Roto-Rooter, North America’s Largest Provider of Plumbing and Drain Repair Services, is Ready to Clear Post-Thanksgiving Sink, Toilet, and Sewer Clogs on “Brown Friday”

Turkey scraps and grease can quickly clog kitchen sinks, while hosting a house full of people for a feast often leads to clogged toilets and backed-up sewer lines.

As families prepare for Thanksgiving celebrations across the country, Roto-Rooter, North America’s largest provider of plumbing and drain repair services, is also hard at work getting ready for the holiday’s aftermath. Historically, the day after Thanksgiving, aptly known as “Brown Friday,” is the busiest day of the year for Roto-Rooter plumbers.

“If your household experiences plumbing issues following the Thanksgiving holiday, you’re certainly not alone,” explains Paul Abrams, Director of Public Relations. “Turkey scraps and grease can quickly clog kitchen sinks, while hosting a house full of people for a feast often leads to clogged toilets and backed-up sewer lines.”

On Brown Friday, Roto-Rooter typically sees a 50% increase in call volume over an average Friday. It also experiences a 21% uptick in business over any other four-day weekend period. A humorous new commercial for Roto-Rooter demonstrates how their workforce will be ready and available to meet customer demand.

It is always best to get ahead of potential plumbing issues before they become ill-timed, costly problems. Roto-Rooter provides a number of helpful tips on how to avoid Thanksgiving clogs. These tips include not pouring fats and cooking oils down drains, minding what you put in your garbage disposal and when you run it, having houseguests wait ten minutes between showers, and professionally addressing pre-existing plumbing problems before the holidays.
