Drain Line Maintenance 


Here are some tips for ensuring your homes drains function properly. Never pour cooking grease down your drain, it seems like the easiest way to dispose of it, but it's one of the worst things you can put in your drain. It will turn into gel and block your sink drain but, it can also travel down your drain and cause a clog deeper into your drain system causing back ups throughout your home. Garbage disposals are a great addition to have in your home but if not used properly can be very bad for your drains. Only put waste that can be effectively broken down into your drain, peelings from fruits or vegetables, egg-shells, corn, rice and pasta should never be put into the garbage disposal because sometimes they can slip through and get into your drain and enough of this waste can cause a clog. Take some time every few months to ensure all your drains are draining properly. Sinks can be filled with water then drained to help wash out anything left behind in the drain. Also drains that aren't used often should have water drained into them to ensure the trap stays full and that will prevent sewer gas from coming through the drain. Your homes drains are a complex system of pipes and are often overlooked in homeowner maintenance but if maintained properly will save you from problems when your least expecting it.
