TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *5 Ways to Prevent Drain Clogs

Slow drains are annoying, but they are also a sign of a bigger problem. If you have something clogging your drain it will only build up and become a bigger problem over time. Here are 5 ways to avoid clogging your drains:
  1. Use a drain screen
    Hair and soap scum are major culprits in clogging bath and shower drains. Use a drain screen to catch the debris and clean the screen regularly.
  2. Don't pour grease down the drain
    When you finish cooking, let the grease harden and scoop out as much as you can into the garbage. If you pour grease down the drain it will harden in your pipes.
  3. Don't pour anything else down the drain
    Avoid putting any other chemicals down the drain. Even in a laundry room sink, you'll clog the pipes. Chemical drain cleaners can even erode pipes, so use them sparingly.
  4. Clean your sink stoppers
    Pop-up stoppers can accumulate build-up and should be cleaned regularly.
  5. Pour boiling water down the drain
    Pour boiling water down your drains once a week. Make this a regular part of your cleaning routine to clear the pipes of any scum and build-up.
