What can you do to avoid clogs?
Although minor clogs are common due to small debris and mineral buildup over time, you can avoid major clogs by being mindful of what enters your kitchen and bath drains on a regular basis.
Food waste should only go down a drain with a garbage disposal installed. Garbage disposals should be run with cold water for at least 30 seconds. Grease and difficult-to-shred food items (coffee grounds, bones, fibrous vegetables, etc.) should not enter your drains.
Make sure you have a strainer over your drain to catch stray food particles and limit clogging. A strainer should also be placed over your shower drain to catch hair and soap. This is a simple yet effective way to prevent buildup in your pipes.
