Things You Don’t Know About Plumbers
Tuesday, December 8th, 2020
While plumbers are something we all need, we don’t often interact with customers that much. There are a lot of things you may not know about plumbers and plumbing services. Guardian Plumbing Services, Inc., a plumber in Annapolis, MD, offers some insight into things you may not know about your plumber.
Every Day is Unexpected
When you’re a plumber, every day is something different. We work with both residential and commercial customers. Something that may seem like a simple fix may turn out to require hours of work. You never know what you’re going to get. We want to make sure we make things easy for you and fix your problem right, no matter how big or small it is. We’ll tackle it with the same gusto.
Kitchen Waste is a Nightmare
Many people focus on the fact that plumbers often have to deal with human waste in their job. But that’s not even the worst of it. We’d take human waste over kitchen waste any day. The grease that accumulates in the kitchen is the thing plumbers like dealing with the least. Particularly if you own a restaurant, it’s crucial to keep up with routine maintenance for kitchen waste and avoid the catastrophes of a grease buildup.
Plumbing Can Be Dangerous
Danger is probably not something you think about when you think of plumbing. The pressure that happens when pipes burst is no joke. It’s the equivalent of a fire hydrant spraying directly at the person trying to fix it. Plumbing also requires the use of heavy-duty equipment, chemicals, and exposure to some pretty gross stuff. Safety is essential for us as plumbers and also why we advise calling the professionals when something goes wrong.
It’s Easier to Fix it Now
Keeping up with regular maintenance for your plumbing is going to be both easier and cost way less than something big happening down the road. If you have a septic tank, get it pumped regularly. If you have an industrial kitchen, make sure you’re cleaning out drains and aren’t dumping grease where it shouldn’t be. A little bit of money and time now can save you a lot of both down the line.
Try to Avoid the Garbage Disposal
Many people hear the words ‘garbage disposal’ and think they can dump anything they want down it. They’re very wrong. If you have any questions about putting something in the disposal, don’t do it. They should be used very minimally, if at all.
