Top Things to Do to Get Your Long Island Home Ready for Summer
Check for Any Leaks:
Be sure to search for leaks around your home. While big leaks may be easy to spot, don’t forget to keep an eye out for small ones as well. The additional water waste can really add up on your family’s monthly water bill, and the leaks can cause damage to your home’s kitchen and bathroom installations. If you find any leaks, be sure to give Hardy Plumbing & Heating a call.

Flush the Water Heater:
Your water heater can build up sediment internally which can cause corrosion and impede its water heating capability. A plumber can drain and flush your water heater, cleaning out all the sediment and vastly improving your water heater’s efficiency.
Clean and Treat Pipes:
You don’t want to deal with clogs backing up your drains, so the best thing to do when opening your home is to treat all your drains and pipes with a drain cleaner that will remove any clogs that may be there.
