Nobody enjoys sitting in traffic. Everyone has places to go and people to see. Yet, you are trapped. Clogged drains are like plumbing traffic jams. They support everything and, if left unchecked, may cause havoc on your pipes. The last thing you want is a clogged drain in the middle of summer. Since heat intensifies odours, a somewhat foul-smelling drain in the winter becomes a rotten drain in the summer. This month, we’ll discuss the many methods for preventing clogged drains at home. You may treat your drains similarly to how UV light filtering systems keep your air feeling fresh and clean. You can maintain your plumbing operating smoothly for as long as possible by being careful of what should and should not go down the Clogged drain.
Here is what you should and shouldn’t do
Food, coffee grinds, and grease should not be poured down the kitchen sink. Make certain that food is properly disposed of in the garbage or through the garbage disposal. A Clogged drain strainer should be installed in your kitchen sink to prevent undesired things from falling down the drain. Grease should never be poured down the drain because it might stick to the inside of your pipes and cause blockages after it cools. Once the grease has cooled, pour it into a sealable container and dispose of it in the garbage.
In the shower, use a hair catcher to keep hair from falling down the drain. One of the most common reasons of drain obstructions is hair. Removing a big amount of hair is not only nasty, but it also stinks. A hair catcher is the best method to keep hair out of your pipes and above the drain.
Drains should be flushed on a regular basis. We recommend flushing your tub and sinks once a week to eliminate any built-up debris. Fill a bucket halfway with hot water and pour it down the drains carefully. You may also pour water into the toilet, but make sure to flush it frequently to remove any debris.
Make proper use of the waste disposal. Food scraps such as banana peels, coffee grounds, eggshells, pasta, almonds, and potato skins should never be thrown away. While operating the garbage disposal, make sure to have a consistent stream of cold water running.
