Many times we find ourselves apologizing to guests that the toilet is clogged, for the shower not draining, or the water not being warm enough. To fix these problems, all you have to do is stay on top of a few little things and you'll be good as gold.
- Clogged toilets happen as toilet bowls get older and when drain pipes get dirty. You want to always keep the flow for every flush. A simple way to do this is to never flush too much at a time. If this means multiple flushes per person, then that should be expressed to everyone using the facility. Also, cleaning regularly will keep dirt and grime from sticking and building up on the sides of drainpipes. Roto-Rooter cleaning products give you a lot of different options that work great for keeping a drain clean and smooth.
- When drains in the bathroom or kitchen stop draining, it is usually because they are not cleaned regularly. In the bathroom, hair, soap, and dirt quickly combine to form serious clogs in the works. To get things flowing again, all you have to do is grab a little screwdriver and pull out the crud in the way. In the kitchen, just use a spoon or anything you can to pull out the visible gunk. After this, pipe cleaner is a great way to strip away the extra garbage in your kitchen and bathroom drains so that they are cleaner than the day they were installed.
- If for some reason you notice that water isn't getting as hot as it should be, it might be a good idea to check out the water heater. If for some reason it is having problems, call a Roto-Rooter technician to come out and perform maintenance to get it running properly before it breaks down entirely.
