Dispose of Grease Properly

Grease is a common cause of sewer blockages and backups. You should never pour cooking oil or grease down a drain or flush it down a toilet. Even if it’s in liquid form when you pour it down the drain, it will eventually cool and solidify, resulting in a blockage in your drain and sewer line. Rather than pouring grease down your pipes, always scrape it into the garbage. for more information visit https://www.mrdrain.com to schedule an appointment today.

Go Easy on Your Garbage Disposal

You should always be careful about what you put in your garbage disposal. You should generally avoid putting any large, fibrous, or tough foods into your disposal, as they can cause damage or clogs. Also, to help prevent food from getting stuck, run cold water down the drain while using your garbage disposal.

Take Care of Clogged Drains

If a drain becomes completely clogged, it’s usually best to call in a professional. Mr.drain Plumbing team can remove the blockage and also test the pipe to check for leaks. However, you can also clean your drains once a month to help prevent blockages in your shower, sink, or tub. Start by pouring equal amounts of baking soda and white vinegar down the drain. Then, an hour later, flush it with plenty of warm water. Don’t wait give us a call today at 510-257-1408.

Consider Your Landscaping

Plant and tree roots can cause leaks and blockages in sewer lines. The best way to avoid this is to simply keep trees and shrubs away from your home’s clean-outs and sewer. However, if there are already trees growing near your sewer line, pay close attention to your drain flow. If you notice any significant changes, call a plumber to check the line.
