As families prepare holiday meals this week, some will make mistakes that could be costly not only for them, but also the city they’re living in.

Every year, President of Mann Plumbing in Bloomington David Mann said he gets some panicked calls the week of Thanksgiving.

With so much cooking going on, some things make their way into the sink that shouldn’t.

“Sometimes the kitchen drains get overloaded especially,” Mann said. “Garbage disposals get overburdened and then they can’t go ahead and grind and drain what is put down through there.”
