Spring Cleaning Tips from Derksen Plumbing & Heating


Are you finding that water does not drain as quickly as it once did? Finding this occurring in your sink and shower drains then Winnipeg homeowners it’s time to take action.

By overhauling your entire drainage system, there are significant future savings to be made. With the proper equipment, a plumber can clean out the drains, ensure they are working correctly, and are free from damage.

Replacing damaged or substandard pipes will also keep your drains free flowing and help prevent further breakages. The natural enemies of our sewer pipes are tree roots. They will break pipes. They cause blockages and access points. Often the blockages lead to your drains backing up.

The amount of work needed to repair broken sewage pipes, not to mention cleaning up the mess made in your home, will put untold strain on both your bank account and sanity. By preventing damage from occurring, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your drains and budget are safe.

Some quick proactive tips are applying grease and root destroyer, at least twice a year, to ensure roots never play havoc with your sewer pipes again. What’s more, the chemical does not harm the actual tree; it only stunts the growth of the roots.

In general, it is advisable to keep a close eye on all aspects of your drainage system. A little maintenance now will save a lot of stress later. Don’t leave cleaning until it is too late.

Call us today for more information about preventative maintenance. (204) 944-3444.

Ready Your Furnace

While Jack Frost isn’t quite nipping at your nose, the early warning signs of winter are starting to hit Winnipeg.

We’re not going to focus on what has been happening in the River City over the past few months, which has seen us had too few days in the 30s and more rain than we’d like to have fallen to a freefalling thermometer that is threatening frost already.

The effect of this sudden turn, of course, is that you’re turning your thermostat up a little sooner than expected, translating into a new concern about the health of your furnace.

If you’re concerned about your furnace’s status, then it’s definitely time to give us a call.

Derksen’s team is ready to mobilize for you. Preventative maintenance, including annual checks on your furnace, will help ensure you stay toasty warm throughout the cold months.
