Auto Tip of the Week:   
Proper wheel alignment plays an important role. It affects fuel efficiency, tire wear, tire performance, maneuverability and vehicle handling. Tires and wheels can become easily misaligned due to road conditions, minor accidents, big bumps, and driving habits. Car service technicians can direct you on whether or not your vehicle needs aligned.

For all your 
Car Care Needs!

Plumbing Tip of the Week:

We've all seen signs on the back of the bathroom doors asking us to not flush certain items down the toilet. However, there are some items that are just as damaging to your plumbing that many people don't think of. Flushing dental floss, kitty litter, cigarette butts, and chewing gum should be avoided. Your pipes will thank you!

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

Scott & Laura Thompson,   owners of 
Rooter Man Savannah! 
Rooter Man is always to the rescue when a plumbing problem comes up!! 
Give them a call!! 

Mattress Tip of the Week:
Despite mattress pads, mattresses could still stand to be periodically cleaned. Start off with vacuuming, then stain treating using the recommended solutions based on the type of stain. Deodorize the mattress by sprinkling baking soda.
