Plumbing New Year’s Resolutions

It’s a whole new year, and we’re thrilled to be starting our 57th year in business as a Louisville and Lexington plumbing company. Our biggest goal will always be providing our customers with excellent service. When you set your 2015 New Year’s Resolutions, here are four suggestions which will make your life a little easier (and keep your plumbing working better this year.)

Resolve to stop using your drains as a garbage can. We know it’s tempting to try washing spoiled food and other smelly items down the sink. Just don’t do it. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to clogging your pipes.

Resolve to leave plumbing work to the professionals. We know there are all kinds of DIY videos on YouTube. They might help you be a more informed consumer, but don’t let them convince you that you are now an experienced, licensed plumber. Play it safe and bring in a pro when your plumbing breaks down.

Resolve to get things fixed as soon as you know there’s a problem. Letting a leak, drip or other plumbing issue continue will only cost you more in the long run. Water damage from plumbing leaks are usually more expensive to fix than the leak itself. Dauenhauer Plumbing performs night and weekend work at no extra charge, so there’s no reason to put off getting it fixed.

Resolve to be a smarter consumer. Do your research. When you need home services like plumbing in Lexington or Louisville, check out customer reviews. Ask your friends and neighbors who they’ve used. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion. Dauenhauer Plumbing provides free second opinions on estimates for plumbing work.

We hope 2015 is a great year for you, with no unexpected plumbing emergencies. But — that’s why they call it an “unexpected emergency.” When plumbing issues arise, call Dauenhauer, any hour. We’ll get it fixed, and get your life back to normal fast.
