The winter holidays are a time of cheer and celebration, but they can also be the reason behind plumbing-related headaches.

Let us help you make your holiday merry and bright by following these four easy tips to avoid common plumbing issues this holiday season!

Plan Ahead

Before you start putting up all the holiday sheets and covers, plan which rooms and bathrooms will be used by your guests. You can schedule proper maintenance and checkup services by your trusted plumbers before your guests arrive.

If you plan to use bathrooms that have not been used in a while, take some time to run your faucets and showers, checking for leaks or odd issues.

Prepare Your Plumbing for Holiday Guests

With the overuse of plumbing necessities during the holidays, your plumbing system can be overworked. You can avoid future plumbing disasters from taking place by following two easy steps:

  1. Ensure your plumbing is in good working order. You can do so by checking for any leaks or blockages and getting them fixed before your guests arrive.

  2. Alert your guests of any plumbing issues. If there are any problems or areas that should be avoided, teach your guests about them. This will help limit the number of issues that may occur and help prevent them.

These simple steps can help you prepare your guests for the holiday stress-free!

Keep Your Drains Clear of Holiday Cooking

With holiday guests come holiday feasts! One of the biggest plumbing problems during the holidays is clogged drains and pipes.

In your kitchen, grease can build up inside your pipes, gradually narrowing the opening until it finally becomes blocked. Food waste also attracts pests like rats and cockroaches, which can invade your home searching for a meal.

You can work to avoid these problems by making sure to keep your drains clear of holiday cooking grease and food waste. Dispose of oil appropriately used, and scrape plates into the trash instead of down the drain.

Avoid Unnecessary Faucet Use

Another tip to avoid plumbing issues this season is to ensure you do not unnecessarily let your faucets. Dripping faucets can add up to a lot of wasted water and money.

Alert your guests and keep an eye out for dripping faucets, and turn off the water when it is not in use!
