It’s Time to Spring Clean Your Plumbing

Spring cleaning – a time to declutter your homes, donate some old clothes, and take care of some seasonal plumbing maintenance! Yes, that’s right, it’s time to spring clean your plumbing and transition your winterized home to the season ahead.

Be sure to add the below to your to do list:

Check for leaks and damage – Faucets located outside of your home are more susceptible to damage due to harsh winter weather and built up debris. Do a sweep to see if there’s any significant damage or leaks, both inside and outside the home.

Check your air conditioning unit – Routine cleaning not only prolongs the life of your unit, but having an unclogged, debris-less, clean coil unit will help it to function more efficiently.

Check your toilets – Make sure your toilets are flushing properly. If not, you may need to replace worn tank parts (and lower your water bill in the process!)

Check your hot water heater – Make sure the temperature setting is no higher than 120 F to prevent possible scalding and extra energy usage.

Check shower heads – Remove mineral deposit build-up on shower heads by soaking them overnight in vinegar. Simply take a plastic baggie with vinegar, place it over the shower head and secure it in place with a rubber band. Once removed, gently scrub away with an old toothbrush.

Once you’ve successfully given your home a once-over – call one of our experts at Patterson Plumbing & Heating to take care of any problems you may find. A specialist will come by, diagnose the plumbing problem, make recommendations and prepare pricing by the job – not the hour – so there are no surprises. Give us a call at 719-544-4922!

It’s that time of year, your kids will be swapping their swimsuits for backpacks and the transition from the lazy days of summer to busy school schedules will be upon you. This change in routine can not only be stressful on you and your family – but your pipes as well!

With the entire family getting ready for work and school at once, your plumbing system needs to be prepared. See below for some tips to ensure you start this school year off on a good foot:

  • Split showers between mornings and nights. Staggering bathing times helps to ensure optimal water temperature and pressure for everybody. You may want to consider putting in a place a minutes maximum bathing time rule as well.
  • Help avoid moisture problems and keep cooling costs down, run the bathroom fan during and after showers/baths for 15 minutes to control humidity
  • Using faucets for personal hygiene can take up approximately 12% of your home’s water usage! Turn off the tap between wetting your toothbrush and rinsing your mouth!
  • Be mindful of what is put down the drain or toilet. Make sure unwanted items go where they belong otherwise you may have a clogged toilet or drain on your hands.
