It’s easy to take your plumbing for granted when it’s working properly. However, if you experience plumbing problems, you may wish that you had taken steps to prevent them from happening in the first place. A little bit of preventive maintenance can go a long way in keeping your plumbing running smoothly. Keep cooking grease out of your drains, as it will cool and harden, leading to clogs. Use drain screens on your sinks and showers to help keep hair, soap slivers, and small objects from going where they don’t belong. Do a regular check for leaks around your home, paying attention any dampness you find in cabinets, floors, or walls.
