How do the Holidays Affect Your Plumbing?

December 15, 2019

While the holidays can be a fun and festive time, they can also be stressful. Your plumbing can feel this stress too! Plumbing issues are common for people who entertain over the holidays. Read on to learn about common holiday plumbing issues so you can get ahead of these problems.

Clogged Drains and Toilets

Clogs can happen for a few different reasons. The first is simply from overuse. If you have older pipes or have not been maintaining your plumbing, you might run into issues if your toilets or sinks are used more frequently with holiday guests. Kitchen drains can also clog as the result of cooking issues. Pouring oil down the drain or improperly disposing of kitchen waste can lead to a clogged drain. Fortunately, a plumber can easily solve these problems.

Clogged Garbage Disposal

This is another common issue that you might run into during the holiday season. We tend to think that our garbage disposals can handle anything, so it’s not uncommon for these small tools to become overworked. Attempting to fix clogged garbage disposal yourself can be dangerous. Call a professional and we will take care of the issue for you.
