Preventing Drain Disasters During the Holidays

Preventing Drain Disasters During the Holidays

The holidays can be particularly demanding on your home's plumbing system, and especially drains. With the extra demands brought on by holiday visitors and large meals, the risk of clogs increases significantly.

Here are some tips to avoid drain problems during the holidays.

1. Deep frying your turkey this year? Remember to never dispose of fryer grease down the drain! Even a floor drain. Instead, put it in a sealed container and freeze it if possible before putting it in the garbage.

2. Coffee ground should not be put down the drain or disposal.

3. Make sure your kitchen and bath drains have a grate or screen to prevent debris like hair and other waste from building up in the drain pipe.

4. Rinse the drain with hot water to prevent oil and grease from accumulating.

5. If your drains are prone to clogging, consider a safe, environmentally friendly option for keeping your plumbing system working smoothly.

Have a clogged drain?

First, try physically clearing the drain with a plunger. We recommend avoiding the use of chemical drain cleaning products. They can be hazardous to use and store in the home and can damage your plumbing fixtures.

If all else fails to clear your clogged drain, Call Ostrom Electrical and Plumbing. We're here to help anytime.

 
5 Ways Water Softeners Help Around the Home

5 Ways Water Softeners Help Around the Home

Having hard water in the home can cause many problems, from minor annoyances to potentially expensive damage.

Here are five hard water problems a water softener can prevent.

Wasted soap and detergent
The minerals in hard water, primarily calcium and magnesium, combine with soap and detergents creating a "curd" that requires additional soap to clean away. Softened water reduced the amount of soap needed and rinses off more easily.

Soap scum rings in the bathtub and stains on glass shower enclosures
That same hard water and soap curd that makes soap less effective also clings to surfaces and resisted rinsing away.

Streaks on glassware, silverware and dishes.
If you're seeing unsightly spots and ring when emptying the dishwasher, you have a hard water problem. Adding additional detergent and using an extra rinse cycle can help, but adds to the expense of cleaning dishes.

Skin and hair that are never clean and soft feeling.
During drier winter conditions hard water can aggravate dry, cracked skin and make hair dull and more prone to damage.

Hard water builds up scale deposits in all water-using appliances and clogs hot water pipes.
Finally, hard water can damage appliance like water heaters, humidifiers and coffee makers, to name just a few.

Have questions about hard water in your home? Call Ostrom Electrical and Plumbing. We're here to help.
