Monday, June 28th, 2021

sunny-plumbersDo you ever wonder about everything that goes down your drain each day? Different types of grease and food particles get swept away when you are washing the dishes. Hair, soap, and all kinds of dirt also go down the drain and into your home’s plumbing when you are in the bathroom. When was the last time you cleaned the drain?
