Handy Tips to Keep Drains Clean and Clog-Free

Handy Tips to Keep Drains Clean and Clog-Free

No one likes to deal with clogged drains, but unfortunately, homeowners encounter this common plumbing issue often. Thankfully, it is easy to keep drains clean and clog-free. Check out these helpful hints from NuFlow St. Louis:

Keep Grease and Fat Off Your Drains

Grease and fat in the kitchen sink are some of the leading causes of clogged drains. Avoid putting grease or fat down your drains - always throw away grease from cooked foods into a tin can, then throw it in the garbage when it cools. Never pour oil or grease down the drain, even if you put a little hot water in with it. If you have a habit of disposing oil and grease down your drains, we recommend scheduling regular drain cleaning in St. Louis, MO.

Use Baking Soda and Vinegar for Your Laundry Room 

Kitchen sinks aren't the only problem when it comes to clogged drains. Avoid clogs by taking care of your laundry room sink with regular drain cleaning services. When washing out your clothes after doing your laundry or doing a load of wash, put hot water down the drain and give it a few seconds to make sure any soap suds or dirt are gone. Another way to keep your laundry room drains clean is by washing them with baking soda and vinegar every once in a while, then put on the disposal for just five seconds. Avoid using chemical cleaners, as these can corrode pipes. 

Protect Your Drains from Hair Clogs

If you're like most people, you've probably had to deal with a clogged drain at some point in your life. One of the most common causes of clogged drains is hair, so be sure to invest in a drain catcher for your bathroom shower and sink to catch any loose hair. 

Using a Strainer to Dispose of Food Debris

Kitchen sinks clog up quickly due to food debris, but it’s easy to avoid this clog-causing issue. Simply get rid of any leftover food on plates before washing them on the sink. It also pays to schedule frequent drain snaking procedures to get rid of any built-up food and debris.
