We’ve all been there. You’ve got a pile of dishes, your sink is greasy, you’ve got a clogged drain and there’s a smell you just can’t quite get rid of. If you’re like us, you don’t want to make that mistake again. That’s why we’ve compiled this short list of things you can do to keep your kitchen sink and avoid hiring costly plumbing services for grease disposal or to clear your clogged drains.
1. Dispose of Used Grease Properly
One of the leading causes of sewer backup and clogged drains in the United States is improper grease disposal. Instead of pouring the grease down the drain, you can pour it in a jar or disposable container once it’s cooled a bit. From there, you can throw the container out, or let the grease solidify and scrape it into the trash. This will avoid your grease causing a plumber to be called.
2. Keep Up With Dirty Dishes
