October is officially here, which means the anticipation of fall is underway. While purchasing candy to prepare for trick-or-treaters and decorating your home with spooky embellishments, it’s crucial not to overlook your plumbing.
Don’t let plumbing horrors haunt your Halloween festivities this year! The experts at Michael’s Plumbing have some tips to ensure a trouble-free October for your plumbing system.
The Haunting of Leaky Faucets
The drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet can drive any homeowner insane. Beyond the annoyance, a leak can lead to significant water damage in your home that is costly to repair. If you suspect a leak in your home, call a plumbing professional immediately to take care of the problem.
The Curse of Clogged Drains
Imagine the horror of having a clogged drain at your annual Halloween party! Prevent this chilling scenario by being mindful of what goes down your drain. Some items that should never go down your drain are grease, coffee grounds, bones, vegetable peels, and bones. (Halloween candy is also prohibited from going down your drain!) If drain clogs are a constant issue in your home, consider using drain covers to catch debris to keep your drains free-flowing.
Beware of Ghostly Toilet Troubles
Toilets can give you and your family a fright if they are not properly maintained. To help your toilet run smoothly, educate your household on what should and should not be flushed. Similar to drains, toilets are not indestructible, and it is important to remember that they are not garbage disposals. If you hear strange sounds from your toilet or if it won’t stop running, schedule a plumbing service appointment.
