Auto Tip of the Week:   
When it comes to car care many people overlook their headlights. Headlights are one of the first lines of defense. They shed light on potential problems at night and give us extra reaction time. Replace headlights before they burn out. If you can't remember the last time you replaced them- it's probably time. Be sure to replace your headlights in pairs. An old bulb paired with a new one can create an uneven vision field.
For all your 
Car Care Needs!

Mattress Tip of the Week:
Sleeping on the wrong mattress can lead to or worsen back pain.  When choosing a mattress keep these things in mind: If you're a back sleeper, choose a mattress firm enough to support your lower back yet soft enough to contour to your body. For side sleepers, choose a mattress with slight softness to comfort shoulders and hips. Stomach sleepers need a firm mattress.

Plumbing Tip of the Week:
There are a couple things you can do to prevent clogged pipes in your home. One of the most common causes of clogged pipes is hair. If you have a Rapunzel or rapidly balding person in your home-protect your pipes with a drain strainer or hair screen. So called "flushable" baby wipes don't break down the way toilet paper does and can cause major clogs in pipes. 

For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team,
