3 Tips for Irrigation System Maintenance on Your Building

Is it time for irrigation maintenance on your property in Lacey, WA? While maintaining your system sometimes feels like a hassle, there are a few simple tips that keep the work simple and efficient.

1. Frequent Inspections
Sprinklers are another one of those elements in life that need to be checked on frequently. While your to-do list is certainly already full, finding time to inspect your system often and early saves you time and money later. While inspecting, make sure the heads of your sprinklers are undamaged and completely upright on the lawn. Sometimes, people, lawn care equipment, and pets accidentally dislodge the heads. If one is dislodged, simply gently move it back to an upright position.

2. Check the Weather Report
As the coming seasons bring new weather challenges, it's best to adjust your system as the conditions change. Both temperature and the amount of rainfall affect your system. Performing irrigation maintenance at the right times ensures that your landscape receives the perfect amount of water. Most controllers have a seasonal adjustment feature that increases or reduces water flow or operation time across all areas of the system. This is based on a percentage of the time you program into the controller unit.

3. Have a Professional in Mind
Though they are rare as long as you stay on top of maintenance tasks, accidents do happen. As such, it's best to have a water damage cleanup and restoration specialist in mind in case of a sprinkler flooding. A valve or pipe break also spells disaster for your lawn and building. These pros use specialized equipment to remove moisture in a way that won't damage furniture or other amenities. Most experts also help you determine what building materials are salvageable and which ones need to be torn out.
With a licensed professional at your side and some helpful knowledge, irrigation maintenance is a simple task.
