Simple Tips to Avoid Water Damage
Be careful with planting trees
Planting trees may not be that popular in the desert but if you are looking to add some shade to help your home cool down in those summer months, Be careful of trees with invasive roots. Trees with invasive roots can cause problems with irrigation problems, pipes and even septic tanks.
Keep an eye on your water bill
It is always a good idea to monitor your water bill regularly. That can be the best indication of a leak that you might not know about.
Chemicals may not be the best thing when unclogging your sink
Clogs happen. Everyone experiences them and those unclogging chemicals are extremely handy but they can eat away at pipes causing future problems. If you can avoid those chemicals and try using a drain snake instead.
Never pour grease down your sink
Grease can be harmful to pipes if it hardens inside the trap and cause back ups. Even if you think diluting grease with water would help, it doesn't. The best thing for grease is to put it in a disposable container and let it harden before you throw it away.
