  • New Home, New Plumbing!

     3 Reasons You Should Hire Professionals to Install Your Plumbing

    If you are moving into a new home and need plumbing, then leave it to the professionals.  While some projects can be DIY , laying down the pipes that get the hot water to the kitchen and showers, the waste to the sewage, and your outdoor water running is a professional plumbing job.  Here are three reasons why you should definitely hire professionals to install your plumbing .

    1. House plumbing is a lot of work.  Think of every room where water is running to and from.  Even in the smallest houses you have at least a kitchen and bathroom, and all houses have a water heater.  Larger houses have multiple bathrooms and a laundry room to contend with.  Letting a certified plumber tackle your household plumbing ensures that everything will be ably done.
    2. You will have someone you can refer to for later problems.  If you hire professionals to install your plumbing, then if problems develop down the line, you know who to go to with your questions and concerns.  Even with a good plumbing job, significant problems can occur with general wear and tear and having used plumbers for the installation gives you someone trustworthy that you can turn to.
    3. A certified plumber has the expertise and materials on hand to handle every eventuality.  If any problem occurs, a plumber has the tools on hand to handle it.

  • Circle the Drain: Why It’s Important to Have Them Cleaned Regularly

    Clogged drains are no fun.  They can be a problem to deal with and can throw off the whole balance of your house.  Want to avoid drain problems?  Get them cleaned regularly.  Here are the benefits of having regular plumbing check-ups and drain cleaning.

    Our drains take a lot of abuse.  Much of the time, the common philosophy with our waste is out of sight, out of mind.  If food scraps, grease, potato peels, hair, and waste can disappear into our pipes, then the problem seems to no longer be ours.  It goes elsewhere.  However, a lot of the stuff that we insist on dumping into our plumbing can cause blockages.  While problems can be minor at first, without regular cleaning you can face big problems. 

    • Burst pipes and back-logged sewer systems are no fun, and can be easily avoided if you make sure you have regular, professional drain cleaning. 
    • It might be surprising, but the excess grease and oil from your dinner actually creates huge problems down the pipe because it can easily create blockage.  Other foods, like potato peels and coffee grounds are key culprits.  Products like paper towels, tampons, and sanitary napkins can also create blockage.

    When you get your drains cleaned regularly, you can ensure that problems are tackled before they become major.  However, if you let clogs build up, you can face overflow and dealing with a large mess on your hands.  And if you are too exuberant with some clogs, you can ruin your pipes.  Instead, for major clogs, rely on plumbers who can save your plumbing from destruction. 

    Are you looking for the plumbing professionals that can keep your drains spick and span?  Come visit us at Albert Naham Plumbing and Heating or call (510) 843-6904.
