While lots of people mindlessly drop waste down the kitchen sink, it’s easy to forget how sensitive the drainage system actually is. The plumbers of the G.M. Plumbing Corporation in Long Beach have years of experience under their belts, and have seen all sorts of stoppage issues. The Long beach plumbing company wants their clients to be wary of these common sink problems, to prevent them from having major drainage problems in the future. —
“While a garbage disposal grinds down debris in order for it to fit through the narrow drain, the sink should never be used as a general trash disposal,” explained G.M. Plumbing Corporation’s CEO, Philip Graham. “Even waste that seems harmless like cooking grease, can be hazardous for your drain,” continued Graham.
To most people, dumping cooking grease or coffee grounds down the sink after preparing a meal seems like the right thing to do. These seemingly harmless materials build up in the sink’s drain, and can eventually cost a lot in repairs. A great way to prevent this from happening, is by storing common waste like cooking grease and coffee grounds in a can, to throw away in the trash later. Just as important as the kitchen drain, is the sink in the lavatory. Oftentimes, hair, styling product, and even soap, build up in the drain causing a nasty clog. It helps to run hot water down the drain after each use, along with a little baking soda. Running some vinegar down the drain is also a great organic option to prevent a blockage.
When asked how people can prevent these common drain clogs in their homes, CEO of G.M. Plumbing Corporation, Philip Graham said, “All it takes is a little change in one’s daily regimen.” Taking preventative measures makes a small enough difference to save money in repairs down the line. “While it’s impossible to prevent all sink clogs, it’s important for homeowners to take preventative measures to ensure as long a life as possible for their drainage systems,” finished Graham.
