APPLIANCE RESTORATION EXPERTS
Appliances sure make life simpler and more comfortable. There’s hot water on demand. Machines that wash clothes for us. And a grinding and spinning device in the sink that saves on garbage bags. But, what happens when something goes wrong? The sink starts to smell, hot water isn’t so hot, and your washing machine is spilling water onto the floor.
That’s when to call your trusted Wright County area plumber. However, there are some plumbing situations that you may be able to take care of yourself. Here are a few:
- Garbage disposal: Bacteria growth is usually the culprit for odors emitting from the disposal. Simply grind up some citrus peels followed by pouring baking soda into the disposal. That usually takes care of the problem.
- Washing machine: A clogged or burst hose is often the problem for washing machine leaks. For clogs, remove the hose and flush it out with your garden hose. Also, check the lint filter in the hose for debris.
- Water heater: If your hot water heater is located in an unconditioned area of your home, it should be insulated as well as the hot water outlet pipe. Other reasons for intermittent hot water could include a faulty thermostat, sediment buildup, or a broken dip tube. These should be handled by your Monticello area plumber.
