Avoid Plumbing Emergencies over Your Christmas Holiday

Avoid Plumbing Emergencies over Your Christmas Holiday

You may not know it but the holidays tend to be the busiest time of year for plumbers. Your kitchen and bathrooms get far more use at this time of year than they do at any other. With so many friends and relatives stopping in for food and festivities, we get calls from people experiencing plumbing issues pretty frequently during the months of November and December. In order to prevent you from having to call us in a panic this week, we’ve decided to disclose the best ways to ensure that you do not experience a plumbing emergency during the holiday season.

Prepare for Your Holiday Meals

When it comes to using your kitchen this holiday season, you are definitely going to be taking advantage of your sink and garbage disposal far more than you do during other times of the year. Make sure to clean your garbage disposal out before you begin making any big holiday meals. You can do this by putting two cups of ice as well as a cup of rock salt into the disposal and allowing cold water to go down the disposal while it is turned on. If you experience issues with your garbage disposal even after you clean it out, it may be a good idea to call a plumber.

Prepare for Your House Guests

While your guest bathroom may not see a lot of traffic most of the time, the holidays are the exception. Make sure that all of the plumbing in your guest bathroom is working properly so that your guests can enjoy their stay. This means ensuring that the water in the shower has good pressure, that your toilet flushes and that your sink’s drain isn’t clogged. If you discover that something is wrong with the plumbing in your guest bathroom, you can have it fixed before your overnight guests arrive.

Make Sure Your Pipes Are Taken Care Of

If you want to make sure that you won’t be experiencing any other weird plumbing emergencies over the holidays, always check that your pipes are in good condition. Your pipes can become frozen during the winter which in turn can cause flooding and major water damages. Not to mention, you won’t have water when and where you need water. If you do have a pipe burst in your home, be sure to contact the professionals at High 5 Plumbing today and let us fix your issue before your friends and family arrive.
