Plumbing is an attribute of the home several people forget about until there is a leak, or even worse, a pipe burst. Even though the majority of homeowners will require Orlando plumbing services at some point in their lives, there are some simple things you can do in order to prevent frequent plumber visits. Consider the following simple plumbing tips from the plumbers at Drain Genie Plumbing Services in Orlando to help keep your plumbing working as efficient as possible.

Avoid The Following Orlando Plumbing Problems

Hair Clogged Drains

One of the most common reason drains get clogged is from a build up from excess hair. Purchase a cover for your drain to prevent hair from going down the tub or shower drains. Try to clean them after each shower or bath to prevent a clog from forming in your Orlando bathroom. This is usually something that can be fixed with a hanger and some drain cleaner, however the problem persists it is not one you should ignore. If you notice water pooling at the bottom of your bathtub, shower, or sink, and your at-home attempts to fix it aren’t working, contact Drain Genie, your trusted Orlando plumbing company.

Grease Clogged Drains

A grease clogged drain is another reason homeowners find themselves in need of an Orlando plumber. The first thing you can try is to purchase a product from the hardware store made just for this purpose. These products often work wonders and will have your drains flowing freely in a short time. An even cheaper remedy to do preventively is to periodically pour boiling, soapy water down the drains to help reduce the greasy buildup. This doesn’t work as well on a drain that is already clogged, so put it on your schedule to do as one of your regular chores.

Frozen Pipes

Luckily for residents in Orlando, frozen pipes are not as big of a concern as in other parts of the country. Frozen pipes can cause big problems for home owners during the months where temperatures drop below freezing. Unfortunately it is a problem that can lead to serious damage of your plumbing system. The best way to prevent your pipes from freezing is to make sure they are heated or insulated. This will prevent them from freezing. Another tip to make sure they don’t freeze is to keep a close watch on the weather. If the weather report is calling for sub-zero temperatures, then you’d be wise to turn your faucets on in each room before you go to bed to just a slow trickle/drip. The water moving through the pipe will prevent the pipe from freezing.
