Like everyone else, plumbers are also facing numerous problems due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unlike other jobs, most of the work done by plumbers is not possible to do online. Plumbers have to be on-site in person to deal with the problem and carry out their operations. Here is how plumbers are being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. 1. Cancellation and lack of Jobs: Many health organizations, including WHO, have advised us against going out of or inviting outsiders into our homes, except for emergencies. It has led many people to cancel any plumbing job they were planning before the lockdown. As such, there have not been many jobs available for the plumbers to do on a daily basis, unless they have to respond to an emergency or the work on the projects that are considered to be ‘essential.’ 2. Compromise on Personal Safety: Although many guidelines have been issued to protect professionals and customers, plumbing work is still something that could compromise their hygiene. Although some plumbers have chosen to stay at home, many plumbers do not have that choice. They will accept the job, even if it compromises their safety. The danger is not just from going out [...]

By |2021-03-28T00:04:23+00:0028th March 2021|Uncategorised|

Drain cleaning is one of the essential requirements. Especially when talked about the maintenance of the residential areas, keeping drains in good condition is necessary. The smell of sewage, the unusual noise from drains, water backing up, and the slow drainage are the signs that one needs drain cleaning. Most people use the chemicals to clean out the clogged drains, but they are not a good choice. Plumbers prefer to use mechanical means, and 247 drains provide the best services. A chemical cleaner is not the solution to a clogged drain. A chemical drain cleaner can lead to long-term problems because they are an acidic cleanser.

But it damages your pipes, especially if you have got old cast-iron pipes, it causes channel rot. With the excessive use of chemicals, the bottom of the cast-iron pipes is eaten away. And this causes a lot of damage to the house and your health. People get a stopped-up drain, and they may not want to call a plumber, but 247 drains are going to cost you less [...]

Keeping the sewage clear is harder work than you would initially think. People are used to throwing things down the toilet without really thinking about what they are doing. Of course, there is the occasional accidental drop of a phone or glasses. But there are many more, non-accidental drops that can cause you enormous problems. The usual suspects are for example wet wipes, hair, grease and fat. Grease It is common to think that if you wash hot liquid cooking grease down the sink, followed by hot water, it should be fine. But the thing is, this grease is only liquid because it is warm. When it cools down, it becomes solid and sticks to the pipes. Maybe not immediately down your sink, but definitely further on. Also, even grease that is naturally liquid can be sticky. And will happily join in. Every little bit of additional grease will build up. And form a thicker and thicker layer. Anything else that is flushed down will get stuck in this layer. And in the end, could even block the entire pipe. Wipes You should never ever try put wipes down the [...]
