What Chemicals Really Do to Your Pipes

Monday, January 1st, 2024

We talk a lot on this blog about the detriments of using chemical drain cleaners when compared to old-fashioned drain cleaning services performed by a professional plumber. And we understand that our bias might show because, well, we are licensed master plumbers. Not everyone wants to get on the phone and set up a drain cleaning appointment when they could just purchase chemicals from the grocery store and hope they get lucky.

But even in the event that a drain cleaning chemical does get rid of your clogging problem, are you really better off? Just because you can’t see the problem doesn’t mean it’s not there.

The Powerful Effects of Crawlspace Encapsulation

Monday, May 8th, 2023

Crawlspaces–some homes have them, and others don’t. They’re a finicky part of a home’s design, because they’re basically the space in-between spaces. Your crawlspace is likely another word for your basement, that might not be the right height to walk in.

Crawlspaces, just like basements, can encounter water throughout the course of the year. And if yours has a dirt floor, that’s the perfect combination for mold and fungus. While essentially harmless to start with, these types of organic growths can quickly hold moisture in your crawlspace and eventually lead to the rotting of important structural elements in your home.

If you’ve got an air conditioner in your home, then you’ve got an air filter.
