Newton Drain Cleaning: 4 Tips to Prevent Clogged Drains

Most of the time, human error is the cause of drain clogs. That being said, be careful with what you put down the drain! Here are some simple tips to prevent drain backups and help you avoid the need for drain cleaning:

  1. Never pour liquid grease down the drain. The fats in the grease stick to the insides of your home’s pipes, mixing with other chemicals in the sewer to form nasty conglomerations of buildup that block pipes.
  2. Maintain your drain with baking soda and vinegar. The combination of baking soda and vinegar seems to be a good solution for cleaning drains and absorbing odors. Keep in mind, though, that it will not unclog a blocked drain.
  3. Keep hair out. It’s very important to keep the hair out of bathroom drains, especially long hair. Simply install some screens and hair traps. This will prevent the buildup of hair in your drain.
  4. The toilet is not a miracle flusher. Many people think that the pressure that comes with flushing a toilet will flush everything down, but this isn’t the case. Never flush things like hair, dental floss, condoms, cigarettes, chewing gum, or unwanted medications. The toilet was designed to flush human waste – using it for any other purpose can damage your plumbing and lead to expensive repairs.

Signs Your Drains Need Cleaning

Too often we find customers call us when their drains are severely clogged. However, your plumbing will show certain signs when your drains needs cleaning.

Call our Newton plumbers if you notice the following:

  • Slow water drainage
  • Gurgling sounds from drains
  • Foul odors coming from your drains
  • Multiple plumbing clogs at once

In general, drains should be professionally cleaned every year to prevent serious issues. If you have municipal sewers, we strongly recommend hiring a professional to snake your main sewer line every few years. This will remove any debris, including roots.

If you’ve tried our tips and are still experiencing issues with clogged drains, you may have a bigger problem in your main sewer line. Contact Winters Home Services today to schedule a free estimate.
