7 Koller Cleaning Tips and Tricks to Avoid Clogged Drains
Updated: May 8
1 Don’t pour grease or oil down your sink
Grease and cooking oil can harden and clog your pipes. Instead, pour them into a bowl lined with aluminum foil, or an empty aluminum can and dispose of them in the trash.
2 Be cautious of what you flush down the toilet
Never flush non-degradable items like wipes, diapers, cotton balls, or feminine hygiene products down the toilet.
3 Avoid using harsh chemical drain cleaners
Harsh chemicals can erode the pipes and do more harm than good. Opt for natural alternatives like vinegar and baking soda to keep your drains clean, or have a professional plumber perform drain-clearing services as often as needed.
4 Use a drain strainer
Install drain screens in your sink, shower, and tub to catch hair, soap scum, and other debris that can cause obstruction.
5 Use hot water
Regularly flush your drains with hot water to help dissolve any buildup and keep your pipes clear.
6 Dispose of waste properly
Garbage belongs in the bin and not the sink or toilet. Be sure to properly dispose of food scraps, paper products, and other waste materials.
7 Clean drains regularly
Schedule professional cleaning services at regular intervals to evaluate the system and correct any problems.
