Roto-Rooter Tips on Faucet and Drain Repairs

Remember the last time you had to repair your kitchen faucet. When you grabbed your tools out of the garage and went to fix the faucet, were you feeling some anxiety? Were you reviewing all you know about kitchen faucets, hoping that you did not make a bigger problem than you started with? If you felt anxiety, you may wish to defer to our experienced Roto-Rooter technicians in the future. They are available day or night, seven days a week.

Repairs on kitchen faucets are fairly common. The kitchen area gets a lot of use. The food disposer flushes undesirable items down the sewer system on a regular basis. During breakfast, lunch, and dinner preparations the motor is running!

Have you ever had a problem with your drain clogging as a result of the wrong items being put into the food disposer? That is a common occurrence. Here are some guidelines to follow when putting items in the garbage disposal:

  • Scraps—do not put vegetable and fruit peelings into the food disposer. Egg shells are also a no-no. Putting things, like potato peelings, into the disposer will surely clog your drains.
  • Dinner clean up—be careful of what you scrape from your dinner plates into the food disposer. Avoid putting things like meat and large scraps into the system.
  • Grease—you should never put grease into your sewer system. Do not pour leftover grease into the food disposer. Items like this should be poured into a collection jar with a lid and placed into your kitchen trash can. Wipe the pan with a paper towel to get the remaining grease.
