Around this time of year, plumbers tend to see a spike in calls. The same culprit tends to be behind most of these plumbing problems: grease. Today, the plumbers near you at 1st Choice Plumbing have some tips on how to keep grease from ruining your holiday celebration:

  • Keep track of greasy foods – Pay attention to the foods you’re serving. If anything’s greasy or oily, make sure the drippings don’t go down the drain. Scrape or wipe off dishes before they’re put in the sink.
  • Use the trash can – When it doubt, throw it in the garbage. This includes scraps on plates and leftovers in the pan.
  • If you get a clog – Call for emergency plumbers near you immediately. Grease clogs can back up your whole plumbing system. You want this problem to be cleared up as quickly as possible.
  • Perform routine maintenance – This is the best way to prevent future problems with grease. Sometimes grease sneaks down the sink but routine maintenance will allow you to clear it out before it builds up and causes an issue.

If you do experience plumbing problems this holiday, call plumbers near you as quickly as you can. 1st Choice Plumbing offers 24 hour emergency plumbing services for people in the Rock Hill, Fort Mill, and Lancaster, SC areas.
