With Thanksgiving just around the corner (it’s closer than you think!) your plate of things to do is probably spilling over. The family is coming over, so the rooms are being readied for guests and the grocery list is ever expanding. You’ve prepared the bedrooms with fresh linens and put fresh towels in the bathroom. You feel ready, but there’s one thing we advise you take a look at before the guests start arriving: your plumbing.
Did you know that your plumbing takes a big hit around the Holidays? More house guests equal heavier usage than your house is used to, from the kitchen to the bathroom. So without proper preparation, you never know what things could possibly go wrong. This time of year already tends to be an expensive season, so don’t let unexpected emergency repair costs add to that.
Common Holiday Plumbing Issues
It’s easy to understand that more people in the house equals more bathroom usage, but it’s so much more than that. During the Holidays, guests use as many elements of your water system as you do, from the water heater for hot showers and laundry to the fridge and ice maker to the sinks and dishwasher. Imagine what happens to your water supply and plumbing when a house that normally holds 3 people suddenly holds 10.
And of course, with holiday dinners, the amount of eating skyrockets, and therefore the amount of food preparation and the number of dishes afterward. Bathroom usage is much more constant than throughout the year. Your water heater is in constant motion and laundry needs to be done much more frequently. While you may think this usage is just a brief time in November or December, Phoenix plumbing emergencies actually peak at this time of the year. Therefore, it’s best to be prepared in order to avoid potential emergency scenarios that can spoil your holidays.
What Happens During a Plumbing Inspection
We want to make sure your plumbing is in top shape for the Holidays. You never know where there are water leaks or damage in places you cannot see that could cause a much bigger problem – especially when the usage of your water system climbs so quickly with more people in the house. Plumbing can also be damaged by things that have happened throughout the year, such as shifting concrete slabs or growing roots.
Penguin Air, Plumbing & Electrical offers a comprehensive Phoenix plumbing inspection service to make sure these things are taken care of before the guests arrive – and now is the time to call.
During a plumbing inspection, we cover the following areas:
- Fridge/Ice maker
- Laundry room
- Water Heater
- General Water Service
Within each of these areas, we inspect shut off valves, angle stops, connection points, faucets, drains, shower heads, hoses, supply risers and so much more. Our expertly trained and reliable plumbing professionals make sure that there is no damage and that each element of your water supply is working smoothly. If there is damage, we recommend repairs that will help to save you money before a big disaster can happen.
