Plumbing Tip of the Week:
Did you know a plunger will work better if it's warmed up? The better the seal around the exit-hole, the more success you'll have with the plunging action. A cold, stiff, hard plunger isn't as effective as a warm one. Run the plunger under some hot water before using it. 
For all your plumbing questions and concerns call your Local Rooter Man team, 

Scott & Laura Thompson,   owners of 
Rooter Man Savannah! 
Auto Tip of the Week:   
Stop! It's a powerful word and action- but if your brake pads are worn down- this could be a word not found in your car's vocabulary. Worn brake pads cannot only interfere with your halting power, but can wear down your vehicle's brake rotors, a much more expensive fix.
For all your 
Car Care Needs!

Mattress Tip of the Week:
A common misconception is that bed bugs are limited strictly to the bed. The unfortunate folks who accidentally bring a bed bug infestation into their homes may be tempted to dump the old mattress and bring a brand new one in. However, they need to realize the bed bugs and eggs are in the home- and by bringing in a new bed, it too will become quickly infested. Reach out to a pest control specialist to treat your entire home for bed bugs- before bringing a new bed in.

  Tip of the Week by Insurance Expert! 
Four things to "hoard" for emergencies:
Fuel: For Cooking, Driving or heating - important to have on hand, make sure stored properly. 
No Cook Foods: Mainly things that do not require  refrigeration  
Light Sources & Batteries: Flashlights with correct size batteries on hand especially. 
Water: So basic but there are times when clean water becomes as precious as gold.
