Ho Ho- Oh No! How to Avoid a Holiday Plumbing Catastrophe

Posted by Bill Fenwick on Tue, Dec 20, 2016 @ 01:01 PM


Ah- the smell of gingerbread permeates through the house, the twinkling spruce tree illuminates your window from a mile away, and a pile of presents are vibrantly wrapped in the craft store’s best selection of paper and ribbon. However, as you go to take a sip of eggnog and bite into a delicious holiday cookie, you hear a peculiar banging sound. What could it be? Maybe it’s one of Santa’s elves dropping by a bit early, or perhaps it’s a reindeer who’s recently graduated from flight school and has yet to perfect his landing technique. Nope- it’s just a bursting pipe due to neglect and lack of plumbing maintenance.

Nothing says, “Happy Holidays,” like trying to get a maintenance guy to your home with just hours to spare before the in-laws arrive. And trust us-
you’ll need to use that time to hang those vintage prints they bought you last Christmas of dogs playing poker that have been tucked away in the garage ever since.

When the holiday to do list is long, don't forget about your plumbing.At Bill Fenwick, we are booked every year with last minute plumbing emergencies during the holidays. Being so preoccupied with other holiday plans, it can be easy to overlook routine plumbing maintenance during this hectic part of the year. With that said, the repercussions and chaos that stem from plumbing emergencies during the holidays can often be the most inconvenient. After all, no one wants a clogged toilet with a house full of guests, or a slab leak in the kitchen while you’re trying to prepare the honeybaked ham.

We also know that there is no such thing as too much hot water during the holidays when you want to escape all of the commotion, so enjoy a hot shower on us. It is better to Contact Bill Fenwick Plumbing sooner rather than later to schedule a maintenance appointment so we can ensure we can help everyone and ensure your holidays are safe, smooth, and spectacular!
