While many individuals are out going shopping the Friday early morning after Thanksgiving day we are active helping too many people with blocked drains and toilets.
It is usually the garbage disposal unit that most individuals have the hardest time with throughout the holiday period with all the extra food preparation that gets done so the disposal works overtime. Things to be mindful of NOT grinding up in the disposal are turkey bones, chicken skin, potato peels, celery (anything stringy) and fruit. Also, make sure you have the water running before turning the disposal on, and then begin chopping stuff up.
Among the biggest thing to keep an eye out for that is simple to do because it is a liquid, is putting cooking oil and grease down the sink drain. It could be a liquid when it goes down, however in a cold drain line (presuming you might be having cold weather already) it can quickly construct up and obstruct the sink drain. Sort of like it does in our arteries, not to put a bad taste in your mouth thinking of all the wonderful food you will certainly be making this holiday … perhaps we must compose a short article about healthy holiday foods next!
Also, if you are having visitors in, make certain to keep a trashcan in plain sight in the washroom NEXT to the toilet. It will help with any undesirable things being flushed … hopefully … at least with adults.
If you seem to have any slow drains now, provide us a call to clean them out good prior to guests arriving and cooking your feast. We would have more time to come before Thanksgiving than after, but you are welcome to save some turkey and stuffing for us for Black Friday.
