CINCINNATI, OHIO–November 12, 2012-- The day after Thanksgiving is the single busiest of the year for Roto-Rooter’s residential plumbers. Big holiday meal preparation and cleanup can lead to a lot of unwanted waste in the kitchen drain and garbage disposal. Also, a house full of holiday guests who require additional clothes washing, showers and toilet flushes puts a strain on household plumbing.
“Often, the case is that a house already has partially clogged drains that go unnoticed, until holiday guests arrive and overwhelm the system,” Paul Abrams Roto-Rooter representative said. Hectic houses full of people and frantic hosts quickly and easily lead to plumbing problems throughout the holiday season.
“Even more problematic is that virtually every traditional Thanksgiving dish is a supreme drain clog culprit,” Abrams continued.
Incoming calls to Roto-Rooter, for kitchen jobs alone, will jump 50% above the average Friday. The four-day Thanksgiving weekend averages a 21% increase over any other Thursday through Sunday period during the year. Roto-Rooter is prepared with additional staff to address the increase in calls and jobs, saving consumers from long waits with guests in the house and outrageous holiday service charges.
