Nothing disrupts the comfort and functionality of a home quite like a plumbing emergency. From a clogged sink to a burst pipe, such incidents can lead to inconvenience, stress and costly repairs. Fortunately, with simple precautions and routine care, you can prevent many of these situations. At ASAP Plumbing, we're here to guide you through preventative measures that can keep your plumbing system in top shape.
1. Be Aware of What Goes Down the Drain:First and foremost, treat your drains with care. Never dispose of grease, coffee grounds, or non-biodegradable items down your drains as they can cause significant clogs over time. In the bathroom, avoid flushing anything other than toilet paper to prevent sewer backups.
2. Regularly Check for Leaks:Regularly inspecting your faucets, showerheads and exposed pipes for leaks is a simple yet effective precaution. Even a minor leak can escalate into a serious issue if left unattended. If you notice any dripping or wet spots, get it fixed immediately.
3. Insulate Your Pipes:Insulating your pipes can prevent them from freezing and bursting during the colder months. Burst pipes can lead to water damage and expensive repairs. Pipe insulation is a relatively inexpensive and straightforward task that can save you a lot of trouble.
4. Use Strainers:Place strainers in your kitchen and bathroom drains to catch hair, soap pieces, food particles and other debris from going down the drain and causing a clog.
5. Regular Professional Check-ups:Routine professional maintenance is crucial in keeping your plumbing system in excellent condition. A professional plumber can spot potential issues that you might overlook and provide solutions before they become major problems.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
As a property manager I have used ASAP Plumbing for the last 3yrs to service our 300+ rental properties throughout the Charleston area. They are always very quick to respond and they address all of our work orders in a timely manner. They represent the rental company very well while they are on site communicating our the tenants. I greatly appreciate the working relationship we have with the team at ASAP Plumbing and recommend them for any of your plumbing needs, both big and small.
