We all know that one of the worst, yet common, plumbing issue arises when your kitchen drain back ups. The family has finished up dinner and are nearing the end of the clean up process in an effort to sit down and get some face time with the TV and/or computer and the drain will not clear. Every attempt to clear it simply causes more frustration before it is finally time to contact your friendly plumber! Here are some tips to keep in mind to avoid this problem in the future!
- Avoid pouring grease down the drain. Instead, simply wipe out grease with a paper towel or pour into a safe container and dispose.
- Avoid pouring leftover paints, varnishes or other hazardous materials down any drain.
- Be certain to run cold water through your garbage disposal both during and after each use.
- Foods such as noodles, banana peels, rice or other fibrous material(s) should not be put down the drain. Many believe that the disposal will chop it up and send it down the drain just fine, but this is not the case. The majority of calls regarding a clogged kitchen sink are due to these type of materials.
