How to Prevent a Clogged Drain

As a homeowner, you know all too well how obnoxious drain clogs are, and likewise how difficult it can be to avoid them. It seems like no matter what you do, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid having your drains eventually slow down and stop as they become filled with gunk and other residue that stops water flow. While avoiding clogs may not be possible, reducing the chances of dealing with one doesn’t have to be; there are certain steps you can take to limit the likelihood that a blockage will form in your plumbing system’s drains.

If you want to avoid a blocked drain in your kitchen, here are a few things you shouldn’t put down the garbage disposal:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Eggshells
  • Meat
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Flour
  • Vegetable peels
  • Fruit pits
  • Bones
  • Medicines
  • Cooking grease
  • Oatmeal

To prevent toilet clogs, you should avoid flushing any unapproved items, such as paper towels, excessive toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, or items that accidentally fall into the bowl. You should also try to avoid putting long strands of hair down any drain, including your bathroom sink or utility room sink drains, as hair is a huge contributor to most clogs.

Sewer Line Repairs & Rooter Services

Drain problems are one thing, but a sewer line problem is a whole other level of frustrating and difficult for homeowners.
