Step 1. Avoid Putting Chemical-Laden Products Down the Drain

When the kitchen sink or shower fills with water and it just won’t seem to go down, it’s easy to reach for the nearest bottle of whatever unclogging solution you have on hand. While this may seem like the fastest and simplest solution, it may just be a temporary fix that will do more harm than good in the long run.

While chemical-laden products used to unclog drains will do just that, these same products can eat away at the pipes that compose your plumbing system. Even worse, most of these products don’t get rid of the clog completely. In many instances, it will only make the blockage smaller temporarily. This means that you will be reaching for the bottle again soon, only to slowly disintegrate your pipes more.

Step 2. From Food Scrap to Cleaning Products, Be Mindful of What Goes Down the Drain

It can be difficult to be mindful about what can and can’t go down the drain in your home but it’s important to do so to avoid a seriously damaging clog in your home’s plumbing system. Make sure to keep as many food scraps as you can out of your sink even if you have a garbage disposal, and avoid letting hair build up in the shower drain. When clots form within the drains of your plumbing, it can increase water pressure and put unnecessary stress on your pipes.

Garbage disposals are convenient, but they need to be treated with care to prevent them from clogging and breaking prematurely. They need regular maintenance.
