It is a well-known fact that preventative maintenance is the best way to care for your home, car, lawn mower, and any other things we want to last a long time. The ability to make small repairs proactively is far better than big expensive repairs reactively. The question is how do you know if you need a repair? How do you know if expensive deterioration and damage is beginning to develop? What is the best way to learn about issues and what areas of concern are most pressing?
The short answer is an inspection of the system. This is the best and most cost-effective way to stay on top of the status of your vent. If you are not made aware of the issue during an inspection, you will usually become aware when the system fails or malfunctions. Whether you have a pre-buying inspection on a home or notice the leak under your sink, becoming aware of issues is your first line of defense.
