5 Plumbing Jobs You Should Leave to the Pros

Posted on January 10th, 2017 by BlueMountain

When a problem arises, homeowners tend to turn to “Do-It-Yourself” home improvement projects. But if done incorrectly, DIY projects can lead to more serious issues especially when it comes to your plumbing. Instead of trying to fix the problem yourself, leave these plumbing jobs to the professionals:

Drain cleaning
Clogged drains are very common and people often treat the problem with chemicals, which ends up making the issue worse. Be mindful of what you put down the drain, especially the kitchen sink, which is the most used and clogged drain in the house.

Installing new fixtures
Many homeowners install fixtures for decorative purposes. While not all plumbers sell new faucets, they can help install them. Allowing an expert to help with this job reduces the risk of water damage to your property.

Remodeling
While there are plenty of DIY decorations you can try when redesigning your home, leave the big jobs to the professionals. Hiring a licensed local plumber would ensure no code violations and the best quality work.

Leaky pipes
This plumbing problem can cause extensive damage to your floors, walls, and belongings. Check your pipes for rust or white lime deposits, an indication of the beginning of a leak.

Broken garbage disposals
Malfunctions with your garbage disposal can be a very messy and frustrating problem to fix. Hire an expert technician to help repair and prevent the issue from reoccurring..
