When it comes to preparing for any gathering in your home, there are plenty of things to consider. You want to ensure things are clean and decorated nicely for starters. Then you need to factor in the food that everyone will eat. Of course, you also need to make sure that your plumbing is in good shape to handle whatever your guests throw at it.
We know that your plumbing may not be the thing at the forefront of your mind. That said, we’d strongly suggest checking on your plumbing systems before they start causing problems in the middle of your party!
Here are some of the ways that you can ensure that your plumbing system is in the right condition for those gatherings to come.
Be Careful What You Put Down the Drains
When it comes to keeping your drains flowing freely, it is good to keep tabs on what you put down the drains first and foremost. Keeping problematic items out of your drains is the best way to prevent issues in the first place. The next time you are in the kitchen you should make sure you keep away from dumping the following down the drain:
- Fats, Oils, and Grease (aka F.O.G)
- Bones from meat
- Harder fruit and vegetable peels or hard shells
- Coffee grounds, rice, and pasta
If you are worried you’ll forget about keeping these items out of the drain, you can always post a list next to the sink so that you and anyone else in the house know what to drain and what to toss out.
Get a Professional to Tackle Clogs
Have you been having trouble with the drains in your home? Clogs can happen to everyone but some of the tougher ones will require more than a plunger and elbow grease. In situations with tougher clogs, we’d suggest reaching out to a plumber in Newton Square, PA for help, rather than using a chemical drain cleaner to attempt to clear the drains. We can use a drain snake or hydro jet to clear away stubborn build-up.
Consider Water-Friendly Upgrades
A great way to ensure that your plumbing is in peak condition for you and your guests to use is to look into some upgrades ahead of time. If you have faulty faucets, running toilets, leaky pipes, or plumbing systems that are wasting water, it may mean it is best to upgrade some things. Our team members can help pair you up with plumbing appliances that are going to save water and do a more efficient job.
Make Sure to Get a Professional For Your Plumbing Needs
Whatever goes on with your plumbing system, whether it is a clogged drain or a leaking pipe, you should reach out to a professional when you need assistance. A trained plumber like the ones on our team is always going to be able to get the job done properly.
