Many homeowner’s use their sink and garbage disposal to frequently dispose of food waste. Even when using a garbage disposal, disposing of food down the drain often leads to debris build-up over time that requires professional drain clearing. Keep your drains clear year round by limiting what you put down the drain and spending a few minutes performing preventive maintenance, such as:
• Before and after running your garbage disposal, run cold water down the drain to flush debris down the main line.
• On occasion, run hot water down the drain at full pressure for up to 2 minutes.
• Keep your grinder sharp and eliminate orders by grinding ice and lemon peels through your garbage disposal weekly.
