Pipe Maintenance, Hickory, NC
Having a professional routinely perform pipe maintenance in your Hickory home will reduce pipe problems related to clogging, leaking, flooding, and bursting.
Pipes are responsible for bringing in clean water and disposing of dirty water. With how much water you use throughout your home, pipes are interwoven throughout most of your rooms. Water is moved in and out of so many different rooms, including bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and mud rooms. In addition, pipes are used wherever there are outdoor faucets and in connection with hot water heaters. The average home in the United States uses 400 gallons of water per day. That is a lot of work and strain on your pipes, which is why pipe maintenance is so important.
Pipe maintenance includes the following:
- Regular deep cleaning with specific cleaning solutions
- Inserting a tool to break up solid waste or debris
- Properly removing solid waste or debris
- Scouring the insides of pipes
- Using specific solutions to reduce odors from dirty pipes

Broken pipes can cause excessive moisture in your home, increasing the risk of mold and mildew growth. Water can also cause wood to rot and warp and can be damaging to any furniture or other materials in your home. Pipes carrying sewage are also sealed to contain odors. If they become cracked or broken, there can be unpleasant odors and sewage leaking. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing – Morganton, we recommend regularly having your pipes cleaned to keep them in prime condition and avoid more expensive repairs.
