It's important to be mindful of what you put down your drain to avoid clogs and other plumbing issues. Here are some things you should never put down your drain:
NO Grease and oils: Cooking oils, fats, and grease should never be poured down the drain. They can solidify and cause clogs in your pipes.
NO Coffee grounds: Coffee grounds can accumulate in your pipes and cause clogs over time. Instead, dispose of them in the trash or use them in your garden as compost.
NO Eggshells: While they may seem harmless, eggshells can stick to the inside of your pipes and cause blockages.
NO Fruit peels and pits: Fruit peels and pits can get caught in your pipes and cause clogs. Dispose of them in the trash or use them in your compost.
NO Pasta and rice: These starchy foods can expand in your pipes and cause blockages.
NO Non-biodegradable items: Items such as paper towels, wipes, feminine hygiene products, and dental floss should never be flushed down the toilet as they do not break down easily and can cause clogs in your pipes.
NO Chemicals: Harsh chemicals, such as drain cleaners and bleach, can damage your pipes and harm the environment. Instead, use natural alternatives or call a professional plumber for assistance.
