Tips for Preventing Clogs
While clogs are extremely common, they’re not always unpreventable. There are certain precautions and preventative measures you can take in order to prevent clogs from becoming a usual occurrence in your Twin Falls or Jerome, ID home.
Some of these prevention tips include:
- Mesh Hair Trap: If you enjoy shaving or washing your hair in the shower, it is highly recommended that you invest in a mesh hair trap. Hair is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to blocked drains and by limiting how much hair goes down your drain, you will significantly lower the risk of a clog happening.
- Garbage Disposal Etiquette: Many people unknowingly misuse the garbage disposals in their kitchen sinks. Designed to handle only small scraps of food waste, many garbage disposals become damaged and clogged by food particles that are way too big.
- Avoid Pouring Grease Down the Drain: Another common kitchen sink mistake people make is pouring cooking grease down the drain. This is one sure way to clog the sink as the grease is too thick and sticks to the drain on its way down. Never pour grease in the sink or in the toilet!
- Improper Toilet Flushing: Toilets are designed to flush two things and two things only: Human waste and toilet paper. Items such as baby wipes, feminine products, and foreign objects should never be flushed down the toilet as this is a sure way to clog the pipes.
Improper flushing habits can lead to an array of problems for your home’s piping system. If your sewer line has been damaged due to lodged objects, give us a call for sewer line repair services.
