Plumbing & Water Maintenance 

Plumbing Inspection in Northern VA

Your pipes and plumbing are a complex infrastructure maze that delivers water for meals, cleanup and family productivity. While you may not think of your home’s plumbing as an integrated system requiring maintenance, neglected pipes and fixtures lead to costly problems over time.

Corrosion, weathering, mineral buildup and years of use take their toll, causing restricted water flow, invasion of contaminants, plumbing leaks or burst pipes. All it takes is one tiny, undetected leak to create a moist environment that invites mold and mildew. Faucet drips and larger pipe breaches can stain fixtures, damage walls or floors and run up water bills. Fortunately, Parrish Services provides routine plumbing and water maintenance to fend off these hazards and preserve your home’s safety and value.

Easy Plumbing Maintenance Tips

You can care for your plumbing by being observant and addressing minor issues quickly—before they become serious and expensive plumbing problems. Start by applying these preventative maintenance procedures regularly:

  • Dispose of grease or oil in the trash, not the kitchen drain.
  • Use sink strainers to catch hair, food scraps and small objects from blocking kitchen, bath or laundry drains.
  • Check slow drains and clear clogs immediately.
  • Run cold water for 15 seconds after using the garbage disposal.
  • Change washers at the first sign of dripping faucets.
  • Clean washing machine lint traps.
  • Check for moisture and pipe leaks under sinks.
  • Investigate foul odors or signs of mildew.
  • Clean showerheads and faucet aerators.
  • Know when to call a certified NoVA plumber. Scalding hazards, major leaks and contaminated water should be left to the pros.

Just a standard maintenance evaluation on my HVAC system but my tech was on time, polite, thorough and knowledgeable. He advised me on parts I can replace myself to buy a little more time with my current older unit rather than trying to upsell me. He advised that I will likely need a new unit in the next couple of years, but again did so without any pressure to address prematurely. Overall it was great exchange and established a sense of honest trade work. This will not be forgotten when it is time to buy a new system!

This was our 1st annual check up. Robert was very helpful and professional. However, we found the prices to be very high. We’ll have to really consider the recommendations.

When your air conditioner goes out, and it's July...the hottest month of the's an emergency! So I took the first appointment I could get with a company that used a bait and switch technique of leading me to believe they could come soon- only to later confess they would have to come later. I kept calling around and got someone at Parrish Services. They were honest about what they could and could not do. They sent out true professionals who diagnosed the problem within 10 minutes...fixed it, and spoke honestly about what they were doing and what to look out for in the future! Thank you Parrish Services!!

I have had a service contract with Parrish Services for many years. Everyone now and again I get pleasantly surprised with service for an issue that is most unpleasant.I had my semi-annual service check done 2 weeks ago. Over the past 2 days it's been warm in the house. I called Parrish to come back to look at the A/C system again. In a matter of 2 hours they were able to schedule next-day service, and the tech re-arranged his calls for service so that he spent less time driving. That meant I was next on his schedule based on location of service calls.The tech ended up locating a major coolant leak. We opted for the lesser of two expenses by having the coil replaced (a quarter of the price of a brand new unit; still not cheap, but better than replacing the entire unit).I am thankful for Parrish Services' scheduling diligence and courteous service. They bent over backwards to schedule a next-day appointment during a stretch of the year when they have an overabundance of A/C service calls.
