Where Were You 21 Years Ago?

That is a cryptic beginning to an interesting memory.  If you were a home owner in the Fox Valley on July 18, 1996 I will bet that you will remember.  In the storm center, 35,000 homes experienced flood damage in a matter of hours as our area experienced a record seventeen inches of rain in 24 hours!

This is not to say that a weather episode of this magnitude will happen again anytime soon.  It IS to say, that this is the time of year when sudden, violent, intense rain storms are likely to hit the Northwest Suburbs.  Now, ask yourself…are you prepared?  Even four or five inches of rain overnight could result in a flooded basement.

Is your sump pump working properly?  Is the battery fully charged?  How about the back-up battery?  Before the next heavy rain hits…and it will (ask those home-owners who weren’t prepared in ’96).  Call Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444.  Have them come to your home and double-check all of the components that will keep you high and dry this summer.

It Sounds Like a Truck in Here.

This summer there is considerable hustle and bustle in your kitchen.  The kids are home and they are pouring heaven knows what into your kitchen’s garbage disposal.  The temptation is to just give up on your current garbage disposal unit when, in fact, many of them could be repaired, restoring peace and quiet to your kitchen.

One of the first things to look for if you are not hearing sounds would be a leak underneath your sink.  In many cases, the problem is not necessarily with the unit, but rather the way it was installed or the pipes leading to it.  So don’t just automatically blame Jimmy for throwing his cereal in there!

What is important is to troubleshoot the problem before it disrupts your entire home.  You need an expert plumber to do that.  In the Elgin area that company continues to be garbage disposal repair and replacement specialists Tom’s Plumbing Inc.  They know their way around kitchens and bathrooms in the Northwest Suburbs.  Keep this number handy (847) 697-6444.
