How to Avoid Scary Pipes
When the season for spooky costumes and Jack o’ Lantern’s arrives, fewer things are scarier for homeowners than a broken plumbing system. If the temperature is dropping and the smell of apple cider fills the air, it’s time to start thinking about pipe maintenance. Proper care is the key to determining if this winter will be full of tricks or treats. At Mr. Rooter of Atlanta, we provide a wide range of plumbing repair and maintenance services for home and business owners in Atlanta, Suwanee, Sandy Springs, Roswell and other nearby communities. Here are a few ways for you and your family to avoid scary pipes this Halloween.
Insulate Pipes to Avoid a Horrifying Emergency
Temperatures can fluctuate wildly in the months of October and November. If the weather in your city is going from freezing to frighteningly hot, it’s important that you prepare your pipes. An unexpected frost could cause excessive air pressure in your plumbing system, and create the perfect conditions for busted and broken pipes. If you want to avoid water damage and unnecessary leaks, insulating your pipes can help to regulate and stabilize temperatures.
Keep Pumpkin Goo Out of Your Kitchen Sink
Most people don’t think twice about throwing the slimy remnants of their Halloween décor down the drain. Unfortunately, even if you’re using a garbage disposal, all those sticky pumpkin guts can wreak havoc on your pipes. Their stringy structure can harden inside your plumbing system, causing a large blockage deep inside your sewer line. Avoid unnecessary clogs by laying your carving scraps out on newspaper. This will make it easy to find the seeds for roasting or planting and you can quickly toss the mess without worrying about backups.
Get Your Screeching and Clanking Pipes Repaired
Are you hearing strange sounds coming from your walls at night? There’s no need to fear, it’s probably not ghosts or ghouls, but outdated pipes. If you’re hearing banging, clanking or squealing noises from your garbage disposal, pipes or water heater then it’s probably time for a professional plumbing inspection. The experts at Mr. Rooter of Atlanta have all the tools and skills it takes to get your spooky pipes back in working order fast.
