Easy Pipe Maintenance Tips

Pipe Maintenance In Las Vegas

Pro pipe maintenance is a small investment that pays off when you avoid emergency leaks and enjoy consistently powerful showers for years. ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers excellent pipe maintenance services and we’re glad to share our expertise with you.

How Often Should Pipes Be Cleaned?

First of all, we recommend regular plumbing maintenance at your Las Vegas home every six months. During that time, we’ll check out your pipes and deal with them if they’re blocked or dirty.

However, pipe cleaning specifically should be done around every 18 months. We use high-pressure water to blast any debris out of your pipes and leave them clean and sanitary.

How Do You Maintain Pipes When They’re Outdoors?

Outdoor pipes deal with a lot. Extreme heat in the summer, the Las Vegas chill in the winter, and depending on where they’re placed, they may be at risk of storm damage.

For this reason, it’s particularly important to check them for any signs of damage after a storm and call our pipe maintenance team if anything looks abnormal.

How Do You Maintain Drainage Pipes?

It’s easy when you know how. Here’s your three-point mini plumbing maintenance checklist.

#1. Use A Drain Guard

The absolute simplest of the pipe maintenance tools, and they’re cheap, too. Drain guards make sure that food waste from the kitchen and hair, nail clippings, and everything else from the bathroom doesn’t make its way into the drain.

#2. Put That Fat In The Trash!

This includes oils. Even if you wash the dishes with hot water, fat from cooking can harden somewhere cold, and block everything up.

#3. Be Alert To Changes

Poor drainage often gets worse the longer you leave it. If you notice a change in the speed at which your water is draining, call ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing now so that a partial blockage doesn’t mean game over next week.

Is Pipeline Flushing Necessary?

That depends.

Do you want to drink, or bathe in, water that might contain algae, sludge, or rust? Probably not. And are you sure the cooking fat that went down the drain hasn’t stuck around somewhere?

Great pipe maintenance means that the water in your home is fresh, safe, and keeps flowing freely around the clock.

Can A Small Leak In A Pipe Wait?

Small leaks may not seem like much. However, leaks get worse with time, so the repair job will be easier for us and more economical for you the sooner you act.

Excess moisture in your home can lead to mold and dampness in the surrounding area, which is bad for your health. The air quality in your home is best when moisture is controlled, and the moisture that does make it into the air is sanitary.

Mold can also drastically reduce property value if you’re thinking of selling.

The Water Pressure Got Really Weak Recently. Will Pipe Maintenance Help?

Low water pressure can be due to a number of factors, from the street to the pipes to the faucet.

If your pipes are old, getting good water pressure back may be a question of regular pipe maintenance, or replacing them with new pipes.

How Should You Prepare Pipes For Freezing Weather?

Don’t wait until a freezing cold night to plan for this.

Pipes can freeze, expand, and then crack in cold weather so it’s vital to prepare in advance. Our plumbers can advise on where we can place insulation over the pipes, as well as what you can do to keep your pipes warmer in the cold weather.

An easy method to keep kitchen and bathroom pipes warmer is simply to keep the cabinets housing them open. That way, the warm air from your home keeps them from freezing and cracking.
