How to Prevent Clogs in Your Drains?


How are your drains lately? Do you notice that it takes a while for the water to get fully drained? If that is the case, then it seems your drain is already showing signs that it’s about to get clogged.

There can be a few reasons or elements on why our drains get clogged. However, the drain’s four biggest enemies are as follows: cooking grease, coffee grounds, hair and soap scum. We have to admit; we are all guilty of introducing these items to our drain. To avoid calling a plumbing service in Sterling Heights, we need to add a few steps in how we use our kitchen or bathroom. For the best tips on cleaning your drains visit Certified Plumbing.

Extra steps to avoid clogging your drain

In our kitchen, we should avoid draining our cooking grease. Instead, save it in an old coffee can or cardboard milk container then dispose of it in the trash. For your coffee grounds, rather than throw it down the drain, you can add them to your mulch pile, if you have a garden in your backyard. Another option is to give it to a friend who has a small garden at their home. The bathroom drains usually catch all of our falling hair when we take a bath. Instead of clogging your drain with this, you can use a screen or drain-grate to cover the drain’s opening and minimize the hair and soap scums from clogging your drain.

Regular maintenance

If you are running a very busy schedule or has a very busy household, the tendency is the kitchen and bathroom drains will be overworked too. Because of this, we need to make sure that we regularly clean the drains and free it from any form of particles. It may be an added task to us, especially when all we want to do is hit the sheets and wake up the next day but it is necessary to do so.

We don’t have to do it every night. If you don’t have an extra window on your very busy schedule, you can contact Certified Plumbing and take advantage of their Sterling Heights drain cleaning service. They have experts that can help you do regular cleaning maintenance of all your drains.

On the other hand, if you are a bit tight on the budget, there are a few homemade handy tips that you can do to keep the drains in your home running freely. While washing the dishes, start boiling a pot of water. Once you have finished washing the dishes, you can run hot water through the sink after using it. The hot water keeps the oil in food products to run down the drain, rather than build upon the interior surface of the pipes. Another handy tip is to throw a handful of baking soda into the drain and then run the drain with hot water.
