Tips to Help Prevent Holiday Plumbing Problems
Dec 11, 2014Dinner preparations and visiting families and friends can put extra strain on your plumbing system during the holidays. While you can always call bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of Dallas/Fort Worth for all of your plumbing needs, here are a few tips to help you prevent holiday plumbing emergencies this year.
Holiday Plumbing Tips:
- Use Hot Water - If you notice your sink is draining a little slowly, try pouring hot or near-boiling water down the drain. This can help break up any organic compounds or soap scum.
- Clean with Baking Soda - Adding baking soda to your sink cleaning can help keep your drains clear!
- Be Mindful Flushing - Remind your holiday guests to be mindful of what they are flushing down the toilet. Many items like paper towels and baby wipes should be thrown away, rather than flushed. They can block the drain line!
