Portland Thanksgiving Plumbing Care Tips

Posted by on Nov 21, 2013 in Drain Cleaning Portland, Plumbing Repair Portland, Water Heater Repair Portland Oregon

While many people are out shopping the Friday morning after Thanksgiving, Water Heater Repair Portland Oregon is active assisting lots of individuals with clogged drains and toilets.

It is usually garbage disposals that the majority of individuals have the hardest time with throughout the holiday season with all the extra food preparation that gets done so the disposal works overtime. Things to be watchful of NOT grinding up in the disposal are turkey bones, chicken skin, potato peels, celery (anything stringy) and fruit. Also, ensure you have the water running before you turn the disposal on, and afterwards begin chopping stuff up.

Among the most significant thing to look out for that is simple to do considering that 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 (assuming you could be having cold weather already) it can easily construct up and clog the sink drain. Sort of like it does in our arteries, not to put a bad taste in your mouth thinking of all the terrific food you will be making this holiday … perhaps we must write a short article about healthy holiday foods next!

Also, if you are having guests in, see to it to keep a trashcan in plain sight in the washroom NEXT to the toilet. It will assist with any undesirable items being flushed … ideally … at least with adults.

If you seem to have any slow running drains now, give Water Heater Repair Portland Oregon 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.
