For Drain Pipes
To help with your interior drain pipes, we recommend residents follow these helpful tips as a regular maintenance plan that we’ve received from a plumber.
Hot Water Flushing
Kitchen drains frequently get blocked with food residues and other dirt. Scum and dirt attaches itself to the bathroom drains with time. All these can effectively be washed away with hot water. It is a good idea to use hot water to flush your drains once a week. Boil a large pot of hot water. Slowly pour it down the various household drains. Repeat the action a second time. Allow cold water to flow through the drains for a minute. Hot water is excellent for clearing trapped material in the drains. It will help prevent buildup of dirt, grease and residues in the drain.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
This is an excellent treatment that will effectively clear your drains. You can do this once a month. It will also leave your drains smelling fresh. It is best to do this at night when the day’s drain usage is over. Pour half a cup of baking soda into the drain. Follow with an equal measure of vinegar. Plug in the sink or bathroom stoppers. Next morning, boil plenty of water. Remove the stoppers and flush the drains with the hot water. It will clear your drains of accumulated dirt and leave them with a fresh smell.
Keep the Wipes out of the Pipes!!!!
Please do not flush wipes down the toilet (even flushable wipes are not flushable).
