How Basic Planning Can Stop Pesky Drain Clogs

Drain clogs may seem like an inevitable part of every homeowner’s life, but a little simple planning helps you avoid unnecessary clogs. Your plumbing system is one of the most important systems in your home. It might not be an aspect of your home that you think about every day, but without your plumbing system, you couldn’t take a shower in the morning or have a toilet in your home. Drain clogs are often the result of a slow build-up of debris in your system over time, so prevention is feasible. When you need drain cleaning in Bethesda, MD you need the services of our team here at Mallick Plumbing & Heating.  

Steps to Keep Your Plumbing System Healthy

There are remarkably simple steps you can take to keep your plumbing system healthy. We’ve listed a few key points below.

Know Your System

The first step in preventing drain clogs is truly understanding your plumbing system. Most homeowners know the basics. But it’s vital that you know where your plumbing system exists within your home, where the vulnerable points are, where your shut-off valve is, and how to care for your system. Once you learn these basic points of your system, dealing with any plumbing issues that may arise in the future becomes much easier.

Be Mindful of What Goes Down the Drain

There are certain things that should never go down any drain in your home. These things are called FOGS or fats, oils, and grease. FOG is common in the kitchen, so make sure that you let oils and greases cool in a container like an old coffee can and dispose of them in the trashcan rather than pouring them down your sink. Oils like these may travel down as liquids but they’ll solidify and causes blockages.

Pro Tip: Don’t use over the counter drain cleaners to try and alleviate the issue. This is never a good idea. While these items may promise instant gratification, the caustic chemicals in these items do more harm than good to your pipes.

Fix Problems Quickly

If you do encounter a plumbing problem even after taking care of your drains, have a professional service your system as soon as possible. Don’t wait or try to fix these problems on your own, a professional from a team like ours has the right technology to clean your drains expertly.

Here at Mallick Plumbing & Heating, we use a process called hydro-jetting. Hydro-jetting is a lot what it sounds like, we shoot high-pressure water down the pipes to remove any blockages safely and efficiently.
