If there is one thing any business or commercial property owner doesn't want, it is clogs. Not only do they damage the plumbing system, but they can also cause a lot of trouble in the future. Unfortunately, not many people know how to prevent clogs in commercial drains. So, throughout this article, we will cover exactly that and how New Era Plumbing & Septic can help.


Performing Regular Maintenance & Cleaning

Maintenance is the most important method for maintaining the longevity and effectiveness of any equipment. The same concept applies to drains. If you want to prevent commercial drains from being clogged, you must have a regular maintenance plan. This can include inspections, drain cleaning, or using drain water jetting for complex problems. For a commercial property, following the plan at least once every six months is recommended. If you need professional help, call New Era Plumbing & Septic today.

Using A Drain Strainer

If you have a business or a commercial property and are looking for ways to prevent clogs in the drains, drain strainers are one of the most effective and affordable methods. Although this item may seem like it's not doing much work, it can help trap any hair, food particles, and other solids that may block the drain opening. You or a cleaner can help clear out the stuck items regularly, like once every day. This will significantly help you reduce the chances of getting clogs in your commercial drains.

Cleaning Drains & Plunging Them

If you experience complete or partial clogs in your drains, you can also take action yourself. One of the most recommended methods is to clean it using a drain snake to reach as far as possible to clear any clogs or using baking soda and vinegar. Using harsh chemicals to clear clogs in your drains is not recommended. The chemical can be corrosive and cause damage to your pipes over time. If you have a plunge available, you can also try that method to clear any clogs.

Being Mindful of What Goes Down The Drains

The last way to prevent clogs is to be mindful of what goes down the drains and inform others. Without knowing, people usually throw away certain items down the drain, which is strictly advised against. These items include but are not limited to feminine hygiene products, coffee grounds, large amounts of paper products, cleaning products, and most of the flushable wipes. If there is even a partial clog in the drains, throwing these items and many more will cause the clog to develop and damage the system over time. If you would like to learn more about what shouldn't go down the drain, contact a dependable plumber.
