There are a lot of plumbing companies in Arlington, but how do you know which one you can trust? There isn’t much time to spare when a plumbing emergency strikes, so it’s important that you identify quality plumbers in your area before you need them. For starters, speak with your friends, family, and neighbors and ask for recommendations. Even if they can’t point you in the direction of a good plumber, they will probably be able to tell you which plumbers to avoid. Once you’ve narrowed down your list, call each plumbing company and get an idea of how much they charge for basic and emergency plumbing services. Also make sure that the plumbing company is insured.

Even well-designed and maintained plumbing systems give homeowners trouble from time to time. To better understand the importance of attending to plumbing problems before they become too costly to repair, watch this ABC news segment.
The subject of this video is a Detroit-area home with a main sewer line problem that causes sewage to back up into the home’s various pipes and drains. This problem is reparable, but would have been much easier and less expensive to repair if it had been detected earlier.
If pooling water, the smell of raw sewage, or strange sounds make you think there is a problem with your home’s plumbing infrastructure, do not hesitate to call the plumber.

When it rains during the rainy season, it pours. And when it pours, your Northern Virginia home’s basement is far more likely to flood than normal. To keep water from flooding your basement and to avoid the hassles associated with water damage, follow these simple plumbing and home maintenance steps.
style="font-size: 11px;">Inspect Foundation Wall
One way that water finds its way into a home is through cracks in the foundation. Water can also find entry through the saturation of soil that has accumulated over a home’s siding. Closely inspect your home’s foundation, brushing away any soil that is clinging to your lower walls and seal any cracks and gaps you find.
style="font-size: 11px;">Clean Gutters
One of the most effective ways to keep rainwater out of your home is to stay on top of a gutter cleaning and maintenance routine. Thoroughly clean your gutters so that water can quickly pass through them, extending or redirecting downspouts if they are within 10 feet of your home’s foundation.
style="font-size: 11px;">Cover Window Wells
If you have basement windows or other below-grade windows on your property, clean them of debris and cover them with clear, plastic covers. This will prevent water from penetrating your basement through gaps in window seals without blocking natural light.
style="font-size: 11px;">Test Sump Pump
Check your sump pump’s discharge pipe to make sure it’s extended far enough away from your home, and test your sump pump to ensure that it’s still in good working order. If it isn’t, discuss with your plumber whether it should be repaired or replaced. If your Northern Virginia home has a basement but no sump pump, contact a local plumbing professional to have an automatic sump pump installed in your home.
Keeping water out of your home’s basement is simple if you install an automatic sump pump. To employ the help of an experienced basement waterproofing and sump pump installation professional in Arlington, contact All Plumbing, Inc. at (571) 482-7046.
