Gurgling sounds in toilets and gradual flooding on the floor are common signs that your drainage system needs immediate fixing. Minor symptoms include strange sounds and accumulated water in sinks, common indications of blocked pipe openings. However, water slowly seeping inside the house is already a sign of a broken or clogged pipeline.
Daily and Weekly Maintenance
Like your regular household item, the drainage system has to be regularly cleaned for lasting usage and effective functioning. Pour a pot of boiling water down the drain once a week to support flushing operations. For the monthly maintenance, use draining products like an enzymatic cleaner to keep it fresh and odorless. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to get help from an expert to make sure you’re not contributing to the worsening of the damage, if there is any.
Natural Means of Maintenance
Disposal drains are also vulnerable to foreign items if not attended to regularly. To keep it clog-free, use sliced peelings of citrus fruits down the disposal drains or run ice cubes on garbage disposals to remove any residues or plaque.
