4 Ways To Prevent The Need For Drain Cleaning

1. Rinse your drains - You should be using a combination of warm water and vinegar in your drains at least once per month. Just because we can't see the drains doesn't mean they couldn't use a good cleaning every now and then. The best way to clean out your garbage disposal is with ice cubes.

2. Put a hair filter on your shower drain - Ask our Salem drain cleaning experts about installing a hair filter on your shower drain. It'll save your tub, drains, and wallet from the seemingly constant demand for drain cleaning.

3. Consider a lint-trap on your washing machine's drain line - If your washing machine just isn't draining as quickly as it used to, then your machine's drain line is clogged because of all the gunk and dirt on your clothing.

4. Be careful about what you put in your garbage disposal - Coffee grounds, egg shells, pasta, rice, celery and bones of any kind should all be thrown away in the garbage to avoid needing our Salem drain cleaning experts. Also, grease and oils can stick to your pipes so throw them out in the trash as well.
