Never Put These Items Down Your Drain

While our pipes are designed to process wastewater and other biodegradable fluids, many of us put the wrong things down the drain without realizing it.

Here are a few things you should never put down your drain:

  • Cat litter: It’s terrible for pipes and worse for septic systems. 
  • Paint: Never put paint down your drains; it can coat your pipes and cause clogs.
  • Coffee grounds: Small but fierce, coffee grounds are a surprisingly common source of clogs. 
  • Rice or pasta: These foods continue to expand by absorbing water, increasing clog risk.
  • Eggshells: Always dispose of eggshells via your garbage can, as they can create severe clogs.

Tips for Clearing a Clog

Are you dealing with a stubborn clog? Here are a few tips worth trying before pursuing our professional drain-clearing services:

  • Plunger: Try using a plunger to loosen clogs. Be sure to use the correct plunger for your needs.
  • Vinegar & baking soda: This tried-and-true mix may break down minor clogs.
  • Boiling water: Sometimes hot water helps clear pipes. 
  • Augers & drain snakes: Use an auger or drain snake to clear away debris lodged in a pipe. 
  • Avoid overusing liquid drain cleaners: Frequent use can eat away at your pipes, damaging your plumbing in the long term.

How To Prevent Drain Clogs

Here are a few preventative steps you can take to reduce your risk of a drain clog:

  • Clean your drain stoppers regularly: Hair and soap scum accumulate quickly on your drain stoppers.
  • Drain strainers: Use a mesh strainer to prevent non-liquid substances from going down your pipes. 
  • Follow best practices: Don’t flush anything other than toilet paper down your toilet or allow items from the list above to go down your drains.
  • Proper disposal: Use your garbage can, not your sink, for food disposal. 
  • Brush your hair before showering: Let your hairbrush, not the shower drain, catch all those loose hairs before jumping in. 
  • Water treatment: Install a water softener to reduce the risk of hard water damaging your water-using appliances.

David did a great job replacing the light fixture in my garage. He also conducted an electrical inspection and suggested what I need to get replaced. I really appreciate everything…
