Rain is a wonderful thing and brings new life to the earth, but too much of anything can be a bad thing. At Synergy Plumbing Services, our plumbers in Loughborough, Shepshed and surrounding areas understand that increased levels of rain and snow this season can be hazardous to your home or business.
Here are a few ways to help protect your home from the elements:
Clear and Covered Drains
A blocked drain system is a hassle to deal with and increased rainfall or snow can fill your drains with debris that can clog them completely. Depending on the severity of the clog, water and waste can back up into your home or outdoor spaces. Clearing out the debris can be easy for small blocks, but if there is a substantial clog or debris has reached the interior of the drain, it is time to call in a professional team such as Synergy. Maintain covers and screen systems over all drains to help alleviate the threat of a blockage.
Keep Leaves Out of Drains
Leaves are beautiful to look at, but as they begin to fall, they present a potential drainage problem. Rain water and thawing snow will cause those beautiful but troublesome leaves to travel down into the drain. They stack up, restricting water from moving through the drain pipes. To keep your drains from getting constricted by leaves, regularly rake any leaves into piles and dispose of them properly. This time of year, all the trees have shed their leaves and it is the perfect time to get outside and clear the outdoor space. For assistance with drain clearing, you may need professional help. In such cases, we are just a phone call away.
Cleaning highly positioned gutters can be a difficult and dangerous task. However, clean gutters ensure that excess rainwater has somewhere to go. Neglected those over full gutters can cause water to accumulate beneath the roof and back up into the structure of the home, so always have a professional such as Synergy come out and clean your gutters regularly… especially during the rainy season.
Never Do it Yourself
A “Do It Yourself attitude” is instilled in many of us, and is a great outlook for some manageable projects around the home, but your drainage and plumbing systems are not a safe DIY project. Let Synergy Plumbing Services take the burden off and get your drain systems and plumbing components working as they should. Our professional plumbers in Loughborough, Shepshed, Hathern, and the East Midlands have the expertise and equipment to handle any plumbing or drainage issue that you may be experiencing.
