Central Pennsylvania Spring Plumbing Checklist

Ready to get started? Here’s the top six home maintenance tasks our home comfort professionals at Eshenaurs recommend adding to your spring-cleaning checklist this year:

1. Check for leaks

Make sure your home is leak-free. Inspect the areas underneath sinks, behind toilets, and in basements for any signs of leakage. Be sure to head outside to double-check that you don’t have any leaking spigots or faucets. When compounded, small leaks can cause big problems. It’s best to get them taken care of right away by a reputable plumber, like Eshenaurs. Eshenaurs is the top choice for professional plumbing services here in Pennsylvania. Small leaks are often simple for our plumbers to fix, preventing them from becoming more severe and costly.

2. Clear out your gutters

Gutters easily fill with leaves, debris, ice, and other blockages. It’s important to clean them or have them cleaned out in the spring to prevent water backup on your roof. Excess water on your roof can lead to leaks, water damage, and other issues that are easily preventable with a simple gutter cleaning.

3. Replace your air filters

A quick, simple, and affordable way to upgrade your home’s indoor air quality is to replace your home’s air filters every 90 days. Dirt, dust, and allergens get caught in your filter so tackling this replacement while you’re checking off your spring-cleaning to-do list is essential!

4. Clean faucets and fixtures

Sink and shower faucets can collect sedimentary buildup of the chemicals that are in our water. Cleaning them means that the buildup won’t eat away at the metal, come off on your skin, or make dishwashing less effective. Scrub off the buildup and consider a replacement if the buildup is too stubborn.

5. Schedule annual maintenance

Furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, and appliances like water pumps and water heaters all need annual maintenance. You can increase efficiency, use less oil, and reduce the risk of a future breakdown by scheduling a yearly tune-up for your home comfort equipment with our Eshenaurs professionals today.
