The holiday season is finally here. If you plan to celebrate at home with your family and friends, Cole Plumbing advises you to prepare your plumbing for the extra workload. Here are a few valuable tips.
Put Wastebaskets In Your Bathrooms
Every holiday season, plumbing services are called to handle messy toilet backups. This problem often stems from people flushing trash down the toilet, which ultimately causes a clog. Among the items you shouldn’t flush include diapers, baby wipes, personal hygiene products, and cotton balls. To help deter your guests from treating your toilet as a trash can, be sure to put wastebaskets in every bathroom.
Ensuring that foreign items like toilet paper don’t make their way down your drains is a good way to avoid calling for emergency plumbing.
Get Your Shower Ready
No overnight guest wants to be subjected to a cold shower. To ensure that everyone is able to take a hot shower, ask a reputable plumbing company to service your water heater. It’s also a good idea to install hair catchers over your bathroom drains.
Have Your Drains Professionally Cleaned
Now is a good time to have your drains professionally cleaned by a plumber in Elmore, AL. If it’s been a while since your drains were last cleaned, there’s probably a lot of gunk inside the pipes. This means it's only a matter of time before a clog develops. Never use liquid drain cleaners. Although these products may seem convenient, they can seriously damage your plumbing system.
