All households have plumbing problems. Regular maintenance and preventive measures can help to avoid these problems. You don’t need much knowledge or the ability to work hard to prevent plumbing problems. These are steps to take to ensure you don’t have common plumbing issues every day.

Don’t pour cooking oil down your drain

Clogs can be caused by cooking grease built up over time. Once it cools, cooking grease hardens and sticks in the pipes.

Always use drain screens

You should place drain screens over your drainage pipes. This will prevent hair from getting in the pipes and causing clogs.

Use baking soda

Baking soda can be your best friend for cleaning grout, grease and tiles. To prevent blocked drains, sprinkle baking soda into your drains. Pour warm water into the drain to evenly distribute the baking soda. Let the drain drain for about 1 cup of vinegar sit for several hours. Then flush it with hot, running water. To keep your drains clean and free from scum, you should do this often.

Take care of your old pipes and water heater

Water heaters can be durable but can cause damage if they burst or leak
