4 Basic Sewer Maintenance Tips

by Webmaster Blogger SEO Expert

Sewer backups and overflows are costly and inconvenient. While the Plumber North York team is always available to help fix your sewer problems, there are small things you can do to take care of your sewer, too.

Here are a few basic tips to help you maintain your home and prevent sewer backups:

 

Dispose of Grease Properly: Grease is a common cause of sewer blockages and backups. You should never pour cooking oil or grease down a drain or flush it down a toilet. Even if it is in liquid form when you pour it down the drain, it will eventually cool and solidify, resulting in a blockage in your drain and sewer line. Rather than pouring grease down your pipes, always scrape it into the garbage.

 

Go Easy on Your Garbage Disposal:You should always be careful about what you put in your garbage disposal. You should generally avoid putting any large, fibrous, or tough foods into your disposal, as they can cause damage or clogs. Also, to help prevent food from getting stuck, run cold water down the drain while using your garbage disposal

 

Take Care of Clogged Drains: If a drain becomes completely clogged, it’s usually best to call in a professional. The North York team can remove the blockage and test the pipe to check for leaks. However, you can also clean your drains once a month to help prevent blockages in your shower, sink, or tub.

 

Consider Your Landscaping: Plant and tree roots can cause leaks and blockages in sewer lines. The best way to avoid this is to simply keep trees and shrubs away from your home’s clean-outs and sewer. However, if there are already trees growing near your sewer line, pay close attention to your drain flow.
