Don’t Let Noisy Pipes Get You Down
The last thing you want o hear when you finally get moved into your home is noisy pipes. Unfortunately, this is the reality of home ownership. Things go wrong, stuff needs fixing, and you are the one that gets to worry about it. The rewards of owning over renting are legion, but there are times when you really wish you could let the landlord deal with all of the problems.
If you are a do-it-yourself type of person, then home maintenance will be fun and exciting for you. Knowing that you can fix or replace that leaky faucet gives you satisfaction and you don’t have to pay someone else to do these jobs for you. You are self reliant! However, sometimes things like noisy pipes crop up and you find that fixing them is beyond the set of skills you possess. This is the time you call in Rapid-Rooter and let them do their thing. They are trained to handle any type of plumbing needs and can be there whenever you need them, morning, noon, or night, every single day of the year.
If you have noise in your pipes, the reason is probably that one or more of them is loose. When the water is turned on and the pressure changes inside the pipe, it rattles against something inside the wall. These pipes need to be located and fixed to avoid leaking water. Water where it shouldn’t be ruins floors, walls, ceilings, carpeting, and furniture, and when left unaddressed, encourages the growth of mold and mildew. Even if they have to cut ten holes in your wall to get to the problem, it is worth it to not having water leaking inside. Holes can be patched, and you can rest easy.
Do you get clogged pipes on a regular basis? Where do you have the biggest problem? For many folks, the kitchen drain is the one that gives them the most trouble. The culprit in these cases is almost always the food disposer. Failing to run it long enough to grind the food up small enough, and neglecting to run the water through it the entire time it is on, will encourage clogs to form from grease and food particles. Take the time to educate everyone in your household on the proper use of the food disposer. Also, use an enzyme product regularly to keep the pipes clean.
