KEEP YOUR PLUMBING CLEAN THIS HALLOWEEN
(SAVANNAH, GA) As Halloween approaches, plumbing is likely the last thing on your mind, but fall festivities are in full swing and it’s easy to have a family-fun activity turn into a nightmare.

The pulp from inside the pumpkin will create a nice sticky clog in your drains. It can also harden over time and cause multiple other issues, including garbage disposal issues. If you do need a plumber, Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah will have you covered: https://rotosavannah.com/.
