Plumbing Tips for Renters In Baltimore, MD

If you are renting a house that has plumbing issues or you wish to take care of small plumbing problems yourself, there are some things you can do as a renter. If the home you are renting floods, or the plumbing problem is bigger than you can handle, it is a good idea to call your landlord.

These tips will help you keep the plumbing in good order and allow you fix small issues if they arise.

5 Can’t Miss Plumbing Tips for Renters

1.) Keep Your Garbage Disposal Clean

You can run ice through the disposal once or twice a month. This will help keep the blades working well and clear any gunk out. You should also avoid putting vegetables like celery and carrots down the disposal. If the disposal stops working, try the reset button first.

2.) Only Flush What Should Be Flushed

Some toilets and plumbing systems are just more susceptible to problems. Don't place anything except for toilet paper in your toilets system. If you have big trees surrounding the house, using root X once or twice a year can help prevent problems. If the toilet starts running, you can take the lid off and inspect the inside for any issues. It may be something you can spot straight away and then you can either fix it yourself or call your landlord.

3.) Keep Your Sink Clear of Debris

To keep sinks clear and prevent backing up, use a product like Drano or some straight white vinegar and baking soda every 2-3 months. This can help dissolve any build up and keep drains running quickly. Avoid putting moisturizer, grease, fat and shaving creams down the sink, as these tend to cause build up.

4.) Clean Your Dishwasher – Yes You Heard Right!

To keep the dishwasher in good clean working order be sure to rinse off dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Wipe out the dishwasher every few weeks disposing of any build-up. Use the right amount of liquid or just one tab in your dishwasher, this will prevent a soap overflow. If your dishwasher is leaking it is a good idea to call your landlord.

5.) Call Your Landlord When Smells Linger

If you have bad smells coming from the drains in your rental it could be due to a couple of things. If you have tried the above step of clearing the pipes and you still notice the smell, there could be a bigger problem with the plumbing. If this is the case you will need to contact your landlord.
