The holiday season is upon us and that means you need to get ready your home ready for family and friends from both near and far. Now, your guests aren’t able to look at you plumbing the same they can look at your holiday centerpiece. However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t prepare it for all of the visitors you’ll have. After all, if your plumbing doesn’t work it doesn’t matter how well you decorated your home. Read the tips in this blog to keep your plumbing working well throughout the entire holiday season. Be sure to use them if you don't want to have to call for plumbing repair services in the middle of your holiday dinner.

How to Keep Your Sinks and Toilet Clog Free
  • If you can keep your toilet and sinks clog free, you’ll be at an advantage during the holiday. This is because you’ll most likely need to pay your local plumber holiday pay if you need their services during the holidays.
  • Keep fat out of the drain: Do not pour cooking grease down your kitchen drain.
  • Always run water when using garbage disposal: If you want your garbage disposal to work efficiently remember to run water.
  • Not everything belongs in your garbage disposal: You should keep starchy foods and animal bones out your garbage disposal.
  • Don’t use your toilet like a garbage can: You should keep a garbage can in your bathroom, because you toilet should only be used for when nature calls and toilet paper. If you put anything else in your toilet, you’ll clog it.
  • Clean your drains - Prep your drains for the holiday by pouring a cup of vinegar and a cup of baking soda down your kitchen and bathroom drain.
  • Put a cover on it - Place a drain cover in your kitchen sink to catch food and a drain cover in your bathroom sink to catch hair. This will prevent a lot of clogs and save you time during the holidays. Who wants to deal with a clogged sink on Christmas Eve?  



Garage Door Repair Tips for New Homeowners

Did you just buy a new home and realize that you are now in charge of maintaining your home? Now, there’s no cause for concern. You just have a good deal of learning ahead of you. After all, if you have what it takes to buy a home, then you have what it takes to maintain your home. This blog post will go over how to maintain your garage door and when it’s best to get professional garage door repair services.

Garage Door Maintenance Tips
Lubricate moving parts - Your garage door has many moving parts and it’s highly important that they are lubricated on a regular basis. We suggest getting a can of spray lubricant specifically designed for garage doors and apply it to all of the moving parts, including:
  • Rollers
  • Top of the rail
  • Hinges
  • Springs
  • Bearing plates

Clean the tracks - If you notice any dirt or debris on the tracks, it’s a good idea to clean them. Turn off the power to the garage door and clean the tracks with a damp rag. This should get rid of most dirt. If you notice that there’s still some left, use a handheld vacuum to clean it. Allow the tracks to dry completely before turning the power back on.


Why Keep Major Repairs to the Pros
Now, while it’s totally reasonable for you to maintain your garage door, the same can’t be said for repairs. That’s because a garage door can weigh upwards of 200 pounds. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could cause the garage door to collapse on you. It’s more important for you to be alive, then to save money on garage door repair. If you can’t afford professional garage door repair, then ask the company if they can split the payments up for you. You can also ask them if they would be willing to barter. You can also set aside a moderate amount of money each month for home repairs. That way when the day comes that you need garage door repair, you’ll have the money saved up already.

AC Repair and Maintenance Tips for New Homeowners

Congratulations. You now own your home. The good news is you no longer have a landlord to stop you from getting a dog or painting your walls pink. The bad news is you no longer have a landlord to call if something breaks in your house. The truth is from this point on all home maintenance and repair jobs are up to you. Don’t worry too much though. You can use the tips in this article to learn more about maintaining your hvac unit and when it’s best to call a professional ac repair company.

Change Your AC Air  Filters Regularly
The air filters for your central ac unit need to be changed on a regular basis if you want to prevent damage to your ac unit. If you want your ac to run at optimal performance, change your filters at least once a month. When your filters don’t get changed your ac needs to run harder than necessary and than can cause a lot of damage to the unit. Save yourself a lot of headaches and change them monthly.

Keep Your Outside AC Unit
Another smart way to maintain your air conditioner is to make sure you keep the outside unit clean. Once a month turn your hvac unit off on your circuit breaker and make sure no electricity is going to it. Then take a garden hose and hose off any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on it.   You should also avoid planting any shrubs, vines, or bushes nearby it. After all, you want to do everything you can to make it simple to maintain.

Call Your AC Repairman for Repair Work
If you don’t know how to repair your hvac unit then it’s best to leave it to the professionals. That’s because hvac units aren’t cheap and if you cause irreversible damage you’ll have to pay to get a new one.
