How To Prepare Your Home or Office for the Holidays – 5 Plumbing Tips You Need

How To Prepare Your Home or Office for the Holidays – 5 Plumbing Tips You Need

‘Tis the season… to use our plumbing tips and prepare your home or office for the holidays. You’ll thank us later.  

Here are our top 5 tips to avoid plumbing panic during the holidays: 

Plumbing Tip #1

Don’t let your leftover food destroy your holiday mood

Remember to save your drains from leftovers and food scraps. Not only does this clog your drains, but it also ruins your holiday. Ask your staff or guests to dispose of leftovers in a bin dedicated for food waste.

Plumbing Tip #2

Oils and grease? No thank you.

Oils and grease from yours or your Chef’s cooking utensils can build-up and harden the pipes, eventually clogging your sink. Save yourself from the stress and remove the oil/grease into a disposable container instead of your sink.  

Plumbing Tip #3

Celebrating Christmas elsewhere?

If you’re not home or in the office around the holidays, don’t forget to turn off your water mains before you leave(if possible). This will prevent your home from flooding and allow you to enjoy your holidays without any stress.  

Plumbing Tip #4

Toilets are not bins!

Trust us, we are plumbers and have seen it all. “Flushable” wipes are not really flushable. Paper towels don’t break down as toiler Facial wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton balls, are a big NO NOtoo! To prevent your Staff or guests from blocking the toilets during holidays, put a bin (or two) in your bathroom. It’d also be worth putting up a sign in your bathroom that reminds guests to only flush down the toilet paper.  

Plumbing Tip #5

One dish at a time

No matter how many dishes you have, try avoiding using the dishwasher and washing the dishes in the sink simultaneously.    


Now that you are all prepared to keep your home or office safe during Christmas, Plumbaround wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and an amazing New Year! 🎄🌟



The best plumbers will be reliable, have good customer service and be available for you in emergency situations, in addition to planned maintenance.  By choosing the best commercial plumbers, you are ensuring that they will make all repairs correctly the first time and deliver results you can rely on.

Licensed and Insured – Firstly, confirm that your plumber is licensed and insured (especially within your state). This protects your properties from potential damage and legal consequences.

Experience – Ensure that the commercial plumber has experience which ideally should include working on the type of building(s) that you manage. Plus, working with facilities managers, real estate agents or body corporate managers (or others in similar roles). Experience allows for more efficient and better-quality work.

Old or new plumbing systems? – Has the plumber experience with both old and new plumbing systems? This is particularly important for buildings with older systems. Have they got the tools and skills needed to work on it?

Qualifications – Experience and qualifications don’t always go hand-in-hand, however, sometimes you can find one without the other. Confirm that your chosen plumber is qualified to work on all of the systems they will maintain. Ensure they have passed any necessary tests and training to receive the relevant certification.

Warranty – Pay attention to whether your chosen plumbing company offers a warranty of some sort. Many will offer guarantees on their services for a set amount of time.

Services Offered – Ideally, it’s best to use a single commercial plumbing provider that offers all of the services you need. You do not want to have to work with several companies, and by working with just a single company, you save yourself time and hassle. You may also get financial savings this way.

Communication and Customer Service – The best commercial plumbers will be available 24/7 for emergencies and be at least professional, if not friendly, on the phone.

Recommendations and References – It’s important to pay attention to reviews from others especially for those who’ve used the plumber for similar services to your business.

Reputation – Pay attention to the plumber’s overall reputation. Look for online reviews even if you already have a glowing recommendation. You want to find consistency in the reviews. An occasional issue is not a concern, as long as the plumber quickly resolves it.
