Saving money whenever you can is indeed a good practice. But not when it comes to finding plumbers in Queens. Unless you are skilled and experienced enough to unclog a kitchen, toilet or any other pipe, it is best to leave it to the experts.
By trying to carry out the plumbing repairs yourself, you may worsen the state of the toilet or kitchen pipe. This might mean paying more money for repairs. But there is something you can do to save money on repairs. Since prevention is better than cure, think about focusing on preventing the possibility of a clogged kitchen or toilet pipe.
For example, some people have the tendency to throw small or little scraps of food down the kitchen sink. Indeed the scraps might seem small but as time goes on, they might accumulate in the kitchen pipe and become big enough to block it. Immaterial of how small or little the scraps are, make it a practice for you and your family members to throw them into the rubbish bin before cleaning the plate or whatever kitchen utensil.
The same thing applies to the toilet. Some people throw sanitary napkins or other stuff into the toilet bowl prior to flushing the toilet. Their idea is that the water will flush everything away. So there shouldn’t be any problem of toilet pipe being blocked.
But in reality, not all the stuff that is flushed goes all the way down the sewer pipe right into the septic tank. Some of the stuff might actually get stuck in the sewer pipe somewhere. So make it a practice for you and your family members never to throw anything into the toilet bowl except for toilet paper or tissue.
This doesn’t mean that there will be no blocked pipe whatsoever in your home. If your region experiences a very bad winter for a few weeks straight, there is the probability of ice freezing in certain parts of your home’s kitchen, toilet or any other pipe. If that happens, be wise and call the experts at Express Piping to unclog that pipe.
