The more care you apply to the things you dispose of down the drain, the easier it will be to keep it clean. There are many clogged drains that might never have gotten as bad as they are if food products like grease were not simply dumped into it. There is a reason why residents are warned to avoid throwing certain products down the toilet, but many people may not be aware that coffee grounds can also participate in a clogging episode. The best method for keeping your drains clean is by choosing how you dispose of things.
The good news is that you won't have to dive in and make a bad situation worse.
There are a few key factors that should immediately concern you
- One of the biggest warning signs is a drain that is taking forever to disperse. Taking a plunger to a clogged drain may initially free it up a little, but if the problem returns it could be a lot more serious.
- An unexplained smell coming from the drainage system generally means that waste water is backing up, and you need to contact your plumber.
There is a good reason why preventative maintenance is carried out on mechanical equipment, and that is to stop it from breaking down when you need it the most. When you invite your plumber to have your drains properly cleaned at least once a year, the risk of a clogged drain will be almost non existent.
