Holidays: Water Damage Edition

11/2/2021 (Permalink)

We are available 24/7/365.

Most Americans would agree that the Holiday Season kicks off following Halloween. It's a time to gather with family and friends and reflect on the many blessings and lessons of the past year. Overall, it's a very happy time. However, it's also the time of year when we receive the most calls for water damages related to plumbing leaks and backups. Did you know that the single busiest day of the year for plumbers is Thanksgiving?

Luckily, we have tips for navigating the holidays with minimal damage so you can keep celebrating all season long!

Ideas for Reducing Plumbing Issues

  • DON'T use the garbage disposal for peels such as potato, apple, onion, and hard squash such as acorn or butternut. It's also a good idea to avoid disposing of celery, lettuce and other greens, bones, egg shells, and leftover grease or oil. 
  • DO turn on the faucet prior to emptying food waste, DO leave the garbage disposal on until all waste is disposed, DO leave faucet on after disposing of waste to allow prevent clogging the drain.
  • DO stock bathrooms with easily flushable toilet paper and fresh cotton hand towels so that toilets are not clogged.
