For a smooth, stress-free Christmas, be sure to pay your drains a little extra attention.
Christmas is fast approaching, and with it comes an increased risk of blocked drains. Cooking oils and fat from our favourite festive foods plus wet wipes and other products can all lead to problems. The solution? Take control this Christmas, and schedule a regular Drainage Cleaning Service for extra peace of mind. First though, here are our top tips.
If you are welcoming guests to your home over the festive period, make sure that they are all aware that certain things cannot be flushed down the toilet or poured down the sink. It can be easy to forget to remind them though, especially if you have a lot of company arriving. A good way to ensure that guests don’t forget is to put signs by your sink and in any bathrooms. Whether it’s a message artfully written on a chalkboard or a simple paper printout, these reminders will help guests to remember when and when not to flush or pour.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a lot of delicious food, and that means that people are spending a lot of time in the kitchen this December. Oil and fats are key ingredients in some of the most beloved festive recipes – but those ingredients can also wreak havoc on your drains. So make disposing of leftover cooking oil and other such ingredients correctly as big a part of your cooking routine as, say, washing your hands. Making sure that everyone lending a hand in the kitchen knows that oil goes in the bin, not down the sink, will help to keep your drains clear.
