As you prepare to host family and friends for Thanksgiving, there’s a lot to think about – the menu, the decorations, and making sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable in your home. While you have likely already covered the basics, have you considered the state of your guest bathroom plumbing?
With extra foot traffic and increased bathroom usage, ensuring your guest bathroom plumbing is in tip-top shape is essential for a successful Thanksgiving celebration. The experts at Standard Heating, Cooling & Plumbing are here to explain how to make sure your guest bathroom plumbing is ready to handle the holiday festivities.
Check for Leaks and Drips
Before your guests arrive, it is a good idea to inspect your guest bathroom for any leaks. Check under the sink, around the toilet, and in the shower for any signs of water leakage or damage. Addressing these issues early can prevent the leak from worsening with the increased usage on Thanksgiving Day.
Test the Water Pressure
If the guest bathroom hasn’t been used in a while, you may need to test the water pressure. Low water pressure can be frustrating to your guests and can also indicate a potential clog in your pipes.
Check the Condition of the Toilet
It is crucial that your toilet is in excellent condition before the guests come knocking at your door. Check to make sure your toilet is not constantly running or is not having any issues with flushing. Addressing these problems early can prevent water damage and embarrassment for your guests.
Stock Up on Necessities
There is no better feeling than using someone else’s bathroom and noticing that the toiletries are fully stocked. Don’t forget to stock your guest bathroom with extra toilet paper, hand soap, and fresh towels. Also, to prevent your guests from putting trash in the toilet and risking a clog put a small trashcan in clear sight.
Schedule a Plumbing Maintenance Appointment
Are you still feeling uneasy about your guests using your guest bathroom? Not a problem. One of the best things you can do is have a professional plumber come and take a look at your plumbing to ensure everything is running properly and to give you additional peace of mind.
