Flushing Non-Biodegradable Items
A common misconception is that you can flush whatever you want down the toilet. Flushing non-biodegradable items, like baby wipes, cotton swabs, and tampon applicators, can cause blockages at the bends in your pipes. These obstructions will often result in the need for professional plumbing repairs.
Putting Grease and Scraps Down the Drain
Many homeowners mistreat their kitchen sinks. A simple way to avoid plumbing repairs is to dispose of cooking grease and food scraps elsewhere. Always make sure to keep the drain trap in place to catch larger particles before they go down the drain.
Attempting Quick Fixes
There are several bottled cleaners and drain clearing options available in stores. While these can help with some clogs, the harsh chemicals found in the ingredients actually cause more harm than good. If a clog isn’t immediately cleared away, the chemicals pool in place and will begin to dissolve your pipes. Paying a plumbing professional for clogged drain services is less expensive than plumbing repairs or pipe replacement.
