It’s sticky, gooey and can make chills run down your spine!! No I’m not talking about Slimer from the movie Ghostbusters,  I’m talking about all those pumpkin seeds and pumpkin guts you’re about to throw down your drain! Ahhh!!!! As Halloween season rolls around pumpkin carving becomes a very popular family activity in households throughout America.  However, did you know that pumpkin seeds and pumpkin goo can actually cause major havoc in your plumbing system? All those sticky seeds and gooey inner grinds become hard like cement when dry and will stick to your pipes causing scary backups in the future.  Instead, we advise collecting the seeds and setting them outside for the birds or even roasting them for a healthy tasty treat and throw the other pumpkin remains in the trash.  Either way, never toss your pumpkin seeds and guts down the drain, the garbage disposal or even down the toilet!  Otherwise, that plumbing bill might just make you scream in horror!!!
