APR 2020


Annual preventive sewer maintenance is only one reason why we are so busy during the spring months. As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and we might as well add, “and plenty of sewer and drain problems too!” Rain is one of the many blessings we get during the spring as it amplifies the promise of new life and greenery. But too much of a good thing can cause problems, such as backups, leaks, or small floods. Many of the issues that come up during the rainy season can be prevented or caught early if you occasionally check your drains. And if you begin to notice things running slower than usual, give us a call right away before things get really backed up and messy. We can help you avoid backups and any other drainage problems that come your way this spring. This month, I hope everyone enjoys spring to the absolute fullest by welcoming the new season and staying dry.

around the house. While you’re in the middle of dusting, rearranging, and washing, keep in mind that this could be the perfect time for some house maintenance too, especially regarding your sewer and drains. For me and my team, these spring months are pretty busy. After a long winter, people want to make sure their sewer and drains are in working order. In the theme of spring-cleaning, take some time to check your drains for clogs, clear your gutters and downspouts of leaves and debris, and check your sump pumps.

The spring season brings feelings of new life and new beginnings into our lives. In fact, many cultures used to celebrate the start of the new year on April 1, when spring would take hold, until the Gregorian calendar was implemented throughout most of the world. And it’s not hard to see why. With buds appearing on trees, grass growing up through the ground, flowers blooming, and fresh breezes blowing, it’s easy to understand why celebrating the new year at this time made the most sense. Springtime inspires us to throw open our windows to let in a fresh breeze and take part in a bit of spring-cleaning
