Owning your own home is a huge responsibility. All the maintenance and repairs fall on your shoulders. Several major systems need regular services, like the heating and cooling systems, water heater, sewers, drains, and sprinklers. Then there are the emergency fix-it jobs that require your immediate attention. If you are a do-it-yourself type, this is an exhilarating challenge, but if you’re not, it is wise to have the number of a trusted repairperson or plumber in Brooklyn NY at your fingertips.
Even if you like fixing things yourself, there will be times when the problem is too big for you to handle on your own. Many times in a very cold winter, pipe breaks can wreak havoc on your home. This is when you call us at Roto-Rooter and ask for help. We are experienced in all aspects of plumbing, pipe repair, and drain and pipe cleaning. When there is water pouring into your home, the first thing to do is turn of the main water valve to your home, the second thing is to call us.
Do you have a sink or tub that will not drain? This can be extremely frustrating, especially when it is the kitchen sink. If you have a dishwasher, you may have noticed that it drains into your food disposer or sink pipe. When there is a clog, all the dirty water from the dishwasher backs up in the sink and can overflow onto the floor. If your liquid drain cleaner is not up to the task, call us at Roto-Rooter. You can try unclogging it yourself, but you maybe cause a larger problem, so it is better to have a plumber in Brooklyn NY come to remove the clog.
A kitchen sink clog is usually caused by the improper use of the food disposer. Putting waste down it that it cannot grind properly will leave particles in your pipes that bind with grease to create troublesome blockages. Everyone in the family who uses the disposer needs to have a lesson on its proper use. Do not ever put citrus peels, potato peels, or grease down it. Don’t put large amounts of leftover food in it, either. Plates should be scraped into the garbage can. When you run the disposal, the water needs to be running full blast into it and it has to run long enough to properly clear itself.
