To prevent most of these problems caused by a clogged drain, You can take care of your drain using these tips.
Use Mesh Screens
Using mesh screens for your bathtub, shower drains, and sinks is one of the easiest ways of keeping out hairs, debris or food out of your drain. Mesh Screens will act as sieve and you will be able to see whatever is trapped.
Maintenance is an important part of prolonging the life of anything, this also applies to the drains. It is recommended that you hire a plumber every six months so that he can check for any build ups that might lead to clogs.If regular inspections are not performed then there might be a buildup which might lead to more expensive repairs.
Prevent Grease Buildup
Grease will eventually build up if it is constantly flushed down the drain, to prevent this, run hot water through the drain to stop the grease from building up. You can also atleast pour vinegar and baking soda in the drain then flush it with boiling water.
If you are having trouble with your drain and none of the above seem to work then call a plumber. Contact Plumbing Center Inc for any kind of plumbing at anytime of the day.
