New Year Drain Recovery After the Holidays
The holidays are a wonderful time of year, but they are also pretty taxing on your plumbing and drainage systems. As guests are constantly coming in and out of home, utilizing your sink, toilet, and even shower – it can negatively impact your garbage disposal and pipes leading to potential damage such as clogs, pipe backups, and leaks. Just as you may need a long nap after a crazy holiday season, plumbing needs to recover too.
Luckily, here are some ways to refresh your plumbing in the New Year.
First, before the holiday season begins, inspect your plumbing system. Check for any new cracks, stains, leaks, or clogs that may exist. Run the disposal system and listen for unusual noise. Also, run the faucets in all drains to test proper functionality. If you notice abnormalities, you will be able to catch them and ultimately fix them before it gets out of hand.
Even though you likely gave all of your holiday guests brief drain protection tips, they probably did not all listen. We suggest cleaning out your garbage disposal systems, a fairly simple task, and one of the easiest things you can do to prevent a plumbing disaster. Follow these simple steps:
- Firstly, disconnect the disposal power supply.
- Next, use a flashlight to identify objects that do not belong in the disposal.
- If the waste is reachable, use a set of tongs to reach in and remove it from the drain. For safety reasons, do not ever stick your hand down the disposal, even if unplugged.
- If the clog is seemingly further down the drain, we recommend using a drain cleaning solution to break down the clog. Thankfully, Trufusion has your back!
