5 Ways to Avoid Clogging Your Drain

Clogged drains can be a real pain! Here are some handy tips to avoid them!
  1. Use a drain screen -
    Hair and soap scum play major roles in clogging your bath and shower drains. Use a drain screen to catch the debris and clean the screen regularly to avoid clogs.
  2. Don't pour grease down the drain -
    When you finish cooking, pour the grease into a glass jar or other container and let the grease harden and scoop out as much as you can into the garbage. If you pour grease down the drain it will harden in your pipes and cause damage that can cost you money!
  3. Don't pour chemicals down the drain -
    Avoid putting any other chemicals down the drain. Even in a laundry room sink, you risk clogging or eroding your pipes so if you must, do so sparingly.
  4. Clean your sink stoppers -
    Pop-up stoppers can accumulate build-up and should be cleaned regularly.
  5. Pour boiling water down the drain -
    Pour boiling water down your drains once a week. Make this a regular part of your cleaning routine to clear the pipes of any scum and build-up.
