Is Your Plumbing Ready for the Holiday Challenge?

Sink Full of Dishes - Armstrong
We can see it and smell it now. Holiday cooking and baking. It’s that time of the year when we allow ourselves to indulge. You know, lots of butter, oils, cream, and other fat-heavy foods. Sure, they are bad for our waistline, but you know what else they are bad for? Your garbage disposal and drains. Often times, too much of those fats and oils end up going down the drain. If your pipes have an even normal amount of dirt, grease, and hair already in them, the extra burden can quickly cause problems.

A clogged drain the night before, or even just hours before the big dinner could be a disaster. Yes, Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric offers 24/7 emergency plumbing service in Lubbock, but don’t let it come to that. Call us right now because we are experts in the field of drain cleaning in Lubbock with a full list of services:

  • Same day drain and sewer cleaning
  • Video inspection of drain and sewer lines
  • Garbage disposals
  • Bathroom sink and tub drains
  • 24/7 emergency plumbing service
  • Clogged toilets
  • Kitchen sink drains
  • Slow drains/standing water
  • Main sewer line cleaning

After we check for problems and fix any issues we find, our Armstrong plumbers can then treat your drains and pipes with the environmentally friendly drain cleaning product Bio-CleanⓇ. It uses bacteria to attack organic waste by changing the waste material into harmless water, carbon dioxide, and mineral ash which flow out of the system. Bio-CleanⓇ creates no heat or fumes, and the bacteria can start working within an hour after pouring it into the drain. In addition, it is safe and effective for use in septic systems. Armstrong recommends using it as part of regular septic maintenance.

Types of Water Heaters - Armstrong
The holidays will also stress your water
heater. Having several extra people in the house means multiple extra showers, extra loads of laundry, and seemingly endless loads of dirty dishes. The end result could be loud muttering, dare we say screams, coming from the bathroom when a shower suddenly turns cold. When was the last time you had your water heater inspected? Are you sure it’s up to the challenge? Armstrong’s licensed plumbers will check for faulty and worn out parts and corrosion. We service all major brands of hot water heaters.

If it’s time for a replacement, talk with Armstrong about adding a new tankless hot water system. It will eliminate any risk of cold showers with a virtually unlimited supply of hot water. It’s also more efficient. Instead of keeping an entire tank of water hot all the time, a tankless system heats the water as you need it. Armstrong features tankless water heaters by Navian.

Armstrong knows how easy it is for plumbing problems to sneak up on homeowners. Water and drainage systems are often ignored because they are out of sight and out of mind. Don’t take a chance on unexpected plumbing emergencies ruining your holiday gathering. Call in the experts from Armstrong Plumbing, Air & Electric to keep your holiday gathering focused on spending time with family and friends.
