The winter holidays are coming, and you know what that means: It’s time to hang out with your family and friends, open gifts, and enjoy delicious meals. Of course, somebody has to host a holiday event, and this year perhaps, that host is you. You know hosting a holiday event takes weeks to prepare; you have to think up a menu, dig up the decorations from the basement or attic, and fire up your cleaning routine! But some hosting tasks, like toilet clogging, don’t occur to people until it’s too late. If you your toilets clog, inevitably, your Exton, PA, home will need serious sewage cleanup. So how do you prevent this from happening? How do you avoid problems so your fun holiday event won’t be ruined?
Be Careful about What You Flush
When you have a lot of people in your home, you’re bound to run into trouble with the bathroom situation. Somebody, child or adult, might flush inappropriate items down the toilet. You should never treat a toilet like a trash can or garbage disposal. Don’t try to flush diapers, feminine napkins, toys, food, pet-related items, or anything else that isn’t toilet paper down the toilet. Be prepared with a plunger or two if you think you might really run into a problem. You don’t want to have to run around to find an open store (or an available plumber) on a holiday. Carelessness could lead to the need for sewage cleanup, which could also lead to the need for water damage restoration.
Ask for a Plumbing Inspection
Before the big day, spare yourself the stress of needing sewage cleanup, and ask for a plumbing inspection. This will help you catch any problems before they have a chance to worsen.
