Ever wonder where the stuff you flush down the toilet goes? No? Well, fair enough… flush it and say goodbye! Unfortunately, many of us do have to think about it. Nearly half of all Americans live in a house with a septic tank. We won’t go into details, but this is the place where all your “wastewater” (okay, it’s sewage) goes. We all flush and forget, but your septic tank needs ordinary maintenance.
The end of the winter season is the time of year when handyman services are really useful. Once everything starts to thaw, we’re already thinking about the summer months. This is why the second half of winter is when lots of people decide to install decks. If you’ve already got a deck, this is the time when you’ll want to fix it up with any needed repairs. You’ll want to get it ready for all the barbecues and nice spring evenings.

If you just clean the drain a week ago and is again running slow, you probably have a problem. Residues, which were built over time, it is often difficult to remove a single treatment. Professional plumbers have the skills and equipment necessary to remove even the toughest build-up.
I am sure the handicap ramp and bathroom are just the start of many age in place remodels that will have to be done as my parents age. Hopefully for us, their children, they will continue to be mobile enough to get around unassisted and still have the zest they have now. It is funny because their bodies have definitely aged but I still see their minds working as if they were in their forties. They still give me a run for my money playing Euchre and Scrabble.
