Why does my drain clog?
A common question Green Apple Mechanical NJ commonly gets relates to clogged drains.
Generally, clogged drains occur because people are not careful, particularly in the kitchen, about what goes down the drain.
For example, make sure to avoid:
- pouring cooking oil (or fat) down the drain.
- putting poultry skins (chicken, turkey), starchy (potato peels, rice), stringy (celery) or fibrous waste (coffee grinds, corn husks) down the drain.
Also, take some common sense and proactive steps, such as:
- have the water running when you use the garbage disposal.
- let the garbage disposal “catch up” after waste is poured down the drain.
