Drain Maintenance Tips for 2021

It will be 2021 in mere days now. As you head into the new year, you will want to ensure your plumbing is in good shape. If there’s a problem, you can have a plumber from Rol Air Plumbing & Heating come to make repairs. In the meantime, it’s important to use certain plumbing maintenance tips for 2021.

Throw These Things in the Garbage

Some items should be thrown away in the garbage instead of flushed down the drain. This includes porous foods such as coffee grounds, eggshells, fruit peels, seeds and pits. You will also want to properly dispose of unused medication, napkins, paper towels, feminine hygiene products and cleaning wipes, which should never be flushed down the toilet. All of these items can lead to clogs that require professional drain cleaning in Elk River, MN.

Flush Your Drains

When it comes to your sinks, flushing them with hot water at least once per week is a good idea. If the wrong substances potentially go down your drain, running the hot water can help to break them up and prevent a clogged drain. However, if you are running your garbage disposal, you should make sure you run the cold water instead of hot.

Dispose of Grease and Oils

Grease and oil should not go down your kitchen sink drain. They can harden and solidify in the pipes when the hot and cold water are alternately used, causing a huge problem that requires drain cleaning services to fix. Grease and oil should go in the trash. You can pour them in a glass jar, let them harden and then more easily dispose of them.

Use Drain Screens

All of your drains can benefit when you use drain screens. In the bathroom, they are particularly helpful at catching hair and debris from soap and other personal cleaning products. They can also catch food particles that can otherwise go down the drain and cause a clog. Without drain screens, you would likely need hydro jetting more often.
