In just a few more days the 2015 holiday season will kick off with Thanksgiving. As much as we would love for plumbing issues to take a vacation while we enjoy our holidays, they don’t usually maintain a Monday through Friday 9-5 schedule. Plumbing emergencies can occur at any time; day or night. The holidays can present a unique set of circumstances for the plumbing in your home. As such, it’s a good idea to have a trusted Orlando plumber to count on just in case your plumbing takes some time off on your time off. During the holidays, the extra food and having extra family and friends over can sometimes over load your plumbing system. The holidays always seem to bring in just a few extra calls about these common plumbing issues:
- Garbage Disposals: All of the extra cooking usually means there is a lot more for the typical disposal to handle during this time of year. If a disposal is overloaded the result is usually breakage. If this occurs you will most likely need to replace it.
- Clogged Kitchen: All of the things that are being put in the disposal have to go somewhere. Putting too much in a disposal at once can lead to clogged drains. Your plumber can alleviate this issue by snaking the drain.
- Clogged Sewer Lines: Extra family and friends means extra waste. Sometimes your guests are not mindful of the things they flush. This can cause the main line to back up. Unfortunately this issue usually causes raw sewage to back up into your tubs shows and toilets. While the problem is a nasty mess, your plumber can clear it up easily by snaking the lines.
Having plumbing problems on an average day can be very stressful, holiday plumbing woes are even more so. Make sure you have your plumber on speed dial so your holiday plumbing emergency can be taken care of as quickly as possible.
