Plumbers Drain Cleaning FAQS

As Goose Creek's top choice for plumbing services since 1978, we've learned a thing or two about drain cleaning over the years. To keep yourself educated and up-to-date, here are answers to some of the most common questions we're asked:

Q:How many times per year should I have my drains cleared?

A:That all depends on what's going down your drains and how often they're used. If you have a large family, leftover grease from food and hair from showers will cause clogs quickly. In this scenario, you should clear your drains often. If you live alone and don't use your kitchen or laundry drains often, you shouldn't have to clear them as frequently as a large family.

Q:More than one of my drains is moving slowly. What's happening?

A:When two or more drains are moving slowly, you may have a main sewer line problem. These clogs are often caused by wet wipes, tree roots, and kitchen grease.

Q:How do you clean clogged drains?

A:That depends on the type of drain that's clogged. You can clean sink drains with simple household items like vinegar and baking soda. Other drains, like bathtub drains, are best cleaned with a zip stick to remove hairballs. If you're unsure how to clean a clogged drain, it's always best to rely on professional plumbers like Delk Plumbing. Don't make the situation worse than it already is!

GOOSE CREEK — A historic property in the Charleston suburbs soon could be transformed into a new housing development.

Beazer Homes paid $4 million on Dec. 19 for the 37.5-acre parcel that once housed the Oaks Plantation Golf & Country Club off Red Bank Road. The previous owner was Mims Amusement Operating Co., which held the site for more than 50 years.

The homebuilder’s spokeswoman did not have updated information to share on Dec. 20 on a construction time frame, but the Atlanta-based company plans to develop the site into 89 single-family housing lots, according to plans presented to Goose Creek officials. The city annexed the land in 2021.

The country club building, which suffered a devastating fire in 2008, was demolished in 2020, a year after the longtime private facility closed at the end of The Oaks Avenue.

The Oaks Plantation Golf & Country Club dates to the founding of the country. It was the site of Declaration of Independence signer Arthur Middleton’s 18th-century rice farm, which was established by a land grant in 1678.

The former yellow-colored Oaks Plantation house was built in 1892 for Maine businessman Edwin Parsons, whose family also once owned Woodlands Mansion in Summerville.

In 1956, the Oaks Co. Inc. paid $125,000 for the plantation house and the 140 acres of land surrounding the home.

It became the Oaks Plantation Golf & Country Club after Harold Mims, the owner of a now-defunct, coin-operated amusement business, bought the property in 1964. The main home was used for weddings and other events until the fire heavily damaged the site 14 years ago.

The plantation home, grounds and golf course shut their doors to the public in March 2019. The property’s land use allows single-family homes.

A Beazer Homes representative previously said the company was drawn to the property because of its close proximity to “commuting corridors” and the mature trees and ponds that make up the former club.

Home sales across every housing market in South Carolina plummeted by double digits in November as higher mortgage interest rates and escalating prices pushed would-be buyers out of the market.

The decline marks the 12th consecutive month for lower housing transactions across the Palmetto State.

Residential sales plunged more than 28 percent last month compared to November 2021, according to data from the S.C. Realtors Association.

In November, 7,029 homes changed hands at a median price of $320,000, up nearly $35,000, or 12.1 percent, from a year earlier. The median price is also down $9,000 from the record set across the state in June of $329,000.

So far this year through November, 99,679 residences have sold across the state at a median price of $315,000. Volume is down 10.9 percent while the price is up 16.7 percent compared to the first 11 months of last year.

For comparison, from January through October 2019, 91,309 homes sold at a median price of $218,000.

The outgoing president of the state Realtors group said the pace of sales is stabilizing to pre-pandemic conditions, but prices remain elevated because of low inventory, higher borrowing costs and overall inflation.

Looking ahead, Cindy Creamer, an agent with Dunes Real Estate on Hilton Head Island, said, “Higher interest rates will have more of an impact now” and “it’s going to be tough” for first-time homebuyers.

On a bright note, she cited a report from the National Association of Realtors that said Charleston and the Greenville/Spartanburg area are among the top places in the U.S. that are poised for continued housing growth in 2023.

