Preventing Drain Disasters During the Holidays

Posted on: November 18, 2014

The holidays can be particularly demanding on your home’s plumbing system, and especially drains. With the extra demands brought on by holiday visitors and large meals, the risk of clogs increases significantly.

Here are some tips to avoid drain problems during the holidays.

1. Deep frying your turkey this year? Remember to never dispose of fryer grease down the drain! Even a floor drain. Instead, put it in a sealed container and freeze it if possible before putting it in the garbage.

2. Coffee ground should not be put down the drain or disposal.

3. Make sure your kitchen and bath drains have a grate or screen to prevent debris like hair and other waste from building up in the drain pipe.

4. Rinse the drain with hot water to prevent oil and grease from accumulating.

5. If your drains are prone to clogging, consider a safe, environmentally friendly option for keeping your plumbing system working smoothly. Bio-Clean is a safe blend of bacteria and enzymes. The friendly bacteria actually eat away the build up, leaving behind only water, carbon dioxide and mineral ash. The bacteria continue to multiply, thriving on their natural food source . . . that gunky build up in your pipes and drains, completely cleaning your home’s entire plumbing system.

Have a clogged drain?

First, try physically clearing the drain with a plunger. We recommend avoiding the use of chemical drain cleaning products. They can be hazardous to use and store in the home and can damage your plumbing fixtures.

If all else fails to clear your clogged drain, Call ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric. We’re here to help anytime.
