Can I Prevent Drain Clogs?
Our technicians recommended simple prevention techniques for various areas of the home. Food and grease commonly causes kitchen sink clogs. To avoid major clogs, food and grease must be disposed of properly. Dishes should be cleaned before they are placed in the sink. When disposing grease, wait until it cools before placing it into a container. The kitchen sink has a strainer, and it should be cleaned each day. When using the garbage disposal, always grind food with cold water because the water stops food particles from building up in the drain.
Everyone uses the bathroom sink everyday, so cleaning the stopper is important. To prevent toilet clogs, educated kids about the proper amount of toilet paper to use in the toilet. Also, paper towels should never be flushed down the drain.
Our technicians recommended pouring hot water down the drains once a week. This procedure will dissolve soap scum and grease, so that these elements will not clog the pipes. The home septic system, however, will require inspection services every few years.
What Should I Consider When Choosing a Water Heater?
There are several kinds of water heaters. There are gas units, electric units, pump units, and solar units. Electric units are safer than gas units, but gas units offer more energy savings. Heat pump units also provide energy savings, and solar units help the environment. The size must also be considered. A storage tank unit is the most common option. This kind of unit has an insulated tank. The tank holds the heated water until it is ready for use. We usually recommended this option to homeowners.
What Constitutes as a Plumbing Emergency?
Plumbing emergencies happen inside and outside the home. A plumbing problem is considered a plumbing emergency whenever the problem can cause serious home or property damage. Some plumbing emergencies, however, are not always very serious, such as a clogged toilet. A clogged toilet is still considered a plumbing emergency because the toilet is used everyday. We understand how to handle all plumbing emergencies. Homeowners never have to worry after they contact our company.