“I think we will be holding our own in South Carolina next year,” she said.

From the coast to the mountains, home sales were off 18.5 percent to more than 46 percent as no market was immune to the decline in transactions.

Charleston, the state’s largest market by volume, posted a 33 percent drop in closings. Myrtle Beach, the second-largest market in terms of sales, slipped nearly 37 percent. Columbia saw a decline of almost 27 percent while Greenville was down 18.5 percent.

Hilton Head slid 35 percent while Rock Hill dipped 21 percent.

Pricewise, every metropolitan area in South Carolina posted increases from nearly 6.5 percent to almost 12 percent. Myrtle Beach saw a 19 percent spike over the same month a year ago. While sales were down in October, the median price came in higher at all major markets in the state.

As for rising prices, which continue to put homes out of reach for many would-be buyers, Creamer said sellers “need to get a little more realistic” with the market.

“Overall, prices may readjust another 10 percent, but I don’t think they will be drastically cut,” Creamer said.

Hilton Head Island continued to lead the state with the highest median price of $499,480. Rock Hill, in the growing suburbs of Charlotte, ranked second at $400,000 and surpassed Charleston, which dropped to third highest at $394,900.

Beaufort came in at $370,000, Myrtle Beach at $318,930 and Greenville at $303,240.

Several areas reported median prices between $250,000 and $300,000, including Aiken, Anderson, Columbia, North Augusta and Spartanburg. Those below $250,000 were regional offices in Florence, Gaffney, Greenwood and Sumter.

Along with elevated home prices is the higher cost of borrowing, though mortgage interest rates have fallen in recent weeks.

Home loan financier Freddie Mac reported Dec. 22 the average rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage edged down to 6.27 percent. The average rate on a 15-year note, popular for refinancing homes, rose slightly to 5.69 percent. Both rates were near or below 3.0 percent at this time last year.

“Rates have declined significantly over the past six weeks, which is helpful for potential homebuyers, but new data indicates homeowners are hesitant to list their homes,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist.

“Many of those homeowners are carefully weighing their options as more than two-thirds of current homeowners have a fixed mortgage rate of below 4 percent,” he added.

Charleston leaders look back on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Even though Jan. 16 is the official Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day, his leadership is celebrated everyday because of how he shaped American history.MLK had a dream that everyone should be treated equally despite the color of their skin.“People think it’s just a day off...

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Even though Jan. 16 is the official Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day, his leadership is celebrated everyday because of how he shaped American history.

MLK had a dream that everyone should be treated equally despite the color of their skin.

“People think it’s just a day off from work and from school, but it’s a very important day for our rights and it’s not just for us, it’s for everyone," said Shirley Blue, treasurer of the Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP.

Many strides have been made to achieve the dream of the civil rights leader who paved the way for so many. Local leaders continue to carry out his dream.

“I think the best way to commemorate his legacy is to have kindness and empathy towards people, because ultimately that’s what he wanted us to do, and so we definitely look at is a year long and life long mission to remember to judge people by the content of their character and not the color of the skin," said Sharina Haynes, the president of the Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP.

The Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP is celebrating his legacy through service.

“One of his quotes, kind of paraphrasing, is 'everyone can’t do everything but everyone can do something, and everyone can serve,'" Haynes said.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made history by leading important moments like the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1956 and the Selma to Montgomery March in 1965, but local leaders said there is always more work to be done.

“Our theme this year is do the work. This is 51 years of YWCA honoring and paying tribute to Dr. King and we are still talking about bringing the dream to reality," said LaVanda Brown, the executive director of YWCA Greater Charleston.

Brown believes Charleston is the best place to honor his legacy.

“If there’s any place that can show the world how to make a difference, how to make a change, Charleston is that place, and we should be that place, because there’s a lot of things that started here, why not equity start here as well," Brown said.

The hope is more people will get to work to help continue living out his dream.

“I hope that they think about being of service to others whether or not it’s Jan. 16 or any other day of the year, just how can you serve, how can you make your community and this world a better place," Haynes said.

The Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP is inviting the public to join their day of service on Monday from 9 a.m. to noon at Granny's Laundromat in Goose Creek.

The annual MLK Day Parade downtown is also on Monday. It will start in front of Burke High School at 10:30 a.m.

For Citadel alums, hiring of Maurice Drayton is bigger than football

As Maurice Drayton sat Wednesday night in the Seignious Hall office that belongs to the head football coach of The Citadel, he pondered the idea of change.Drayton, 46 and introduced as the Bulldogs’ 25th coach on Thursday, has encountered plenty of change in his own career, from coaching at Goose Creek School to Finland, Canada, Coastal Carolina, South Carolina State and Southern Miss all the way to the NFL’s Colts, Packers and Raiders.“I told our team when we met that change is inevitable, and that fear is ok...

As Maurice Drayton sat Wednesday night in the Seignious Hall office that belongs to the head football coach of The Citadel, he pondered the idea of change.

Drayton, 46 and introduced as the Bulldogs’ 25th coach on Thursday, has encountered plenty of change in his own career, from coaching at Goose Creek School to Finland, Canada, Coastal Carolina, South Carolina State and Southern Miss all the way to the NFL’s Colts, Packers and Raiders.

“I told our team when we met that change is inevitable, and that fear is okay,” Drayton told the large crowd of family and friends, former classmates and teammates and Citadel supporters that turned out at Johnson Hagood Stadium. “What is fear? Fear is a little evil from within, and we must learn to face and control it.”

Thursday was a day of change for The Citadel, as well, as the military school that was founded before the Civil War in 1842 hired the first Black male head coach in its athletics history.

Drayton is the first Black coach in any of the school’s major sports of football, basketball and baseball, and the second Black head coach in the school’s history (Wendy Anderson coached volleyball from 2002-2007). He’s also the first Black head football coach at a current Southern Conference school.

That history was not lost on Drayton, a 1998 Citadel graduate who was defensive coordinator for The Citadel’s SoCon championship team in 2015. He spoke Thursday with Norman Seabrooks, a 1973 graduate who was the first Black football player at The Citadel.

“He had a few words for me, advice that I’ll keep to myself,” Drayton said. “But I know this means a lot to the community, it really does.”

Citadel alums who were on hand Thursday agreed.

“This is probably the greatest event that’s happened to The Citadel in the past 50 or 60 years,” said Kingstree High School football coach Brian Smith, a 2001 graduate of The Citadel and former teammate of Drayton’s. “It shows we’re making progress. It shows that, contrary to stuff people say about the school, that we can progress forward, create a new era, a new image and a new plan.

“It’s huge for us, especially young alumni who have felt in the past that maybe our voices were not heard, or that the school was never going to change.”

Scooter Johnson (Class of 2003) played for Drayton when the new coach was a graduate assistant.

“January 9th in 1861 was the second Thursday of the year, when The Citadel fired the first shots at the Star of the West (to start the Civil War),” Johnson said. “And here we are on the second Thursday in 2023. To understand the history of this institution, a day like today speaks volumes about where we are.

“I mean, look at this room. There are a lot of different people here, and they are all here to celebrate a man who was more than qualified for this position, not only today but I would argue twice in the past. It says a lot about where we are as a school.”

Travis Stephens, an All-America linebacker and Citadel Hall of Famer, serves on the board of directors for The Citadel Brigadier Foundation.

“It signals that actions aligned with words are powerful,” Stephens said. “Maurice Drayton is not the coach at The Citadel because he happens to be Black, but because he’s the most qualified candidate. And both those things can be true, right? We can have talented minority candidates who are absolutely the right fit. This is a big moment for the school.”

Morris Robinson, a 1991 graduate who was an all-SoCon lineman and now a world-renowned opera star, flew from Miami to Atlanta and then drove to Charleston on Thursday just to be here for Drayton.

“The Citadel throughout its history, and even to a (Post and Courier) article that came out yesterday, has been fighting an image that has been rightfully earned in some degree,” he said. “Today is a another step in the right direction that shows the school is making efforts to right the ship that has not been righted before.

