Toilet clogs are relatively easy to resolve. If you don't already own a plunger, you'll need to purchase one from a local hardware store. Most large supermarkets and big-box retailers also sell these items.
Press the plunger into place over the drain of the toilet and move it up and down vigorously to dislodge anything in the pipes. Repeat this until the toilet drains on its own. Do not flush the toilet to try to resolve the clog; this could create a flood.
If your sink, bathtub, or shower isn't draining properly, check that the drain is clear of all debris. Some small clogs in the pipeline can be flushed out using hot water. Simply pour boiling water down the drain.
Please refrain from using chemicals to clean your drains, as these could damage the system.
If you lose electrical power in your rental home, call your utility provider for assistance. There may be widespread outages in your neighborhood or a billing problem with your account could be the root cause of the issue.
If you run out of hot water or don't have any at all, you need to locate your heating tank and check the settings. Most hot water heaters have a vacation mode that limits water access; verify that yours isn't in this mode. You can also change the settings to see if you can resolve the issue, but wait 15 to 20 minutes before you test the temperature again after making any updates.
If your heat or air conditioning isn't working properly, locate the central thermostat in your home. Verify that all settings are accurate and check whether the system has power. If you're unable to resolve the issue, please contact us.
