Holiday Plumbing Maintenance

Home / Holiday Plumbing Maintenance

The holiday season is a busy time of the year at Plumbing Professionals. As the trusted local plumber in Birmingham, AL, we often deal with kitchen sinks and garbage disposals clogged with garbage and food waste from holiday dinners, toilets and shower drains that are backed up due to increased usage from guests, and malfunctioning water heaters. If you don’t want to deal with costly plumbing issues when the holidays are finished, you will want to take steps to maintain your plumbing.

Be Mindful Of What You Throw in Your Kitchen Sink

First of all, make it very clear to your guests what can and cannot go in your kitchen sink. While we offer a range of plumbing services that can repair a broken garbage disposal and unclog a kitchen sink, you can avoid at least some of the plumbing problems associated with the holidays by insisting that your guests put greasy and starchy leftovers in the garbage instead of the sink.

Avoid Using Too Much Toilet Paper

Second of all, be careful about how much toilet paper gets used by your guests. This is a case where it’s best to prepare for the worst-case scenario and assume that more toilet paper than normal will be flushed away. Have a plumbing company look over your toilet to make sure that it won’t get clogged very easily. Do the same for your shower drain if you’re going to have guests stay with you for a few days.

Invest in Professional Drain Cleaning

Finally, have your local plumber clean your drains before you have guests arrive. This should be done every two years anyway to keep your drains in good working order, but if you haven’t done this lately, now is a good time to schedule a drain cleaning to avoid the need for emergency plumbing services. 

Contact Plumbing Professionals today for any questions about our drain cleaning services or professional plumbing repairs. While plumbing issues may seem like just one more thing to worry about as you’re getting ready for a holiday gathering, but it is better than dealing with a plumbing emergency right in the middle of a holiday celebration.