“There was no better, no more logical hire than the one they made. It’s perfect.”

Goose Creek’s new barrier-free Central Creek Park is tentatively scheduled for a Dec. 16 public opening, according to local public information officer Frank Johnson.

The new $9 million park site will consist of a 13-acre, all-abilities outdoor recreation facility that is reportedly benefitting from the generosity of community-based donors.

These monetary contributions, it was noted, will help pay for some of the innovative equipment and featured for the open space, located at 147 Old Moncks Corner Road.

“We launched our We All Rise capital campaign late last year and have been pleasantly surprised and extremely grateful for the outpouring of financial support,” said Mayor Gregory Habib. “This giving level speaks volumes about our community’s commitment to ensuring inclusivity.”

The barrier-free components of Central Creek Park will serve visitors of all ages and abilities and they include: Debra’s Playground, Splash Creek, a field, stage area, a walking trail, the Eubanks Athletic Courts and the Casey Pavilion, sponsored by Roper St. Francis Healthcare.

“I hope the Roper St. Francis Casey Pavilion will be a place for residents of all ages to gather for health, wellness, fitness, and fellowship,” said Roper President & CEO Dr. Jeffrey DiLisi. “We are proud to be a part of this growing and vibrant community, both by supporting spaces, such as this, as well as providing exceptional care at sites across the county. We hope this special Pavilion serves the community for decades to come, and we look forward to continuing to partner with and care for Goose Creek.”

Jeff Lewis Architect, Trident Construction, The LandPlan Group South, Carolina Parks & Play, Landscape Structures and Rain Drop have all been commissioned by the City of Goose Creek to assure residents that the park will operate as a safe and friendly venue for all community members.

The aforementioned companies have produced and approved designs to facilitate wheelchair access across multiple areas of the park, along with swings, a zipline and several Splash Creek water-play features, such as: Mr. Claw Crab, the Pirate Cannon and the Big Kahuna Wave.

Park, play and exercise structures and/or amenities have been built to accommodate people of varying sizes, postures and mobility ranges in the interest of providing the highest of physical challenges while keeping hazards at a minimum.

It’s a sentiment that Goose Creek Recreation Director Crystal Reed wholeheartedly endorses.

“Central Creek Park is a testament to how important a universal-access culture is to the citizens of Goose Creek,” she said. “Our community stepped up in a big way to help create a world-class outdoor recreation space for everyone, regardless of age or ability.“

Project partner/supporter and CEO-President of Goose Creek Heating & Air Robbie Wright added: “We are honored and delighted to support such a game-changing community centerpiece as Central Creek Park. [It’s] a welcome addition to an already vibrant culture, the park will make fitness, play, awareness, and exposure to new opportunities accessible to all. Goose Creek Heating and Air is proud to play a small part in this extraordinary endeavor.”

The recreation destination’s footprint will be able to handle more than 600 individuals at a time and ensures that no one is excluded from the joys derived from outdoor play, promises Goose Creek Assistant Recreation Director Nicole Herrera Murray.

On that note, Murray believes that the new park will emerge as “the heartbeat of our community.”

Private donations made to the park were in excess of $1.3 million, which comprised leadership gifts, naming opportunities and a long list of Friends of the Park.

Notable gifts include:

• Casey Pavilion, Made Possible by Roper St. Francis Healthcare

• Early Childhood Playground, Made Possible by Berkeley County

• School-Age Playground, Made Possible by Boeing

• Splash Creek, Made Possible by Berkeley County

• Park Office, Made Possible by Goose Creek Heating & Air

• Field & Stage, Made Possible by Home Telecom

• Walking Trail, Made Possible by Berkeley Electric Cooperative & Trident Construction

• Community Trail, Made Possible by Mungo Homes

• Eubanks Athletic Courts, Made Possible by Goose Creek Recreation Commission

There is still time to support the park with a general donation or sponsor a Tribute Bench in honor or memory of someone special. A gift of $1,500 reserves the right to honor or memorialize an individual, group, or organization with an inscribed plaque that will be placed on a park bench.
