How frequent do your drains in your house appear? The drains drain water away from our homes, then into the sewer lines. Blockages can lead to serious problems. There are five things you can do to keep your drains clean.

Taken a look on the Greasy Food

Grease can be a problem if it manages to get into your drain. Dumping fat down the toilet will not solve all problems. Glycemic food and sauces can cause problems as well.

Don’t let your hair down

Hair may block drains and pipes. A fine mesh hair catcher will prevent hair from getting down the sink.

Soap Scum

Soap scum can also lead to clogs. It forms when the soap reacts with the water. This creates a sticky, slimy substance. This can be fixed by using a whole-home water softener or switching to liquid soaps.

Clean Drain Lines

Prevention is key. Maintaining a clean drain line can prevent any problems from developing. Long Beach plumbers should clean your drains to prevent expensive repairs.

Copper Sulfate

Roots from trees can cause major problems in drain lines. You can keep the roots away with half a cup each month of copper sulfate sulfate crystals.

Copper sulfate can safely be used. It will only affect roots that are clogged by the drain. The rest of the tree/bush will remain unaffected. Wait until the drain slows before applying copper sulfate.
