3 THINGS YOU DON’T WANT IN YOUR DRAINS
Have you ever heard that you’re supposed to pour bleach down your drains regularly to keep them clean? This can do much more harm than good. Bleach is extremely corrosive and can cause a lot of damage to your home’s pipes. It can also react with other substances in your drain and cause further clogs and damage.
This is a tough one! How easy is it to just turn on the garbage disposal and get rid of all your leftover dinner without filling up the garbage can? Unfortunately, this is not at all what garbage disposals are made for. They are only designed to handle scraps that fall down the drain during dishwashing, not entire meals. Plus, not all foods are created equally and the garbage disposal will have a harder time shredding. Doing this will cause the blades to become dull and eventually break down, causing a costly repair.
3. KITTY LITTER
For all of our cat owners that buy “flushable” litter, you probably want to avoid actually doing that. Even though it says it’s flushable it can easily clogs your drains. Flushing clumps can get stuck and back up your pipes, especially if they’re flushed too close back to back. Another danger is the contaminants that pet waste contain. Anytime you flush pet waste down the toilet you are introducing bacteria and pollution into the waterways.
