You’ve probably heard the saying “the kitchen is the heart of the home” before, and we’ve always found it to be true. It’s where the family gathers, where meals and memories are made, and where you go for comfort. Much like our own heart, it’s important to keep it healthy and functional for the good of the entire home. There’s a lot of plumbing in a kitchen — sinks, dishwashers, garbage disposals, pot filler faucets, even refrigerators. That also means there’s a lot of potential for trouble, and in order to make sure your home has a healthy heart, you’ll want to invest in kitchen plumbing repair and maintenance.
Think of it like visits to the doctors. You go when you get sick and you also go for routine preventive care because you know that catching things early is better for both your body and your wallet. Every once in a while, illness is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your health otherwise. The same holds true for your kitchen! Good plumbing means everything works smoothly and lets you keep the household running.
Out of all the spaces in your home, the kitchen is probably the most likely to experience plumbing issues, purely because there’s so much of it in the space. The only other room that can compete is the bathroom, and even then the issues aren’t quite the same. You can use another sink to wash your hands or brush your teeth, but doing dishes outside the kitchen? That’s not good for anyone. Whether it’s a backed up garbage disposal or a malfunctioning dishwasher, kitchen plumbing issues can really throw a wrench into your night’s plans — or your week’s plans, if it’s a big enough problem.
Prevention is simple, in this case. Keep all of your faucets, appliances, and kitchen tools clean and check them regularly for problems. Change the water filters for your drinking water regularly, whether it comes from your sink or your fridge. If you’re noticing anything unusual, like dirty ice or strange noises from appliances, get them seen sooner rather than later. Catching a small problem now will save you from big hassles later. It might be inconvenient in the moment, but it’s a whole lot better than a broken appliance.
Repair isn’t the only thing that happens with kitchen plumbing. At some point, you may need or want to replace an appliance. The removal and installation comes with its own set of challenges, especially when hookups are installed. One wrong move and you could be dealing with a whole lot of displaced water on your new flooring! It’s always a good idea to opt for professional installation, just to be on the safe side.
