During this holiday season, you may have concerns that your Brooklyn home plumbing may not be prepared for the onslaught of holiday visitors. To help ensure that everything works smoothly in your Brooklyn home this year for the holidays, having the plumbing professionals at Petri Plumbing inspect and clean your drains can help keep everything flowing properly in your Brooklyn home.
The Petri Plumbing expert plumbers have managed a number of emergency plumbing or drain calls during the holidays, so to keep the plumbing in your Brooklyn home free of issues, we recommend the following tips for peace of mind this holiday season.
Have your plumbing professionally inspected
The team at Petri Plumbing can completely inspect your plumbing and drains to check for any signs of debris or clogs that may hamper the ability of your plumbing system to keep up with holiday demands. It’s a good idea to have a plumber check all your drains before the onslaught of guests to give you peace of mind that everything is working well.
Use easily dissolvable biodegradable toilet tissue
If you are planning on having a large number of visitors during this month, using an easily dissolvable, biodegradable toilet tissue can help minimize the opportunities for toilet clogs to occur. In addition, if any younger family members are using too much toilet tissue when they use your restrooms, you can help minimize the possibility of accidental overflow problems.
Manage your garbage disposal usage
Garbage disposals are a great tool to incorporate green plumbing techniques into your home, but misuse of a garbage disposal during the holidays could create a big problem in your Brooklyn home. Moderation is the key for garbage disposal use; managing the volume of food being used in a disposal, while minimizing the potential of clogging by avoiding items like coffee grounds, eggshells, banana peels and excess grease and oil can help prevent a serious garbage disposal issue.
Add drain covers for all drains in your house
Increased volume of sinks, showers and tubs from holiday visitors to your Brooklyn home can increase the likelihood of unwanted drain clogs. The addition of drain covers to sinks and shower/tub drains can help manage the amount of hair and foreign objects in your drain to help keep your drains flowing smoothly.
