In order to take care of all of your plumbing needs, we not only deal with repairs that you have, but we also want to help you to prevent them! That is why we have come up with the following list of tips for keeping your drains clog free:
- Use your garbage disposal wisely – In a previous blog, we went over several things that you should never put down your garbage disposal. Grease, fibrous foods, egg shells and coffee ground are just a few of the many things that we went over. By avoiding these things in your garbage disposal, you are doing your part to prevent clogs! Take it one step further by always remembering to run the cold water when your garbage disposal is in use. Running water will help to prevent food from building up around your garbage disposal.
- Clean your pipes regularly – Keep your pipes sparkling clean by using a mixture of vinegar and baking soda to clean them. This is an effective, non-toxic way to keep your pipes clean without the use of chemical cleaners. Chemical cleaners can also be effective, but they can be damaging to your pipes, so if you must use them, do so sparingly.
