5 Ways to Prevent Drain Clogs

Clogged sinks can be very inconvenient.   There are ways to prevent clogged drains on your own, but it is very beneficial to find a professional plumber when in doubt. Below are things you need to know about preventive maintenance on your drains.

Run hot water down drain

After each use of your kitchen sink, it is a good idea to run very hot water down the drain. Doing so will help keep some of the oils and foods off the pipes. In more serious cases, this may make little or no difference.

Try baking soda and vinegar

Baking soda is a great cleaning agent. Throw a fourth of a cup of baking soda and follow up with hot water. Another great household product you can use is vinegar. Vinegar is also a great cleaner. Pour about a cup of vinegar down the drain, let it sit for about 30 minutes, then rinse it with very hot water.

Avoid dumping grease down drain

When cooking with grease, it is important to dump it into a glass container for future use or you may choose to empty your grease outside your back door. Either way is much better than putting grease down your drain. 

Use grate or screen

There are many choices of grates and/or screens to protect your drain. Stop by a local store and choose what is best for your individual needs and wants. Purchasing one of these will be a great investment and definitely not a waste of time or money to invest in one. 

Collect your food waste

It is tempting to just let your food go down the drain, but when you do that, you run a greater risk of clogs. It is important to keep all food out of the drain and throw away right away or collect it and throw it away in the garbage at once, not the sink.
