Things you can do to prevent drain clogs

Drain clogs can be a pain and can cause further issues such as clogging your pipes. It’s important that you do everything you can to prevent any drain clogs. Here are some things you can do to prevent them:

  • Be aware of what you put down the drain: Before putting your plate in the sink, make sure all of the food is scraped off into the garbage. Many foods such as meat, eggshells, and coffee grounds should not be poured down the drain because they will cause a clog.
  • Use sink strainers: Sink strainers help to catch hair, dirt, and debris from going down your drain and causing a clog. Just make sure to empty and clean the strainer when it is full or dirty. 
  • Run water down your drain daily: Running warm water down your drain helps to get rid of any buildup that may be in your drain. Try to run water down your drain for about 30 seconds every day.
