Yes, there are steps you can take to help prevent blocking your drains. Here are some tips to help avoid blockages:

  1. Be mindful of what you flush down the toilet – Avoid flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper down the toilet. Items such as wet wipes, feminine hygiene products, and paper towels can easily cause blockages.
  2. Use a drain strainer – Place a drain strainer over the plug hole in your sink or shower to catch hair, soap scum, and other debris that can accumulate and cause blockages.
  3. Dispose of cooking grease properly – Never pour cooking oil or grease down the drain, as it can solidify and create blockages.
  4. Regularly clean your drains – Pouring boiling water down your drains can help loosen any buildup and keep them clear. You can also use a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to help clear any blockages.

Despite taking these preventative measures, blockages can still occur. If you experience a persistent blockage, it’s best to call Safeguard plumbers to safely and effectively remove the blockage. 🚰💦👨‍🔧
