I’m not being obscene, (not that I put that past myself), but now is the time of year to unscrew your garden hose and store it. It is also time to release any water from your sprinkler system. If you don’t, you may be sorry this winter and/or spring.
Also, if you haven’t already, kick on that heating system and make sure it is working. The last thing you want to deal with is needing heat and not having it.
Holidays are also a particularly busy time for our drain cleaning technicians as the volume of people staying in their homes (as opposed to being out and about) increases, and more people are entertaining in their homes. This increases the volume of things that can clog a drain, and can cause back-ups. This can be very embarrassing and gross, so be ready with contact information for your favorite, handy-dandy drain-cleaning company.
Lastly, if you have a plumber or heating technician to your home, ask them to check your water heater. Cold showers on cold days make for grumpy faces.
Happy Winter Preparation!
