Preventive Drain Maintenance Tips
You can reduce the risk of drain clogs by disposing of materials in the trash, such as:
- Fat, grease, and oil
- Coffee grounds
- Pasta and rice
- Flushable wipes
- Paper towels and other paper products
You can also pour boiling water down the drain to break up materials that cause blockages. If you have PVC pipes, use just hot water to prevent damage. Or, you can mix warm water with white vinegar and baking soda and pour the mixture down a drain. Plug the drain, leave it covered for an hour, and let the chemical reaction take place. Then, pour hot water down to flush the material away.
Plumbing professionals who provide drain cleaning in Boise also recommend scheduling annual drain cleaning services. Regular video inspections and pipe cleanings reduce the chances of dealing with a clog for the rest of the year.
