How To Prevent Clogged Drains & Toilets in Cold Spring
Clogged drains and toilets rank high among life’s little nuisances. So the idea is to prevent them from clogging in the first place. Here’s some practical advice on how to do just that!
- Check your sink and tub stoppers at least four times a year for hair and bio-film buildup.
- Once a week, fill each sink in your home to the brim and then pull up the stopper. The volume and weight of the water will help flush the drain lines.
- Once a month or so, pour an organic drain cleaner down each of your drains. Products like Bio-Clean (which we carry!) work much better than the chemical drain cleaners and won’t damage your fixtures or pipes.
- Never pour oil or grease down a drain…instead, use a jar that you can later discard.
But should a clog occur anyway, try using a plunger first, but don’t use a plunger after applying a chemical drain cleaner. Chemicals can damage steel and iron pipes, eventually causing them to leak or burst.
