Benefits of upgrading your plumbing for laundry room renovation

  1. A New Laundry Layout

Having the right laundry layout can facilitate your laundry operations. A new laundry layout makes doing laundry chores easy. However, while changing the layout, a lot of plumbing work will be involved.

When you change the position of the washing machine, you’ll need to rework the plumbing pipes to drain the water from the machine; this process can be stressful but is sure to facilitate your laundry operations. The same applies to other laundry equipment in the laundry room.

  1. A new laundry sink

Have you thought about how the size of the sink in your laundry room can affect your laundry operations? Before choosing a sink for your laundry, you must consider its capacity. Unlike the sinks used in bathrooms, laundry sinks are for hard work and require volume and depth.

Installing a new sink requires the service of a professional plumber. A plumber can help you determine the size and shape of the sink needed in your laundry room. They can also determine whether your cabinet is big enough to hold the new sink. If you’re attempting a renovation in your laundry room, skipping a plumbing upgrade is not an option.

  1. Floor drains

Flooding is a common laundry plumbing emergency and can be resolved during a laundry room renovation. The solution for flooding in the laundry is the installation of floor drains. Not all laundry rooms are built with floor drains but installing them can reduce your worries of a flooded laundry room. By draining out floods as they happen, you reduce structural damage and water damage in your laundry areas.

When installing a new drain, be sure to hire the service of a reliable plumber who can check if your floor drains are operating as they should be.

  1. New pipes

Your pipes are an essential part of your entire plumbing system and not just your laundry. Renovating your laundry room is an opportunity to change old and worned out pipes which ensures that your pipes are healthy. So, if your pipes are old, rusty or worn out, the right time to change them is during the laundry room renovation.
