How You Can Avoid Drain Clogs For Longer

When a major drain clog inconveniences your home, you have to take time out of your busy schedule to schedule service. And no matter how fast and reliable a plumbing company may be, this is something you should not have to deal with on a regular basis. You can avoid drain clogs for longer by following our helpful tips for keeping drain clogs away.

  • Use Your Garbage Disposal Properly: Non-food items, large chunks of food, and fibrous (stringy) foods like onion skins and celery can actually damage the garbage disposal motor. Food wrappers and other such trash belong in the garbage can, as do seeds, bones, and fruit pits. We also recommend cutting large chunks of food into smaller bits. Additionally, consider disposing of expandable foods (like pasta and rice) in a separate receptacle, as well as fats, oils, and grease that can also lead to major pipe buildup.
  • Get a Drain Cover: Only wastewater should move down your bathroom sink and shower drains, but we know that hair in the drain is often unavoidable. However, you can purchases a low-cost drain cover at your local hardware store to reduce the amount that actually enters the drainpipe.
  • Schedule Drain Cleaning with Hydro Jetting: Regular drain cleaning can help to prevent clogs from forming deep within the drain and sewer lines, where they are the most difficult to remove. A professional plumber can use hydro jetting to blast away blockage with a high-pressure water hose. This eliminates residue in the pipes so that debris doesn’t have a chance to collect.
