Plumbing Issues to Watch Out for Before the Busy Holiday Season


The holiday season is almost here, and while we all look forward to hosting parties and welcoming our loved ones over to our homes, it’s important to ensure that everything in your home is working efficiently. Your plumbing system, in particular, needs to be in top shape to avoid any unwanted surprises during the busiest time of the year.

1. Clogged Drains

Our kitchens and sinks are usually very busy during the holiday season, and clogged drains are common occurrences. If you notice water taking longer than usual to drain, it could be a sign of a blockage. You can use a plunger or a drain snake to clear simple clogs, but if it’s more serious, call a professional to help you.

2. Leaks

Leaks can be problematic in your bathroom, kitchen, or basement. The holiday season means you’ll be hosting many guests, putting more strain on your plumbing system. Inspect your pipes, plumbing fixtures, faucets, and appliances for any leaks and have them repaired before they cause more significant problems.

3. Water Heater Issues

Your water heater is crucial to your plumbing system, especially during cold winter months. If you are hosting guests, you’ll use more hot water than usual, putting more pressure on the water heater. If you notice a strange smell, noisy operation, or any other unusual activity, it’s time to get your water heater checked by professionals.

4. Garbage Disposal

One of the most essential appliances in your kitchen is the garbage disposal. Due to the increased use of your kitchen during the holiday season, you’ll be doing much more cooking and generating more food waste. Ensure your garbage disposal is in great shape free of clogs, to avoid accidents during this busy period.

5. Toilets

Your toilets need to be in top shape as more guests are using them. Check for any leaks, strange noises, or running water. It’s best to fix any of these issues before they become more significant problems during the holiday season.
