A few common plumbing maintenance and repair jobs

Regular plumbing maintenance is the key to preventing bigger problems and more costly repairs. This requires paying close attention to your plumbing system and do regular inspections to catch leaks and other problems early. A leaking pipe can cause a lot more damage than you might think – surrounding wooden cupboards can seep up the water, causing it to rot and warp, causing damage to walls and paint and also creates the perfect environment for mould to grow.

Take the time every now and again to thoroughly examine your pipes, sinks, toilets and drains. If you do this regularly, you will be able to catch any plumbing related problems early enough to prevent extreme damage and costly repairs. You can look for signs of moisture or corrosion on pipes and taps. Check the walls that are adjacent  to your bathrooms and kitchen for mould or damaged paint job, which could mean an internal leaking pipe. If you do come across small plumbing maintenance jobs, and are not up for the repairs yourself, Vaaldriehoek Plumbing will gladly assist.
