water going down the drain

3 Ways to Keep Your Drains Free of Clogs

Drain clogs can cause a real mess. Not only do they prevent water from flowing smoothly out of your sink, tub, or shower, they can cause blockages in your pipes and drain lines that are costly to fix. The best way to avoid this inconvenience is to prevent them from happening in the first place. The drain cleaning experts at Carter Quality Plumbing have three easy ways to keep your drains free of clogs:

  1. Get strainers – Strainers are very inexpensive but are the best way to keep hair (one of the most common causes of clogs) out of your drains.
  2. Only flush items that are okay to flush – There are some items that you should never flush down a toilet. These include feminine products, moist towelettes or wipes, Q-tips, dental floss, and diapers. Use caution and you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble.
  3. Be conscious of what you put in the garbage disposal – You may think any type of food can go down the garbage disposal. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Keep grease, oil, starches, and fibrous foods away from your disposal and you’ll instantly reduce the risk of clogs.
