Plumber Tips - Avoid Clogged Drains After Thanksgiving

Written by Jill

What is the busiest day of the year for plumbers? The Day AFTER Thanksgiving due to clogged drains.

As we gather around the table to give thanks this Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your continued trust in my plumbing services. It's been a pleasure serving you throughout the year, and I'm thankful for the opportunity to help keep your home's plumbing in good working order.

With the holiday season in full swing, it's essential to remember some essential plumbing tips to avoid any unexpected clogs and plumbing disasters during this festive time. Here's a little reminder on how to keep your drains happy and prevent any issues:

6 Ways to Avoid Drain Clogs
  1. Dispose of Fats, Oils, and Grease Properly: Thanksgiving means a delicious feast, but avoid pouring fats, oils, and grease down the drain. These substances can solidify and clog your pipes over time. Instead, let them cool, and then dispose of them in the trash.
  2. Use Sink Strainers: When washing dishes or preparing your holiday meals, be sure to use sink strainers to catch food particles and prevent them from going down the drain.
  3. Avoid Excessive Food Scrap Disposal: While it's tempting to scrape all your leftover turkey and sides down the disposal, be mindful not to overload it. Dispose of larger food scraps in the trash to prevent clogs.
  4. Don't Flush Non-Flushable Items: Remind your guests not to flush anything besides toilet paper down the toilet. Wet wipes, paper towels, and other items can cause blockages.
  5. Run Cold Water: When using your garbage disposal, always run cold water to help flush away debris and keep the unit clean.
  6. Schedule Preventative Maintenance: If you haven't had your plumbing system checked recently, consider scheduling a maintenance visit. It can help identify potential issues before they become major problems.

By following these simple guidelines, you can ensure that your Thanksgiving celebration is filled with joy and gratitude rather than plumbing problems. If you ever find yourself in need of plumbing assistance or have any questions, remember that I'm just a phone call away.

Once again, thank you for choosing Campbell's Quality Plumbing as your family plumber. I'm truly grateful for your trust, and I wish you and your family a happy and clog-free Thanksgiving!
