Thanksgiving Serves up Big Business for Plumbers and Drain Cleaners
“Brown Friday” is Busiest Day of the Year for Roto-Rooter

(November 15, 2017)—The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year for plumbing and drain companies. Big meal preparation and kitchen cleanup create “the perfect storm” for plumbers who stay busy unclogging kitchen sinks, garbage disposals and toilets. Retailers call it Black Friday, but Roto-Rooter plumbers call it “Brown Friday” because of the sewage they are called upon to deal with.

Roto-Rooter, the world’s largest provider of plumbing repair and drain services, says “Brown Friday” is its busiest day of the year. Their customer calls increase by 50% over an average Friday and they see a 21% uptick in business over any other four-day weekend period during the year. “Holiday guests put a strain on the plumbing system because toilets are flushed more often and extra showers are taken. It all puts a strain on a home’s sewer and drain systems,” said Paul Abrams, spokesman for Roto-Rooter. “When the kitchen gets busy and the disposal starts receiving peelings, rice and oily turkey drippings, things can clog up fast,” he added.

Roto-Rooter will be fully staffed on Friday to deal with extra service calls. Virtually every Roto-Rooter service technician will be working on “Brown Friday,” saving customers from long waits.

To avoid a visit from the plumber over Thanksgiving weekend, follow these tips:

• Don’t pour fats or cooking oils down drains. They solidify in pipes and choke drains.
• Never put stringy, fibrous or starchy waste down the garbage disposal. Disposals can handle most scraps in small quantities but it’s best to toss food waste into the trash can.
• Make sure the disposal is running when you feed it food scraps.
• Don’t flush wet wipes down toilets. They won’t dissolve and will cause clogs.
• Place a plunger in guest bathrooms to save your guests the embarrassment of asking for one.

Northern Ohio Social Security Disability Law Firm Offers Video Teleconferencing

Roose & Ressler Provides Clients Convenient Video Hearings in Their Lorain, Wooster Offices

 

Lorain, OH – November 2, 2017 – The need to travel to downtown Cleveland or downtown Akron for a Social Security Disability hearing may be a thing of past. Social Security disability law firm Roose & Ressler offers state of the art video teleconferencing at its offices in Lorain and Wooster, bringing hearings and reviews much closer and much more convenient for residents of Lorain and Wayne Counties, as well as residents of those surrounding areas.

 

“We pride ourselves on being a very personal and also a very local law firm, and accessibility is a big issue for us,” Roose & Ressler attorney Jon Ressler says. “This technology gives our clients the option to appear for their hearing at our nearby local offices instead of traveling a much more significant distance to appear at the Offices of Disability Adjudication and Review in either Cleveland or Akron. This saves our clients time and money, and they’re able to have their hearing in familiar surroundings with attorneys that care about their claim.”

 

Ressler further explained that often times, claimants have difficulty finding the unfamiliar location of a hearing downtown, and that many are not able to drive themselves, further exacerbating the burden on families. With the Social Security approved, attorney-owned video teleconferencing, Roose & Ressler clients have easy, close and free parking at the familiar attorney offices.

 

“It’s just another advantage of having that personal touch, from a local attorney,” Ressler added.

 

About Roose & Ressler

 

Founded in 1982 and serving claimants throughout Northern Ohio from their offices in Lorain, Toledo, Wooster and Mansfield, Roose & Ressler is a social security disability law firm. The attorneys work with Northern Ohioans who need assistance with a social security disability claim or those who have been denied their claim. More information can be accessed at www.RooseLaw.com.

Don’t Let Halloween Frighten Your Plumbing

(October 24, 2017) — Cincinnati, OH – Every year it happens, starting about a week before Halloween. Sticky pumpkin pulp and seeds from jack-o-lantern projects clogs America’s garbage disposals and kitchen sink drains. In some cases, costing homeowners hundreds of dollars to fix. Roto-Rooter, the nation’s largest provider of plumbing repair and drain cleaning services, dispatches its plumbers to help frantic customers remedy the problems.

Roto-Rooter reminds carvers that pumpkin guts should never be put down drains or into garbage disposals. “It’s slimy and sticky and dries into a hard crust that creates some of the most challenging clogs we see,” said Paul Abrams, spokesman for the Cincinnati-based company. “Plungers and liquid drain cleaning chemicals are usually ineffective on severe pumpkin pulp clogs,” he added.”

 

To prevent Halloween-related drain disasters, Roto-Rooter warns against carving pumpkins in or near the sink. Instead, pumpkins should be placed on a bed of newspaper so carvers can easily wrap up the mess and throw it into a garbage can or compost pile. And rinsing the pulp off your hands over the kitchen sink is also a bad idea. Roto-Rooter recommends using the outside faucet instead.

 

But the news isn’t all bad, pumpkin seeds can be separated and roasted for a tasty treat. Or they can be air-dried and planted to grow next year’s Halloween pumpkins.

 

Roto-Rooter was established in 1935 and provides plumbing and water cleanup services throughout the U.S. and Canada. For more information, watch our helpful Halloween videos at www.RotoRooter.com
