Tips On How To Keep Your Drains Cleaned
Some of the biggest culprits behind your drain clogs are hair, grease, food, and soap scum. Count on Mike Counsil Plumbing and Rooter to help you understand how to properly send them down the drain with the following tips to keep your drains cleaner in between our visits:
Rinse With Hot Water: This can help soap scum and foods with oils move faster through the drain system instead of letting pile up on the walls with cold water.
Baking Soda: Not only can this help collect oils and more from the walls of your drain, but it can also help with the smells that develop over time.
A strainer in Kitchen Sink: This tool can help save you time and energy by catching oversized items the disposal may not be able to handle. You can easily remove and clean if it becomes too clogged with other items not suited from the drain.
Vinegar: Pouring vinegar down the drain periodically removes organic backup. It is a natural cleaner thanks to its acetic acid content. You can also pair it with vinegar, boiling water, and salt for even more effectiveness. Place in the drain and then sit for 30 minutes before putting water down the drain again.
Drain Cleaning Chemicals: While these are great for a quick fix, practice restraint and do not overuse them. They can actually damage the walls of your drain if overused. Call Mike Counsil Plumbing and Rooter if you frequently must pour more down the drain.
