The holidays are officially here, so parties and gatherings are in full effect! As the host, you are probably trying to ensure your house is spotless for your guests, so it is easy to forget the things you can’t see, like plumbing!
While getting things for your holiday party, remember to protect your plumbing. The last thing you want is for your plumbing to cause significant issues right in the middle of karaoke!
Rainaldi Home Services is here to give you some steps to ensure your plumbing is protected before your guests even arrive!
Keep a Plunger Nearby
Clogging a toilet is something other than something a guest will be eager to run and tell the party host. Because of this, clogs are often taken care of after some time, leading guests to continue using the clogged toilet. To prevent this, keep a plunger nearby in the bathrooms guests will use. This way, guests can help themselves if a clog occurs.
Put a Trashcan in the Bathrooms
The only thing someone should place inside a toilet is toilet paper. Even wipes that claim to be flushable can be a nightmare for your drains. Occasionally, guests may dispose of their trash in the toilet if they do not see any trashcans. Eliminate this issue by placing a trashcan in the bathrooms to clarify where waste should be placed.
Place Leftover Food in the Trash
After your holiday party has ended, you are likely exhausted from all the preparation and hosting. Although it is tempting to rush your cleanup process and toss all your dishes in the sink, take the extra time to scrape the leftover food from containers into the trashcan. Putting food, oils, and grease directly in the sink can lead to clogged drains that can cause significant issues. Take this extra precaution, and your plumbing will thank you!
Schedule an Appointment with a Local Plumber
Have you had any pesky leaks in your home for a while now? This is the time to take care of these repairs before your holiday party.
