Thanksgiving is almost here, and you know what that means—well, football, sure—but it also means that a lot of people and food will be in your house, perhaps for the entire weekend. If you’re not ready, the plumbing in your Exton, PA, home could suffer and that could also spell the need for water damage restoration from a company like our own. Want to spare yourself the mess and stress? If you start now, you should be ready in no time. The tips below will help. Still not sure about something? Call us at (610) 524-8003.
Know What You Can’t Put in Your Garbage Disposal
When you’re in the middle of making or cleaning up after your Thanksgiving meal, it’s tempting to just stick things in the garbage disposal and call it a day. It’s just one less thing you have to deal with, right? Well, sticking any old thing in the garbage disposal will actually cause headaches and cost you money. For example, if you pour grease or oil in your garbage disposal, it will actually clog. Your sink could also suffer damage, which could lead to the need for water damage remediation. Other things you shouldn’t put in your disposal include bones, eggshells, vegetables, or potato peels.
The more people there are in your house, the more your toilets will be used, so be prepared. Somebody might flush something that shouldn’t be flushed (hygiene products, toys, etc.). In case of clogs, keep a plunger nearby. Don’t be afraid to call a plumber before the situation escalates to water damage restoration status.
