Homeowners have a lot on their hands the minute they step into their first house. While even the newest homes come with a list of chores and responsibilities of their very own, the feeling of owning your own place outweighs everything else. Adding value to your home through sweat equity over the years not only helps protect the resale value of the house itself, but helps give you a set of skills that you can rely on for a lifetime. One of the most important systems that will give you plenty of heartburn is the plumbing. While it runs through the walls, under your feet, and over your head, it is easy to forget about it until something springs a leak or overflows. With so many plumbers in Manhattan arriving on the scene of some pretty nasty floods and serious water damage to homes, we here at Roto-Rooter have decided to shed some light on some of the most common plumbing problems and how to deal with them.
Clogged Toilets. We all deal with them, and often. While a toilet plunger can do the job for basic clogs, serious backups need the professional help of plumbers in Manhattan. For example, toilets are designed to take in human waste and a bit of toilet paper. Toilet paper can, if used in excess per flush, clog up. These clogs are not serious and are easily dealt with. However, if solids like plastic, garbage, stones, and food products are flushed, they will in no time have a toilet seriously backed up. In these cases, a professional will have to use tools like a snake to push through the backup and pull out the junk.
