How Plumbing Repairs Save You Money in Orlando

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Because there are so many types of plumbing repairs which could spring up unexpectedly, there are a number of variables which can affect the cost of fixing the problem.  However, one of the most important things to remember when dealing with a plumbing problem is to hire a licensed plumbing company in Orlando, such as Modern Plumbing Industries. Our skilled plumbers will perform your plumbing repairs in a professional manner and at a reasonable price point, and it is always less expensive when the problem is fixed the first time.

Save Money by Using Common Sense

Much of the time when plumbing problems occur small things over time have compounded to become one big issue which results in the need for plumbing repair.  By making certain that you are taking proper care of your pipes you can prevent plumbing issues altogether or at least keep your plumbing up and running until that next plumbing maintenance check.  Use drain screens to prevent everyday objects, jewelry, hair, and excesses of soaps and toothpaste from going down drain.  Pour hot water down drains to clear out the normal daily soap-scum buildup which occurs.

Save Money with Plumbing Maintenance

Ensuring proper plumbing maintenance is performed will mean fewer emergency plumbing repairs, which means less out of pocket to pay for them.  This includes having a professional plumber such as ours come in annually to perform a full plumbing maintenance inspection to identify and fix small problems that would have only grown and cost you more in plumbing repairs.

Save Money on Taxes

Some plumbing repairs will be tax-deductible at the end of the year especially if it affects how much your home is worth, such as replacing old pipes with copper pipes.  If you have a home office, plumbing repairs in that section should be tax deducted for business expenses.  And also if the plumbing repair is quite major and is energy-related for more energy-efficiency.

Plumbing Question: What Can Cause a Clogged Kitchen Sink Lines?

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Clogged kitchen sink lines are a problem many homeowners experience. It is important to understand the main causes of clogs in kitchen sink lines in order to avoid them in the future.  If you do have a kitchen sink clog it is important to work with a plumbing company in Orlando such as those at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc.  that can easily identify the clog and fix it quickly.

Causes of a Kitchen Sink Clog

  • Food in the Drain:  When food that is left on dishes slips into the drain, it can stick to the walls of the sink drain, and cause a kitchen sink clog.  Especially susceptible are starchy foods such as cereal and bread, as well as hard to grind foods such as potato peels.  The best preventive solution to this is to dispose of excess food on dishes in the compost or trash can, or to use a strainer over the sink while cooking.  Utilizing a garbage disposal can assist with some food clogs, but they are not intended for use on every single piece of unused food and should thus be used sparingly.
  • Grease:  Grease in its liquid form does flow through drains, generally when the grease is hot or warm.  However, when grease solidifies, it turns into a goopy mess that easily sticks to the walls of a drain.  Once other substances go down the drain they are more likely to stick as well and cause a clogged kitchen sink.  Grease should never be poured down a drain in its liquid form, nor sent down the drain in its solid form.  Instead place hot grease in a tin can to cool and solidify and then dispose of it in the trash can.
  • Foreign Objects:  With a busy household comes the added worry of foreign objects being accidently sent down the kitchen sink drain.  These can be anything from dropped jewelry, to small toys, silverware, or paper towels.  Any foreign objects in the sink drain can easily cause a kitchen sink clog to occur.  Pay attention to what you keep around your kitchen sink, as this will help to lessen the occurrence of such drain clogs.

Clogged Kitchen Sink Repair

When clogged kitchen sink lines do occur, it is essential to have them fix quickly with professional Orlando plumbing technicians who have years of education and hands-on experience handling every type of drain problem which accidently happens.  Contact your Orlando plumbers at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. today!
