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.
