It’s always there, looking up at you, patiently waiting to help you. It’s your drain and you most likely see it and use it every day. We’re here to remind you to show it some love…
Why it’s important to have clean drains.
Clean drains keep your plumbing happy and healthy. It’s that simple. And if you don’t maintain your drains, if you ignore any accumulations starting to happen, they’ll get clogged. And then not only will you have dirty drains, you’ll have blockages, which will mean even more problems for you. In fact, a clogged or blocked drain can throw off the balance of pressure in your plumbing, leading to cracked or ruptured pipes. Yikes.
What causes blockages?
It depends on where your drain is, right? First, let’s acknowledge that some of the most common clogs happen in sinks, showers, and toilets, in laundry drains, in roof gutters, and in outdoor pipes that are invaded by tree roots.
In kitchen sinks, the main reason for clogs are food bits and grease. You should not be putting any fats, oils or grease down the drain. It seems reasonable then that shower drains are most commonly clogged by soap scum and hair. Toilets are easily backed up by paper towels and so-called “flushable” wipes, which are NOT flushable as they don’t break down in water like toilet paper does.
You really don’t have to be a rocket scientist—or a professional plumber—to understand what might cause a blockage or clog in your drain.
A clean drain is a happy drain.
Unless you enjoy clogs and disruptions in your household, keeping your drains clean and happy should be on your to-do list. Show them some love by keeping the “bad” stuff out, and rinsing them with hot water regularly, just to encourage anything clinging to the pipes to be on its way before it becomes a nasty clog.
