“Veteran Austrian television personality Klaus Emmerich has triggered a storm of criticism for his racist comments about Barack Obama, the US president-elect,” reports Der Spiegel.
If enough water sets for an extended period of time, mold may grow, which will cause your family to have to move out while the infestation is removed. You will want a drain cleaning or contractor to inspect any water stains you see on your walls or ceiling.
When choosing who to help you with a home improvement project you will need to figure out what type of help you need. A tradesperson can help with specific upgrades like replacing a furnace or moving ductwork. A specialty contractor can work on your kitchen or your bathroom, but typically not both. A renovator or general contractor can cover more than one project at one time.
Avoid hiring an architect for minor home improvements and small renovations. Check your local building codes; in most areas architects are unnecessary for jobs below a certain size. Working with a competent contractor on these small-scale projects makes an architect unnecessary. When an architect is unnecessary and not required by local ordinances, save yourself some money by working without one.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly and put it in a covered jar. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture through the drain followed by 1 cup boiling water. Flush with cold water after ten seconds. Do this procedure once a week to keep your drain odorless and clog-free.
To lessen the grease on your drain, pour half cup of salt and half cup of baking soda. Pour a kettle of boiling water and allow it to settle overnight.
You can find hemostats online for as little as $2! They come in many sizes. Some have a curved tip, but I recommend sticking with the straight end since you’ll be going straight down your drain. They look like scissors but they clamp down like heavy-duty tweezers. They’re basically big tweezers that clamp down and stay clamped. You can even use them in any sink drain where you think the clogging is pretty close to the surface. At least this is something you can do yourself before you call a plumber. $2 is a lot less than what you’d pay a plumber to come and unclog your drain!
