You might think that a plumbing inspection is an extra service you don’t really need, but it is essential for proper maintenance. If you wanted to, you could call a plumber only when you have a plumbing emergency, but that’s not a wise strategy.

When Should You Schedule a Plumbing Inspection?

The truth is that not all plumbing issues are immediately visible, but they can still cause damage to your commercial or residential property. So, it’s best to tackle any problems early on before they become severe and disrupt your daily life or business operations. Investing in a plumbing inspection service is one of the best preventative measures you can take to protect your home or business. You’ll even save money. The question is this: When should you schedule a plumbing inspection service?

  • When You Have a New Building or Home – If your home or commercial building is new, you should schedule a plumbing inspection. Your experienced plumbing contractor will be able to tell if your plumbing system was installed correctly, so you can avoid any issues and start off on the right foot in your new home or building.
  • When You Have an Old Building or Home If your home or commercial building is a few decades old, your plumbing system is more prone to having issues. You should schedule regular plumbing inspections. For homeowners, having an inspection once every two years should suffice. Businesses need more frequent inspections because commercial buildings have more complex plumbing and greater usage. Many experts recommend quarterly inspections for commercial buildings.
  • When You Suspect Problems If you notice mold, water damage, or that your water bill has increased, that could be a sign that there’s a leak somewhere in your plumbing. Or, if you notice slow drainage, your pipes may be clogged. A simple plumbing inspection will confirm or deny your suspicions, so that you won’t need to worry. At East Atlantic Plumbing LLC, we can even perform camera inspections for a noninvasive look at your plumbing.
