Many homeowners are stressed out this time of year. Don’t add to that stress, here are some tips from your Orlando plumber that will help you. Maybe it will save you from calling a plumbing company over the holiday and save you some money.
- When cooking this holiday season try to prevent dumping oil or grease down your kitchen drain. This has the potential to cause clogs and backups in your kitchen sink. Even grease from pans or roasting trays should be dumped in the trash and not down the sink. The problem is that the grease and oil harden and get sticky causing a blockage in the line.
- If your kitchen sink is draining slow, pour boiling water down the drain. If the drain is not completely blocked this can melt the fat and in many cases clear the clog.
- Make sure you tell all of your house guests not to flush certain things down the toilet. Some of these things that should not be flushed consist of wipes, feminine products or any foreign objects other then toilet paper. None of these things should be flushed down the toilet.
- To make this less likely, make sure any bathrooms that are going to be used by house guests have a trash can. Having a place to dispose of waste will help and people will be less tempted on flushing objects down the toilet.
