Homeowners must keep their property in great shape throughout the years.  It is vital to enlist the help of professionals that can help! SERVPRO of Southern and Central Jefferson County has provided homeowners with a "To-Do List" of household items that need to be checked for your home's health. 

Once a year:

  • Enlist the help of a plumber or handyman to drain and check your water heater.  This can help diagnose problems.
  • Replace your RO (Reverse Osmosis) filter.  It is best to have a plumber or RO technician to help you with this process.

Twice a year:

  • Clean your faucet aerator/screens.  A handyman can do this, or you can do it yourself.
  • Service HVAC system.  An HVAC company is the best choice for this service.

Four times a year:

  • Replace filters.  A handyman or yourself can do this.  A pro-tip will be to put the size of your filters in the notes section of your cell phone if you have one.  Then, set calendar alerts. 

Every two years:

  • Service your water softener.  A water softener technician or plumber can help.

Every five years:

  • Replace water supply lines with the help of a plumber
  • Replace the RO (Reverse Osmosis) flex tubes


Every ten years:

  • Replace your water heater. 
    Replace p-traps which are located under sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms.  This can help prevent water leaks or significant floods. 
  • Replace angle stop or simply stop valves.  These control the supply of water to the individual fixtures
  • Replace the toilet wax ring
    Your local plumber can help with all of these fixes.


At SERVPRO of Southern and Central Jefferson County we want you to keep your home safe and free of any destructive happenings.  However, if you find that you are in a water, fire, or mold situation, give us a call 24/7, we are here to help with any of these emergencies.  Call us today 636-467-5444.
