Fall cleaning tips for your home includes a Ben Franklin plumber checking your water heater for leaks!

Fall is a busy season for plumbers all around the country. Calls for service to repair clogs, leaks, add plumbing fixtures and appliances often increase during the fall and winter months. Your toilets, sinks, drains and water heaters may be working harder to keep up with the added demands of the season. To keep things flowing smoothly in your home, consider these tips from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®:

  1. Learn where your main water valve is and how to turn it off in an emergency.

Even a small leak or break can cause dozens of gallons of water to be lost in minutes. This can be damaging and costly.

  1. Check for leaks inside and outside your home.

Now is a great time to fix leaks before the weather gets too cold. Replace old washing machine hoses, worn gaskets, washers and toilet flappers inside. On the outside, check hoses and spigots for leaks. Any signs of mold, discoloration or foul odors can indicate larger problems.

  1. Clean rain gutters.

Clean your gutters and downspouts by removing leaves and pine needles so melted snow and rain flows away from your home.
