Record Warm Christmas Weather!

No White Christmas For Us This Year! Turn Up The A/C, It's In The 70's!
On this Christmas Eve, Northern Virginia, DC. and Maryland are experiencing record warm temperatures. Although the warm weather is said to be related to normal weather patterns, it won't last long. Still, for now, we'll be experiencing weather that feels a bit more like Easter than Christmas! 

As you enjoy, or lament the warmth, be sure to keep an eye out for flooding. With rain in the forecast, it's important to be sure your sump pump is functioning properly. It might be a good idea to get a water alarm installed--have your bases covered for when guests arrive in town tonight!

How Can I Benefit from a Taze Plunger?

When most homeowners picture a plunger, they imagine a wooden stick with a red suction cup at the end. While it’s true that this classic image is indeed a common type of plunger, there are actually several different plunger designs in use today. The best type of plunger for the job depends on the type of clog affecting the pipe, as well as the size of the drainpipe suffering from the blockage. A taze plunger, often called a “plumber’s plunger,” is a powerful tool that many homeowners have never seen, but is appropriate in certain situations to clear out very stubborn clogs. While you can purchase a taze plunger for your home, you will want to talk to your Fairfax plumber about how and when it’s appropriate to use a taze plunger to clear your plumbing.
