When guests come to stay, the extra showers, dishes, laundry and hand washing can increase the cost of your water bill. Add in dripping taps and your water usage can skyrocket, causing a costly surprise when the water bill arrives. Have dripping taps repaired, save water and save money.
Ensure Toilets are Working Correctly
A blocked toilet in a home full of people can be a recipe for disaster. Avoid the stress and worry and ensure everyone’s comfort by ensuring all toilets are working correctly before guests arrive. A toilet that is blocked, leaking or making unusual noises is a toilet in need of a professional inspection and repairs.
Have your Hot Water System Maintained
To ensure it’s functioning correctly, ensure your hot water system is maintained regularly. The weather may be getting warmer, but even so, no-one wants a cold shower. Mainline Plumbing and Cheap Hot Water and Gas can do a formal inspection plus adjust the temperature of your hot water system to ensure there is plenty of hot water to meet the extra demands.
Unblock Drains and Use Plug Hole Strainers
Kitchens and bathrooms are two places in the home heavily relied upon when guests come to stay. A small drain blockage can quickly escalate therefore, ensure water is freely flowing down your kitchen sink and bathrooms basin and shower.
A great way to help prevent blocked drains is by using plug hole strainers. They act like a waste basket to stop any crumbs and food scraps washing down kitchen drains and hair and grooming products washing down the bathroom basin.
