Portland Drain Clogs and Pumpkins

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 in Drain Cleaning Portland

Every year, even more than one billion pounds of pumpkins are produced in America, most of which are sculpted into jack-o’-lanterns during Halloween time. That’s a bunch of leftover pulp. And, a great deal of pulp and seeds that can obstruct drains prior to the end of the Halloween season.

Water Heater Repair Portland OregonĀ is an usual Halloween visitor to many of the locals needing Drain Cleaning Portland helpĀ thanks to sticky pumpkin pulp and seeds. The weeks getting to Halloween, we get great deals of calls from residents struggling with pulp-clogged garbage disposals and clogged kitchen area sink drains.

Pumpkin pulp is not safe for disposals because it is soft, stringy and mushy. It will dry out and harden, choking off drains and garbage disposals, developing a big mess that will need an expert drain cleaning.

On the same note, it is also smart not to attempt flushing the pulp or seeds down the toilet either. Simply toss all of it out in the trash!

When creating pumpkins, do so on newspaper. for it can quickly be covered up and tossed into the garbage can or a compost heap. The seeds can be separated and roasted for a delicious treat or they can be air-dried and planted in the spring after the last frost to expand next year’s Halloween pumpkin.
