The Benefits of Regular Plumbing Maintenance

Just like keeping up with the maintenance of your car, keeping up with your plumbing is important for preventing major repairs down the road.

Today, let’s look at some of the biggest benefits of scheduling regular plumbing maintenance services.

Plumbing Maintenance Isn’t New!

Did you know that both the ancient Greeks and the ancient Romans had intricate water systems?

Ancient Plumbing

Even thousands of years ago, some civilizations had centralized water systems that brought water into homes and even had underground pipes to remove wastewater. It took a few hundred years, but these systems made their way to North America and Europe before advancing into the modern plumbing we know today.

Even though we’re not in Rome, we’re still doing as the Romans do. Although we’ve come a long way, for thousands of years, plumbing maintenance has been important for these systems working in top order.

What to Expect During a Plumbing Maintenance Service

Your home’s plumbing system is made up of a lot of different parts, and it’s crucial to make sure that every single one is in tip-top shape. So, what can you expect during a plumbing maintenance service? Let’s break it down:


Your plumber will be on the lookout for any blockages, build-ups, or leaks from the bathroom to the kitchen to the outdoor spigot. Even the tiniest leak can cause major property damage over time and lead to a higher water bill, so it’s important to address any issues as soon as possible.

Faucet Maintenance Drains

Slow-draining water in your bathtub, kitchen, or other drains in your home could be a sign of a larger issue, so your plumber will check every single drain in your home. Catching potential blockages early can save you from more extensive plumbing problems later on.


Just like with faucets and drains, any leaks or blockages in your toilet or toilet tank can lead to significant damage. Since you use your toilet so frequently, it’s crucial to keep it in top condition.

Water Heater

During a routine maintenance service, your plumber will check the temperature, relief valve, and other parts of your water heater. Regular inspections and quick repairs are key to preventing major flooding and a lack of hot water.


Since you can’t see most of your home’s pipes, it’s especially important to have them checked for damage, leaks, or inconsistencies in water pressure during a routine maintenance service. A burst pipe can cause major damage to your home, so don’t skip this step!

Garbage Disposal

The garbage disposal might not get a lot of love, but it’s a crucial kitchen appliance. Your plumber will check for any blockages or build-up that could lead to issues with your plumbing system.

Emergency plumbing problems can put a strain on your wallet, but it can put way more of a stain on your mental health! Regular maintenance can identify potential issues and prevent them from turning into major problems that require emergency repairs.
