Check Your Faucets

Your faucets play a pivotal role in the daily running of your home, so in order to ensure they are working effectively, conduct a thorough check. Check inside and outside to make sure everything functions properly. This can be done by turning on the hot and cold lines one at a time and listening to any apparent noises.

Conceal Exposed Pipes

If you’ve experienced a relatively cold and snowy winter, cracked pipes can become exposed which can cause problems during the summer months. Ensure any exposed or damaged pipes are repaired and concealed.
