What To Never Put Down Your Drain

Even though you may have a garbage disposal, there are a few things that you should never put down your drain. Putting these items down your drain can cause clogs and other problems to your system that would require professional drain cleaning or even repairs to your drain.

  • Coffee Grounds - 
    Coffee grounds are not completely water-soluble. When pouring coffee grounds down your drain, the potential of them mixing with butter, oil or even grease that is already down in your pipes can cause a major clog to form in your kitchen plumbing.
  • Eggshells - 
    With eggshells, not only are the shells hard for the garbage disposal blades, but the membranes of the eggshell can warp around the grinding device and cause even more problems for your kitchen sink.
  • Grease - 
    After cooking sausages or any other greasy food, you would think you could just pour the liquid down the kitchen sink. It will go down your kitchen pipes a liquid at first, but as the grease cools down it can congeal in the piping of the sink and catch all sorts of other food and materials and clog your pipe.

How Often Should You Schedule Routine Drain Cleaning Maintenance?

The frequency of routine drain cleaning maintenance can vary depending on several factors, including the age of your plumbing system, the type of pipes you have, and your usage habits. 

Here are some general guidelines to help you determine how often you should schedule drain cleaning:

  • Regular Inspection: It's a good practice to visually inspect your drains periodically. Look for slow drainage, gurgling sounds, or foul odors, as these can be signs of developing clogs.
  • Preventative Maintenance: To prevent major clogs from forming, consider scheduling drain cleaning as part of your annual or bi-annual home maintenance routine.
  • High Usage Areas: Pay special attention to drains in high-usage areas like the kitchen and bathroom sinks, showers, and bathtub drains. These may need more frequent cleaning.
  • Older Plumbing: If you have an older plumbing system with outdated pipes, you may need more frequent drain cleaning as older pipes can be more susceptible to clogs and corrosion.
  • Family Size: Larger households with more people using the plumbing fixtures may need more frequent drain cleaning.
  • Environmental Factors: If you live in an area with hard water or other water quality issues, mineral buildup can lead to clogs. In such cases, you may need more frequent maintenance.
  • Previous Issues: If you've had recurring drain problems or have a history of clogs in your plumbing, it may be wise to schedule more frequent drain cleaning.

Ultimately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to how often you should schedule drain cleaning maintenance. It's best to assess your specific situation and plumbing needs. 

Consulting with a professional plumber can also help you determine the appropriate frequency for drain cleaning based on your unique circumstances. They can provide recommendations tailored to your home's plumbing system and usage patterns.
