How to Avoid a Holiday Plumbing Emergency

Holidays are the time to gather with family and friends and have a nice time. Of course, members of your household are probably working hard to meet your guests for the gathering and parties, but a lot of people also forget the other part of your household that works very hard to keep up with everything: the plumbing system. However, your plumbing system will remind itself when you are standing in the middle of the bathroom or kitchen trying to figure out why your drains are clogged. Naturally, preventing this from occurring is quite important. In this article, we will go over some of the ways you can avoid these plumbing emergencies during holidays.

Place Leftovers In The Trash Rather Than The Drain

We know that you will be busy and tired when there are so many people in your home. So, after dinner, you might be tempted to scrap the remaining parts of the food down your drain. However, there’s a list of what goes down the drain and what doesn’t. So, make sure to scrap the leftovers in a garbage bin.

Get A Professional Drain Cleaning Service

Your drains will work a lot during the holidays as more guests arrive. So, cleaning the drains before your guests arrive is a great idea. Get a professional drain cleaning service from the professionals of Texas Rooter. This way, you can relax knowing that your drains are ready to handle what will come.

Buy Extra Trash Bins

In addition to your kitchen drains, your toilets are a great risk too. Maybe the members of your own household are careful about what goes down the toilet, but there’s no way you can check all the toilets at all times when your guests are around. So, make sure to grab some extra trash cans and put them in various areas of your home, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Additionally, make sure to inform your guests about some of the items that must be completely avoided, such as sanitary towels, feminine hygiene products, cotton swabs and cotton balls, paper towels, baby wipes, etc.

Get A Drain Snake

As we mentioned earlier, there’s no way you can be aware of what goes down your drains and your toilets all the time. This, in addition to the constant use of sinks, showers, and toilets, make your plumbing system more prone to emergencies. So, make sure to get a drain snake just to be ready for these sorts of emergencies. With this tool, you will be able to unclog minor drains, and this will come in handy.
