Plumbing Tip: Go Green when Cleaning Drains to Enjoy Various Benefits
Drains can best illustrate the idea that whatever you do could come back to haunt you. If you misuse your drains by throwing oily liquids, meal leftovers, and other remnants of your food preparation down the sink, or by flushing tissues and other sanitary products down your toilets, you can bet that the residue and grime will build up and eventually become troublesome clogs. These destructive practices can come back to haunt you in the form of slow draining water, running toilets, and even sewage backups. Fortunately, there are products you can use to clear your drains, but often, the worst clogs will require strong chemicals or complicated unclogging techniques. The fumes from some of the more powerful cleaning solutions can be risky to your health if you handle them yourself. However, you can’t tolerate blockages, even if they seem minor, because those clogs can lead to costly damage to your plumbing system.
