When the need arises, it’s only natural to be particular about the value you’ll get out of it. In this blog, you will learn the different benefits you can take advantage of when you go for sewer pipe replacement. This is a very helpful guide to those who are now weighing their options on whether or not this repair solution is the best for them. To help you make a sound decision and clear any misconceptions, keep reading on.

Things to do to prep your homes from clogs this year

  1. #1 Clear the old grease off your drains
  2.  
  3. You must have already recovered from the new year’s hangover, but your drains may have not. With holiday cooking, it’s no surprise that your kitchen gets exhausted. A sheer volume of food waste dumped down the garbage disposals can make your drains likely develop a buildup. To keep it working throughout the year, prep your kitchen sink for this year’s daily use by clearing old greases off. Pour enough dishwashing soap into the drain followed by boiling water. Let the dishwashing soap soak your drains for a few minutes first to let it do its job. Afterward, run the water for 1-2 minutes to flush out the remaining debris and dirt. The dishwashing soaps work wonders at loosening grease that has caked your pipe and help release the debris, food waste, and other particles caught in the buildup. Clearing the grease off from last year, plus changing a few of your plumbing habits that are terrible to your drains will surely make you have a year free of clogs.
  4.  
  5. #2 Invest in drain mesh and regularly clean them
  6.  
  7. If there’s an investment you’d like added to your list to purchase, it would be a good idea to include drain meshes. They can be your first line of defense against clog culprits such as hair, dental floss, food scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, etc. A reasonably affordable must-have plumbing stuff you need but can effectively protect your drains from unnecessary clogs all year round. The good thing about drain mesh is that it doesn’t require extensive maintenance. You just need to clean them regularly and you’re good to go. New year, new start, and you might just want to consider installing a new one that works perfectly for your drains. Find the best ones that are really good at catching stuff that can encourage clogs to crop up. You can ask recommendations from the store or a plumber which one works best on your drains. 
  8.  
  9. #3 Change a few of your plumbing habits that didn’t work
  10.  
  11. If you have been not watching what you dump your drain in the past, then now is the best time to change that habit. As you may be well aware, it’s easy for drains to develop a clog when you treat them as a waste bin. It’s not doing any good to your drainage system at all. Let’s put plumbing aside and think of your stomach for a moment. If you put food in your mouth before your system is even able to digest it, you will feel bloated. This is also true with your plumbing. Your drains will be overwhelmed with all the stuff you dump down. Remember, make it a goal this year to dispose of food waste and garbage to where they belong. Not in your drains nor your toilet. If you need to dispose of cooking oil, put it in a resealable jar and dispose of it properly. For food scraps that don’t break down or dissolve, throw them in your waste bin. The same goes with other types of garbage in your shower or toilet such as dental floss, q-tips, baby wipes, etc. Bottom line is, sometimes it only takes a change of a few plumbing habits to do away with clogs. If there’s a sense in doing it, then you have nothing to lose, but only home without clogs.
  12.  
  13. #4 Don’t miss your outdoor drains
  14.  
  15. Sometimes, clogs can also start outside your door, therefore, don’t give your outdoor drain a chance to be overwhelmed with debris and dirt. Debris from plants, trees, and dust can be an issue for your outdoor drains, especially during heavy rainfall. Unfortunately, this occurrence is not always predictable and can happen anytime. Therefore, as early as now, give your yard good grooming, cut some branches off your sprawling trees, and make it a habit to keep your drain opening free from anything notorious for blocking it. Keep in mind, your garden maintenance plays a vital role in maintaining your outdoor drainage capacity to expel runoffs. So make sure to add this to your checklist.
  16.  
  17. #5 Give up your harmful soaps
  18.  
  19. If it’s terrible to your drains, ex it out of your shopping list. You may not believe it but some soap doesn’t make good friends with drains. Soap bombs for example as well as those that contain moisturizers. Soap bombs sometimes contain particles that don’t break down or dissolve, while moisturizers have grease. If it’s already been a while that you’re using these types of soap,  it’s about time you give them up and try something else that is less likely to harm your drains. If you can’t, limit your use of this product, and make sure to run boiling water from time to time to make sure grease doesn’t get a chance to cause buildup to develop.
  20.  
  21. #6 Consider drain relining when all else fails
  22.  
  23. If there’s anything more effective in making sure your drainage system’s capacity to discharge water from the drains to the main sewer line is seamless throughout the year, it would be to consider drain relining. Clogs can come about at the most unexpected times but if your drains have been checked by the drain relining companies, you can use it without worrying that another clog might trouble you. If your budget permits, or even if it doesn’t, add drain relining Sydney in your things to consider this year to ensure an optimally working drainage system, free from clogs, leaks, and other damages for the full year and going forward.
