As President’s Day just ended, a lot of people have thought about the presidents that our country has had and about the Oval Office. Also - chances are you had a delicious family meal with tons of home cooking and fun.
Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, or you are just cooking your family, one thing that you know is how often clogs can happen in your pipes. But whether it’s a huge holiday meal or just one of your weeknight dinners, there are things that you can do to help things in your own ‘oval office’ and elsewhere keep flowing the right way.
Clog Prevention Starts With You
When it comes to clogs, there are three main spots that they happen – the kitchen sink, the toilet, and the tub.
- Kitchen – One of the biggest things that you have to remember for preventing clogs in your kitchen sink is that you simply can’t put oils and fats down your drain.
- Toilet – You won’t avoid all clogs in your toilet. But one of the best things to remember about toilet clog prevention is nothing but paper and waste goes into it. That’s it.
- Tub – One of the best ways to prevent clogs in your tub is to put a strainer in your tub. This will catch hairs and bits of soap and other small items that might go down your drain otherwise.
Cleaning your drain can be done with liquids that you find on the market, plumber’s snakes and plungers, depending on what drain needs to be cleared.
Easy & Quick Food Disposal
If you have a large family or you do a lot of entertaining, one thing that you might want to add to your kitchen is your own garbage disposal.
These handy items have a lot of advantages to them, including decreasing your waste and getting rid of leftovers quickly without breaking into your time with your family.
There are certain kinds of foods that should never be put down the disposal, though, because they can damage it and cause clogs. These are items like:
- - Bones
- - Eggshells
- - Pasta
- - Coffee grounds
The Benefits of Drain Cleaning
If you’re like a lot of people, chances are you don’t give your drains much though. That is until you have a problem that requires the expertise of a professional plumber.
But there are a lot of benefits to having your drains professionally cleaned from time to time.
Drain cleaning helps with preventing clogs from forming, helps prevent burst and leaking pipes, and it also will help prevent damage to your home from leaks and floods.
Once you have your pipes cleaned, you’ll be able to enjoy entertaining your family and friends without wondering if you have a ticking time bomb which could go off at any minute. If you want to entertain like a president, it starts with taking care of your pipes and drains.
Whether it’s by remembering the right things to flush in your toilet, what you can and can’t put down a garbage disposal or having your drains cleaned professionally, all of them are essential. Take care of your drains and they will take care of you. Call for a drain cleaning consultation today!
