Thanksgiving is next week and then, before you know it, we’ll be in the middle of the December holiday season. If you’re having guests in your home, you’ll want them to remember the warmth of your hospitality, not a plumbing or heating disaster. Call Petri Plumbing & Heating, your Brooklyn plumber, to make sure that your home is ready for entertaining. Here are the top three things to check to get ready for holiday guests.
First, your kitchen. We hope that you didn’t experience a garbage disposal disaster before Halloween when you tried to put all those pumpkin seeds and fibrous pumpkin pulp down the drain. There’s a similar reason why plumbers get more phone calls the day after Thanksgiving than any other day — the garbage disposal has met its match with the leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner. If your garbage disposal is an older model, there are disposal on the market today that will grind up just about anything. Let us show you what’s available. And do yourself and your pipes a favor and never pour grease down the sink.
Is your kitchen sink and faucet ready for all that cooking and dishwashing? Did you know that you can get a touchless kitchen faucet that will turn on and off when your hands are covered in raw poultry or stuffing? Is it time for a new dishwasher? Is your old dishwasher free of lime scale and soap scum and ready to power through those dinner dishes?
Next, the bathroom. Imagine your embarrassment if your guests encounter a non-working bathroom. If your toilet is giving you trouble with normal usage, imagine when it’s subject to heavy use from a house full of guests. There are still a lot of toilets in Brooklyn that are very old and use an excessive amount of water. We can install a new toilet that you never have to worry about when guests use your restroom. Does your sink or tub drain slowly? We offer complete drain cleaning services. You don’t want the lavatory sink backing up when your guests use it.
Finally, your water heater. You don’t want your water heater on give out when you’re entertaining, and you have all that cooking to do and dishes to be washed. We’ll check the performance and safety features on your water heater. We offer high-quality water heater repair services that can help you save money on costly water heater replacement projects.
If you want your guests to remember what a great hostess you are, let the Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating make sure your kitchen and bathrooms are ready for the holidays. Give us a call today!
