Did you know that your bathroom is statistically the most dangerous room in your home?

According to the AARP, bathrooms are the cause of more household injuries than any other room, including the kitchen.  In 2008, nearly 22 million Americans over the age of 15 were injured in the bathroom, and over 235,000 people were treated in emergency rooms for bathroom-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Not surprisingly, the total number of injuries increase by age, with the majority of injuries occurring with people over the age of 65.  However, proportionate to their age, 15-24 year olds are actually more likely to be injured in the tub or shower.

We've mentioned this topic on our social media pages a number of times in the past, but it's about time we "plunge" into it further and "flush" out any additional questions you might have. We are talking of course about the two different types of plungers you should have in your home.

Many people don't realize that there are two types for two different purposes. And unfortunately, home improvement stores confuse the matter my selling plungers that don't really do the job.

The first type of plunger is the one you are more likely familiar with. This is the one that looks like a suction cup with a handle sticking out of it. This type of plunger is designed for clearing a sink or tub. While these come in multiple sizes, many people mistakenly buy the larger versions thinking they are for toilets.

Plunger with no flange
This plunger, sold at Home Depot for $2.98, has no flange and is designed for sinks and tubs.
Plunger with Flange for ToiletsThis plunger, sold at Home Depot for $5.99, includes a flange which creates a positive seal inside a toilet drain.

I recently bought a rental property and M&M Plumbing came highly reocmmended by my realtor. This property had serious water damage and mold and repairs had been made. I wanted to be sure they were made right, so I called M&M and they were on site that afternoon. Mike and John cut open the bad sheetrock, located the problem (sheetrock screw through the copper pipe), cut out the bad section and told me how to install nail guards to prevent it from happening again. While they were there I had them replace a trip lever in the tub and de-clog the sink. Total time: about an hour. Very, very reasonably priced. Prompt, Got the job done fast. Highest recommendation.
