Has your home or business suffered some plumbing problems as a result of storm damage? Melbourne gets hit by storms several times a year. While many of the storms don’t really cause damage, others leave catastrophic damages behind, especially in terms of plumbing.
Depending on the strength of the storm, plumbing damages range from simple blockages to severe damages. Some storms will only cause leaking or blockages to your drains, pipes and gutters. Others will totally damage the pipes and gutters that all you can do is to replace them. But while storms cannot be prevented, people can at least protect their plumbing systems from its effect.
Protecting Your Plumbing
Having a preventive strategy before a storm hits can help you avoid costly repairs. Getting advice from a professional plumbers about what you can do to protect your plumbing is the best course of action you can take.
The first action you need to take is to check your outdoor drains for debris. Make sure there’s nothing blocking the drains. A blocked drain is not capable of handling the sudden rush of water and gunk during heavy rains and floods. Get a professional plumber to do the inspection for you.
You should also have your gutters checked for leaves, tree branches, plastics, etc. Make sure that water will freely flow through these gutters. If your gutters have blockages and a heavy rain passes, there is a potential for some of that water to leak through your ceilings and walls.
Storm Damage Inspection
After a storm has passed, it is best to have your home and office’s plumbing checked by a professional plumbing technician. This is to ensure that there’s no damage to your plumbing system. And if there are, you can have it repaired. This way, the issue can be solved before it gets even more problematic. Always remember that complicated problems like burst pipes often begin with a simple corrosion, clog or leak.
