Welcome! Here are the website rules, as well as some tips for using this forum.
Inherited a house with steam pipes.. aka I bought the house, lol. Didn't realized it was so bad at night, so I do have some plans but not sure what they are. I was thinking of taking each one out to clean, its really dirty around the are, need some vacuuming and it was previously painted by old owner.
So does it make sense to take them out to clean ? Do I need to check for anything specific ? ie rust use some kinda of cleaning conditioner ? I never work with these before but willing to learn and figure out the pipe banging issue. Also does not look like there is any pitch.. so I think that might be one issue. Ill post some pics a bit later.
