The amount of grease or greasy food products you place down the drain will determine how long it takes to clean them.

Most Long Beach Plumbers will advise that grease not be poured down the drain. Instead, use a paper towel to clean grease from pans and pots before washing. Grease from residential plumbing can clog the drain line by coagulating on the inside. A garbage disposal can increase the frequency of your sewer cleaning. Garbage disposals can deposit more sludge into your pipes. Many people use garbage disposals more than they need.

It is also quite common to be abused. Hard, stringy, or fibrous foods (such as celery skins, carrots and pumpkin pulp) are all acceptable. You should not put them in the garbage disposal. Enzyme drain cleaners can help prolong the time between cleanings. These products can be used immediately after your sewer cleaning.
