The holidays are here already, and the guests are arriving soon. We all know the holiday preparations will keep us very busy, and one of the least considered issues is a messy, obstructed toilet. It is a frustration of homeowners how quickly the holiday parties will contribute to the dilemma with the present, meal-consuming guests. The reality is that the overflowing toilet can cause odorous damage with the inundation of possible sewage into your home. However, here are some important steps you can take to prevent a toilet clog in your festive powder room.
What can be flushed?
There are a lot of bathroom items that are noted as flushable on the packaging; however, they often contribute to the obstructed plumbing. Facial and diaper wipes, tissues, paper towels, makeup, floss, napkins, fats or oils, coffee grounds, medications, and plastics of any kind are all capable of initiating clogs that grow over time.
Here are some good choices to flush, whether you have a public sewer or septic tank. Biodegradable, recycled, or septic tank toilet paper options are the ones that are the optimal choice. The main goal is to select a version of these three options that will allow the paper to dissolve easily and protect your plumbing from blockage. The comfy, plush versions can swell during the water exposure and cause a concerning plug.
How do I know if the product is safe?
There are tests you can use to make sure that a product is safe in order to preserve your toilet functionality. Of course, it is always a good choice to hide the potentially risky toilet paper or even described products that a guest could potentially flush during the holiday visits. However, here are some ways to make sure a toilet paper brand is safe.
Are there other ways to make sure my toilet is functioning?
Another important step is to take good care of your toilet to protect its functionality. Busy days with the increased amount of use with all your holiday guests can certainly add the strain. Prevent huge hassles on a holiday by making sure everything is safely up and running. Here are a couple special steps you can take to make sure your personal lavatory is a well-tended, secure place of abdominal liberation.
Following these steps will keep your holidays up and running without a yucky backflow of waste. At the end of the day, we wish you a beautifully fragrant, dry restroom for you and your holiday guests. Happy Holidays!
