POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric, a BBB A+ accredited business and recipient of more than 1,000 5-star consumer reviews, is providing Hudson Valley locals a list of what to do and what not to do when it comes to maintaining home plumbing and drains.
"With busy school mornings for local families and fall festivities around the corner, clogged drains and plumbing are common struggle," said Tommy Webber, owner of T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric. "Fortunately, most plumbing problems are totally preventable. Knowing what to do and, most importantly, what not to do can really alleviate a lot of stress and save both time and money."
T.Webber's best practices with regard to drain maintenance include:
- Do minimize the amount of food that gets washed down the kitchen sink. A few leftover crumbs here and there are bound to end up going down the kitchen sink when you rinse your dishes after eating. As much as possible though, try to scrape all of the food you can out into a garbage container before rinsing your plate.
- Do regularly apply natural cleaners to your drains. It's best not to regularly use harsh, chemical cleaners on your drains. However, maintaining a routine dose of a natural, biological treatment to clean out your pipes will help improve the performance of your entire drain system.
- Don't pour grease down a drain. Instead of disposing of grease by pouring it down a drain, allow it to cool and solidify and then dispose of it with other solids. Hot grease may begin to run down the drain, but as it cools it will begin to build up in the pipes, catch other debris and form clogs.
- Don't force fibrous fruits and vegetables through your garbage disposal. Foods like uncooked carrots, potato peels, broccoli stalks, corn, asparagus and other fibrous fruits and vegetables are best disposed of in a compost pile outside or in the trash. If they go down your garbage disposal, they could entangle and damage the unit.
- Don't let hair go down your bathroom drains. Whether it's the shower or the sink, letting hair slip down the drains will cause clogs over time. Consider placing strainers over bathroom drains to catch any loose hairs. This way, you can dispose of them in the trash can instead of losing them in your piping.
