Limiting the amount you are using the garbage disposal. Overusing your garbage disposal can lead to some concerning issues, especially since the kitchen is used more frequently during the holidays than it is the rest of the year. That ham has to go somewhere, but try scraping your dishes into the trash before washing them in the sink to limit the amount you use your garbage disposal and prevent clogging in your drains that could lead to further issues.

Space out your and your guest’s showers. Nobody likes a cold shower, which is why we recommend spacing out showers every 10-15 minutes. Waiting 10-15 minutes in between showers can help your water heater get back up to speed and help your drains clear.

Keep a wastebasket near the toilet. Having an easily accessible wastebasket near the toilet can make a world of difference when it comes to your plumbing. The waste bin will help your holiday guests avoid putting anything but toilet paper in the toilet, which reduces the risk of clogging your toilet or drain.

Ensure you are properly disposing of grease. Grease is one of the worst things you can put in your sink, so it is vital to ensure the proper disposal of cooking grease every time. We recommend you put leftover grease in either a can or a disposable plastic bag to put in the garbage. By doing this, you will avoid any clogging that cooking grease can cause your drains.

Get your drains prepared before your guests arrive. Plumbing can be intimidating if you are unsure where to start, but luckily Jack Ward & Sons are here to help!
