Drain Care

Food and grease can coat the drain pipes and form blockages that can lead to backed-up sinks and possible flooding.
Here are a few tips on how you can keep your drains clear and help avoid water damage issues.
 
  • Don't put ANY food snaps or cooking grease down the drain, in your garbage
    disposal or dishwasher.

     

  • Scrape ALL food waste in the trash or compost bin.
     

  • Wipeout all pots, pans or plates with a paper towel and put into the trash.
     

  • Pour excess oil and grease into a container and place in trash or take to an oil recycling center.
     

  • Place a fine-mesh strainer in your sink drain to catch all food bits.
