Taking daily steps to prevent drain clogs is so important. In the kitchen, this means not pouring grease, fats, or oils (including cooking oil and butter) down the drain. These products will eventually coagulate inside of the drains, and if the clog is in the drain outside of the home, then the repair can really get expensive.
Proper use of the garbage disposal is also important for preventing clogs. When using your garbage disposal, you should turn the water on before running the disposal and leave the water running for a good 15 seconds afterward to help rinse the debris through to the main line. You should also avoid putting certain foods in the disposal, including fibrous foods like banana peels and celery, as well as foods that are difficult to process, like potato peels and cucumber peels.
In the bathroom, you should reduce your use of bath oils and avoid using chemical clog removal products. You should also avoid flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper down the toilet. Things like tampons, diapers, and other garbage items will quickly cause a clog if you try to flush them.
