Entertaining guests is always an exhausting job. Here are a handful of tips to keep your household running smoothly.
Cover the Drains – More people living in the house means more showers, more showers means more hair and debris being washed down your drains. Using strainers on your drain can help save your drains during this period of time. Home made drain clear solutions of vinegar and baking soda also work as an easy solution for dissolving minor blockages created by hair and soap scum. A more serious blockage may need to be attended to by a qualified plumber.
Rubbish Bins Everywhere – Give guests somewhere easy to put their rubbish instead of having to resort to flushing it down the toilet.
Be Ready For Anything – Keep a plunger handy! And a plumbers number handy in case of an emergency. A plumbing problem can get messy very quickly and having guests around to experience it will lead to very unpleasant stay.
Clean Your Shower Heads – Keep the shower flowing! Having guests around will already be putting pressure on the hot water capacity, so help your guests take shorter showers by keeping the showerheads clean. Soaking in vinegar overnight should help keep it clean.
Upgrade the Hot Water System – A 50 gallon tank will provide 20min of continuous hot water. Depending on how many guests you have staying, this may not go very far. If you are considering an upgrade, now is the time to do it!
