As a result of busy lives and lack of money, many of the systems inside people’s homes are often forgotten about – until they’re needed.

HVAC, electrical systems and home plumbing are likely to be neglected, but there are a number of very good reasons why this could be a huge mistake:

Prevention is better than Cure

Experts recommend that just as a HVAC and electrical system should be checked once a year to ensure that all parts are working correctly and efficiently, as should a plumbing system. The reason for this is that preventing a problem or highlighting it before it becomes problematic is much more effective than trying to solve a problem

An emergency plumbing issue could be both complex and expensive – not to mention that most plumbing emergencies tend to occur just as the homeowner needs to rely on their plumbing such as during a cold winter.


In addition, many insurance companies are unlikely to pay out on claims for problems which were ignored or systems which haven’t been regularly checked or treated.

What to check

As part of the plumbing check up, a company such as Aramendia Houston should carry out a thorough inspection of all water using appliances and outlets, including sinks, tubs, showers, faucets, heaters, boilers, washing machines and any outdoor outlets such as pools, hot tubs and sprinklers.

They should inspect all carefully to check for leaks, bulges, blockages and fixtures to ensure that all are working properly, effectively and don’t have any problems either existing or just beginning.
