The holidays are coming! But unfortunately, if you’re not careful, plumbing trouble could be, too. Your plumbing is at the mercy of the fall and winter seasons. As your local plumbing company, Carter Quality Plumbing wants to help you avoid this added stress. Here are our top tips on how to prepare your plumbing for the holidays:
- Clean up before and after – The first step in taking care of your plumbing is to get it nice and clean. Scrub down all your sinks, showers, toilets, and bathtubs regularly. This will help you catch potential plumbing problems quicker – and also make your home feel nice and fresh.
- Be mindful of the garbage disposal – Keep an eye on the garbage disposal this holiday season. Try to use the trash can as much as possible when disposing of food waste. Also, make sure silverware, grease, oil, and fibrous foods don’t go into the disposal.
- Deal with clogs immediately – Never ignore a clog, no matter what time of year it occurs. Clogs will only get worse, especially if your household has an influx of guests. When you have a clog, call us right away.
- Wrap up the pipes – Finally, help protect your pipes from freezing. Go ahead and wrap them up in insulation before the holidays begin and your schedule gets packed with activity.
When you need to contact a plumbing company during the holidays, don’t hesitate to call Carter Quality Plumbing.
