The holiday season is here, and with the influx of guests in your home, you will want your plumbing to be in tip-top shape. If you need a reliable plumber in Fort Pierce, FL to help perform any maintenance or repair services, don’t hesitate to contact Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning Services. We also offer these tips to ensure your plumbing is ready for the holidays.
Install Extra Garbage Can
You will want to have extra garbage cans on hand in all bathrooms in your home. This is an easy step that can prevent you from needing urgent plumbing services as it encourages everyone to throw their trash in the garbage can instead of flush it down the toilet. Make sure everyone understands that only toilet paper and human waste should go in the toilet.
Install Drain Screens
Another way to prepare your plumbing for the holidays is to install drain screens in your sinks, showers and bathtubs. They can grab food particles, hair, soap residue and other debris and prevent it from getting down the drain and causing a clog that requires professional plumbing repairs.
Clean Your Drains and Garbage Disposal
It’s essential to clean your drains and garbage disposal before you start feasting on your holiday meals. Your drains should be thoroughly cleaned and cleared of any possible clogs. You can use a natural method of part-baking soda, part-white vinegar and pour it down the drain. Flush it out after 30 minutes using hot water.
Your garbage disposal can also be cleaned by using ice cubes and rock salt. Run the disposal and run the cold water afterward. This can also sharpen the blades. Make sure everyone knows not to pour grease or oil down the sink or into the garbage disposal. It can help to avert needing emergency plumbing services.
