There are a number of things professional plumbers can do to ensure your home’s plumbing system works efficiently and effectively. The following are 5 things you should have a professional take care of as soon as possible this spring.
Check For Leaks And Drips
Leaky pipes can damage your cabinets, lead to mold and mildew, and increase your water bill. It can also damage to your floors and your foundation if it is left unchecked.

Sump pumps are one of the most neglected parts of most plumbing systems. Snow during the winter and spring showers can put additional stress on your sump pump. This can make your home susceptible to flooding and cause water to back up into your basement.

These clogs can cause back-ups in your kitchen and bathrooms, damage your floor coverings and potentially cause health problems. Call in a plumber and have them thoroughly clean and inspect your drains.
Control Tree Roots
Tree roots can cause a nightmare for home owners. They can puncture and damage drain and water pipes, impact your foundation, and cause all kind of other problems on your property. A skilled, experienced plumber can identify potential problems tree roots can cause for your pipes and drains.
