Prepare Your Plumbing for the 4th of July

Independence Day is only weeks away! Although our celebrations will be smaller this year, the 4th of July is still a time for backyard barbecues with your family and watching fireworks. Don’t let a faulty plumbing system ruin your summer party. Find out how you can prepare your plumbing for the 4th of July below!

Be Nice to Your Garbage Disposal

Whether you’re having a social distance party with a few close friends or you’re planning to enjoy this holiday with just your immediate family, the food is arguably still the most important part of your celebrations. Barbeque, hot dogs, sliders, potato salad, corn on the cob, baked beans, red and blue cupcakes — we’re getting hungry just thinking of all our 4th of July favorites! While you’re slicing and dicing away in the kitchen, preparing the best feast of the summer, the garbage disposal is your best friend, so treat it as such! No grease, fats, oils, bones, fiber, or other inappropriate foods should find their way down the garbage disposal. Make sure you and your kitchen helpers are careful not to treat the garbage disposal as a garbage can.

Can Your Gas Line Handle the Heat?

Believe it or not, healthy gas lines are a plumber’s area of expertise. Before you fire up the grill or turn on your oven, make sure your gas lines are working properly! Damaged gas lines don’t just make it harder to barbeque, but, most importantly, they can be dangerous to your family and guests. Let’s ensure everything is in working order with a gas line repair, available from Baltimore to Washington, DC, to Northern Virginia.

Are Your Drains Up to the Task?

There’s no better time to schedule a professional drain cleaning service than right before the biggest holiday party! Your drains will see a lot of action in the upcoming weeks, from cooking an amazing meal to cleaning your house from top to bottom. A kitchen or bathroom sink that is draining slowly can cause you to fall behind on your 4th of July preparations. Contact Magnolia today to flush out all the nasty debris clogging your drains, so your Independence Day celebration goes off without a hitch.
