Regular plumbing service Mississauga and check ups are very much an important part of any home maintenance and upkeep.

Sure there are some people who claim they can do it all themselves when it comes to plumbing issues and there is no denying that DIY and tight budgets are the in-thing these days. There are a number of websites even offer demonstrations on how to fix things, such as YouTube, but one thing that cannot be denied is that an article or a step by step video cannot duplicate the same, real on-site work performed by professional, certified, licensed plumbers. When it comes to larger plumbing problems, it is a good choice to let a licensed professional handle it.


A good plumbing system (built properly) is essential to any home, and professional plumbing companies know this first hand from on the job experience. This is the reason why plumbers are always concerned when it comes to the quality of work, because mistakes in the roughin stage may lead to plumbing issues further down the road and or incur extra cost to repair. Licensed plumbers are far less likely to make mistakes as compared to a person who is not licensed to perform plumbing duties. Some of the things that expert plumbers can help you with, and why plumbing maintenance and service is important, are the following:

- Pipe repairs and installations of new water supply lines: When your house is being built for the first time, plumbers are part of the engineering and architectural team and usually on-site for the entire building process, from start to finish. Plumbers do jobs according to the plumbing code or the standards in the industry, and they are able to do this usually with minimal damage to the existing surroundings. Installing fixtures and faucets are common jobs for licensed plumbers, but you can rely on them for bigger projects like plumbing a custom home, a bathroom renovation or a kitchen remodelling. A good sign with copper piping that it may need to be replaced is when connecting joints turn a green colour. Copper joints being green is often oxidization from acid flux paste not being cleaned off the pipe after it was soldered. Over time the acid flux will eat through the copper pipe and may eventually rupture or produce a pin hole leak.

- Faucet maintenance and repairs. One of the most common problems we as certified plumbers come across is leaky faucets or seized faucets. Many times faucets just need replacing the cartridge or seals. Having a licensed plumber service your homes faucet once every 6 months to a year can help save money on costly repairs or faucet replacements in the future. A car requires new clean oil every 5,000 kms and faucets are no different, they are mechanisms that do require maintenance to be able to operate at peak performance, as intended.

- Drain cleaning and sewer cleaning. Sure, there are simple drain clogs that are easy to fix, but when it involves bigger sized drains or fully blocked drains, then licensed plumbing experts are the ones to call. Some local plumbing companies use a combination of technology and drain products that will do minimal damage to piping and help keep the drain clearer and blockage free, longer. One of the most common blocked drains is the kitchen sink drain. Over time, food and grease builds up in the pipe and eventually completely blocks. Horizontal piping is more susceptible than vertical piping. It is good practice and maintenance to have a licensed plumbing company snake your kitchen sink drain pipe once every year or two. 

- Shut off valve replacement and service. Often times, many shut off valves that are located within a home (such as the main cold water shut off, bathroom sink shut off valves) are rarely ever turned or maintenanced. After long periods of time without movement, shut off valves can become very hard to turn, seize completely, or have faulty seals and gaskets begin to leak. Make sure you shut off valves are working properly and moving freely. Any valves that are dripping, leaking, hard to turn or seized require a licensed plumber to diagnose the leak and find the best solution whether to repair the shut off valve or replace the shut off valve.

- Sump pump installations. Even a minute or two amount of water leaks in basements of homes can cause a lot of damage. Water accumulates and does further damage to the foundation of the house, and inside the basement itself. Sump pumps are the ready defences to help prevent basement flooding. Expert plumbing services are the only ones who are properly trained and certified to handle such installations, as they know the plumbing codes and nature of basement flooding. If you have a damp basement, you may need a sump pump installed.  

In summary, it is wiser to hire professional licensed services for anything related to plumbing in your house or place of business. It may sound more expensive at first, but it is the long term solution you are looking at and ensuring plumbing tasks are performed by licensed plumbers.
