As you know, keeping a house in good condition requires regular maintenance. This page is intended to answer any questions you may have on a daily basis.

How do I maintain my tumble dryer? My sink is blocked? What should I do?

How can you proceed?

  • Clean the trap: you must place a container under the pipes, then unscrew the trap and clean it. Screw the trap back on, making sure that the seals are correctly fitted to avoid possible leak.
  • If the problem persists, add bicarbonate and withe vinegar, wait 30 minutes and pour in hot water
  • If you have already used the 2 previous steps and the problem is not solved, please make a ticket

How to avoid this problem?

  • Avoid putting hair and beard hair in the sink and keep it clean
