“Brown Friday? You have your colors mixed up!” Unfortunately, we don’t. While the day after Thanksgiving marks the start of some serious holiday shopping for millions of people, you most likely won’t see your plumber at the mall at 4 o’clock in the morning. Black Friday, known as “Brown Friday” to the plumbing community, is the single busiest day of the entire year for plumbers nationwide. With all of the extra people packed into homes and the loads of food being prepared in the kitchens, catastrophe is lurking around every corner.
Have you ever experienced water pooling at your feet in the shower? How about a backed up sink or toilet? We’re all bound to run into a clogged drain once in a while, so it’s good to know how to deal with it effectively to avoid any possible pipe or plumbing fixture damage. Before calling the plumber, you can try to repair the clog yourself with some basic home fixes. If these don’t work, then it may be time to call in the professionals.
