Tips for preventing drain clogs

Drain clogs can be a pain to fix. The best way to avoid drain clogs is by preventing them:

  • Eliminate grease: Pouring grease down your drain is a common thing people do, but it is terrible for your drain. The grease gets stuck to the side of the drain and catches other debris that goes down the drain and creates a clog. 
  • Don’t put food down your drain: When you’re doing the dishes there may be some food left on the plate that could go down the drain and cause a clog. Before putting your dishes in the sink, scrape off all the food that is on it. 
  • Rinse drain with hot water: Hot water helps to move any debris or food that is stuck in the drain.
