Improve your property value – take care of the Plumbing

December 7th, 2009

We at IQ Plumbing Services have emergency plumbers in London’s most densely populated areas. The houses are often quite old, with plumbing and drainage that wasn’t designed to sustain today’s heavy usage.  It is important that London property owners maintain their plumbing systems so that plumbing disasters, such as blocked drains and leaking pipes, are avoided as much as possible.

However, as plumbing emergencies occur on a regular basis, our emergency drainage company is always kept busy.

The average home plumbing system represents approximately 15% of the total value of the property. When it comes to selling, your buyer will be looking carefully for plumbing mishaps, such as corroded pipes and neglected drainage outlets, when deciding whether or not your property is worth investing in. A badly maintained plumbing system could see the value of your property plummet. If you have slow waste flow, for example, the argument will be that it could be caused by a collapsed drain, and thus the new owner would need to call an emergency drainage company. The estimated cost of this would be deducted from any offer.

But even if you’re not aiming to move, there is no excuse for complacency. Our plumbing systems keep us warm in winter. We use gallons of water every day, from  taking showers to washing our dishes and clothes. A well maintained, fully-functioning plumbing system is essential to our health and well being, yet we conveniently forget that it needs regular maintenance and doesn’t take kindly to being mistreated.

With this in mind, it is no wonder that reliable emergency plumbers in London, such as those at IQ Plumbing Services, are called out so often.
