overwhelms the old equipment. At Fulton Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning we have an ultimate tune up program that is a great investment for your heating and air conditioning equipment.
Lastly, because the weather is warming up, now is a good time to check for a slow leak. Before going to bed record the reading on your water meter. That night make sure no one uses the water. Then first thing in the morning check the meter again. If the reading has changed you have a slow leak and need to call a plumber before it becomes a major problem.
Simple maintenance and repairs keeps your plumbing, heating, and air conditioning system running smoothly. And Spring Cleaning is a great opportunity to start the habit.
