Tips to prevent frequently clogged drains?

If you’re a homeowner or even a tenant, you want always to make sure one thing, especially in your home, is working properly – the plumbing. Too often, major plumbing issues can be avoided if the proper maintenance and attention is applied before the problem escalates. We’re going to cover two big issues we see in homes and how to approach them correctly from the start.

Clogged Drains
Hey, we’ve all been there! A drain that use to wash down no problem is transforming into a small puddle in your sink. You ignore it and ignore it until it reaches a point where you’re coming back into the room, and the water is still draining.

So, what do we do?

Our first reaction might be to run to the local store and buy the most powerful drain clearing chemicals on the market.

Before you do this slow down a bit…

Those powerful chemicals at your local store might solve your slow drain issue, but they’ll cause massive headaches down the road. A lot of commercial chemical based solutions will cause massive damage to your pipes and sewer lines, and we certainly don’t want that.

Try this:
Solution one – Grab the ever so handy (and versatile) baking soda and pour a medium amount down your drain. Follow it up with hot water and this should clear things up plus knock out any bad odors.

Solution two – If solution one doesn’t work, pour a cup of vinegar down the tube and wait a half hour. Then pour down the hot water. This one-two combo should remove any organic buildup in the pipes.

How to clear a backed up drain with vinegar?

For a Garbage Disposal – Freeze a tray full of ice cubes of half water, half vinegar and dump them down the drain. The chopping action will help the ice physically chip off debris, and the vinegar acts as a mild acid to clean grease build-up.

How do you unclog a badly blocked drain & garbage disposal?

Hopefully, the above solutions helped. If not, call a local service professional like Flatirons Plumbing. Professional plumbers carry the necessary tools to unclog the problem while preserving your pipes and sewer lines.

Now the best case scenario is to prevent a clogged drain altogether. There is a lot of mixed information in terms of what you can and cannot do when it comes to your drains. Let’s demystify this once and for all to make sure your drains stay clear.

Fact – Don’t let cooking grease or oil, coffee grounds, hair, and soap scum slip down your drain. These are the heavy hitting culprits when it comes to clogged drains in the home.

Fact – Make sure to run hot water down the drain every time you use the sink to prevent build-up on the inside of your pipes. Hot water will keep things from building up. Feel free to add baking soda periodically to freshen the odor and give an extra layer of cleaning.

Fact – Use a drain strainer to keep food scraps out of the drain pipes. Drain strainers are extremely cheap when you compare it to the cost it might take to fix a drain. Pick up a drain strainer at your local hardware store to keep any unwanted items from breaching your pipes.

If you are performing these preventive measures and you still are having issues with clogged drains, then you may have issues with installation or failure of the piping.
