General Maintenance Tip

Prevention Tips:

The best way to keep drains clear is to limit what you put in them.

  • Keep food, coffee grounds and grease out of kitchen drains.
  • Put leftover food in the trash, not the garbage disposal.
  • Pour liquid grease into a sealable container. After it cools, put it in the trash.
  • Keep hair and soap scum out of bathroom drains. Cover your tub and shower drains with a mesh screen or a perforated shower drain hair catcher. Either one will collect the hair and let the water run through.
  • Brush your hair before you shower or take a bath. This process removes loose hair and keeps it from clogging the shower drain.
  • If you must bathe your dog in the tub or shower, place a washcloth over the drain. The amount of hair a dog sheds during a bath can even clog your regular shower drain hair catcher.
  • Watch what you flush. Toilets are designed to handle human waste and toilet paper. Flushing dense, stringy or bulky materials can cause a clog
  • Dental floss, feminine hygiene products and other household waste should go in the trash instead.
