The experts at Las Vegas plumbing are there to help the real estate investor or the first time home buyer. Las Vegas like many areas have been hit by the home foreclosure crisis. Many homes are up for sale by banks that have taken back properties from the original borrowers. Real estate investors and first time home buyers have the same challenge; having to rehab the foreclosed property after buying it.
Houses that come through foreclosure usually need rehab because the people who were living it during the foreclosure process allowed the house to fall into disrepair. Since they had to leave they did not take care of the house. In fact some people on purpose damage the house before they vacate. You will want to first repair the plumbing on these houses because you do not want any major water damage to happen.
You can call the plumber for any problem big or small or you can try to take care of the problems you think you can handle. If the kitchen sink is clogged up here are some tips for you if you think you can repair it.
Buy from any hardware store a sink snake. Pull out the snake and enter the drain with the end. Pull it up and down and you will take out the material that is causing the clog. Be aware that the smell as you pull the snake back up can be pretty bad. Wear gloves so that you do not get the gunk on your hands. Have a lot of towels available to keep the area clean. Then throw away the towels.
The snake end has little prongs on it that you can reach anything that is in the drain. The prong will grab anything that is clogging your sink. When the clog is removed carefully turn the wheel on the snake and it will roll back into the container.
For clogs that are farther down the pipe you will probably need a professional plumber with an electric snake that can power itself down to the clog. You can call a Las Vegas plumbing expert for this bigger job. He will enter the pipe through the outlet pipe with his professional snaking equipment.
This the job the professional is trained in. Water pipes, water heaters, water control valves; this is the time to call the Las Vegas plumbing professionals to help get your rehab property ready for resale or ready for you to move into.
