Annual Maintenance on Fixtures

As a Santa Cruz homeowner, you may take a number of important steps to maintain your home and to prevent repair issues from developing. However, most homeowners are not aware that their plumbing features need to receive maintenance service as well.

Santa Cruz, CA Faucets-and-Fixtures-MaintenanceYour Santa Cruz home plumbing features are among the most important in your home, providing you with a convenient source of hot and cold water that can be used for everything from cooking and cleaning to bathing and more.

With regular maintenance on your home's plumbing system, you can enjoy several fabulous benefits.

Avoiding Expensive Water Waste

Many plumbing repair issues can result in wasted water, and this means that your home water bills may be unnecessarily high.

Water waste can also be bad for the environment, and you may want to do everything you can to avoid this. One common cause of water waste is a slow drip with your faucets.

This may be easy to put off repairing for another day because it may seem like a bothersome inconvenience, but a slow drip can waste a lot of water over time. Simply tightening the screws in your faucet can reduce the chance of you having a dripping faucet.

Minimize Downtime With Your Plumbing System

Some plumbing features may continue to work for you despite having issues that need to be dealt with, but many will require you to turn off the water supply or to stop using the features until the repair issue is resolved.

Maintenance on your plumbing features can keep everything functioning well as it should, and this means that there is a reduced chance of you having to deal with hours or even days without access to some of your plumbing features.

Eliminating Significant Repair Issues

In many cases, identifying an issue early on can reduce the chance of that issue growing into a significant problem. For example, minor corrosion or build-up in a faucet can easily be removed with cleaning and maintenance.

If the problem goes untreated, however, the entire faucet may need to be replaced. Nobody wants to contend with serious repair issues, so a smart idea is to use preventative maintenance service to identify problems before they become serious.

Your faucets and fixtures may seem like seemingly minor features to worry about maintaining, but repair issues with them can result in unnecessary expense and inconvenience. Annual maintenance is a great idea, and you can easily schedule service with a plumber for all of your fixtures and faucets.
