Owning a home is a great thing, but with that comes great responsibility. Your home will need regular routine maintenance and repairs. If you do not keep your home up, it could lead to extremely costly repairs and extensive damage to your home.
One of the best ways to protect your home is to get a plumbing maintenance contract. A plumbing maintenance contract will help prevent issues with your plumbing, helping you to avoid costly repairs. Over time, your plumbing equipment may wear down. For example, you may have a pipe that is slowly leaking up under your house. This leaking pipe can cause an extreme amount of damage. Rotting floors, joists, and causing mold build-up. When you have a maintenance agreement, the plumber will look for these issues. Having proper routine maintenance can help to extend the life of your plumbing equipment. Equipment like your hot water heater, sump pump, and faucets can all be serviced during this yearly service agreement.
What is Included in A Plumbing Maintenance Agreement?
During your yearly plumbing maintenance check, the following will be addressed:
Inspect toilets for leaks.
Inspect shower faucets and sink faucets for leaks.
Inspect cabinets for leaks.
Check for any clogs in the shower/bathtub and toilet.
Ensure that the toilet is functioning properly.

Inspect the faucets for any issue and proper water pressure.

What Happens Next?
After the above steps are complete, the plumber will also inspect the rest of the house plumbing for leaks as well as inspect any gas lines to the home. He or she will then flush the hot water heater as it builds up with sediment. They will also check out the hot water heater thoroughly to ensure that there are no issues with functionality.
