Don’t Make These Thanksgiving Plumbing Mistakes
Thanksgiving is just a week away and it’s time to get your dinner plans in order. Between defrosting the turkey and inviting over guests we know that the holidays can become hectic. Make sure that you don’t make these Thanksgiving plumbing mistakes.
Thanksgiving Plumbing Mistakes:
- Not Putting a Garbage Can in the Guest Bathroom – Remind your guests that only waste and toilet paper go down the bathroom sink. Keep an empty garbage can in there so that they aren’t tempted to flush what they shouldn’t.
- Dumping Grease Down the Sink – There tends to be a lot of grease leftover after cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Although grease may look like a liquid, it is important that you keep it far away from your kitchen sink. When cool, the grease will harden and stick to the sides of your plumbing pipes, causing a clog.
- Not Cleaning Off Plates First – You might be tempted to throw all of the plates directly into the dishwasher, but in most homes, your dishwasher is directly attached to your kitchen’s garbage disposal. Make sure that any grease, as well as any starchy or fibrous foods that can cause clogs are scraped off into the trash first.
