If you want to prevent blocked drains, you need to make sure they are kept in good condition. Having an annual drain inspection can help you to detect issues before they become disruptive problems.
Here are a couple of things you can do at home in your bathroom and kitchen to prevent blocked drains.
It’s perfectly normal to use substances such as shampoos, oils, soaps, toothpaste, and other personal grooming products when you use the bathroom. While they might not present an immediate issue, over time, they can start to build-up, and may lead to either a full or partial blocked drain in your bathroom so limiting the amount flushed down the drain can be a big help.
Shower and Basin drains commonly are blocked by hair, limiting the amount of hair which is being flushed down the shower or basin drain can prevent slow running or completely blocked drains.
Routine drain inspection and maintenance can help you keep your drains clean and clear of any clogging or debris that can form over time.
It goes without saying that your kitchen sinks have to deal with lots of waste over time. Food, liquids, oils, and other substances that make it through the plug can become lodged in the pipes.
A practical way you can avoid this is to make sure that your plates are completely clear of food before they find their place in the sink. Use a strainer in your kitchen sink to prevent bulky foodstuffs from getting into your pipes.
Along with this, running hot water down your sink for 30 seconds after washing particularly greasy pans and pots can be a massive help for preventing solidified fat build up.
