How Often Should I Clean My Drains?

Most people have no idea just how often drains should be cleaned, and in fact, most don’t give their drains any attention until they end up with the problem of a blocked drain. Cleaning your drains should be something that is done routinely as maintenance, to prevent any blockages from even happening. Prevention is better than a blocked drain!

Cleaning your drains monthly is usually sufficient enough, however you can choose to do this weekly or fortnightly if you wish, the main thing is that it is done on a regular basis. It is easiest if you incorporate drain cleaning into your cleaning schedule, so that it gets ticked off with other jobs, and you know that it is taken care of.

Cleaning your drains with a solution of soda crystals and boiling water, or bicarb of soda, vinegar and boiling water is something that is gentle on the environment, while still being efficient enough to keep your drains flowing freely if done on a regular basis. This is also the only way to avoid having to use harsh chemicals and needing the expensive services of a plumber.

As well as carrying out this drain cleaning maintenance, pouring boiling water straight from the kettle, down the plug holes in the home, is also a great way of keeping the plumbing clear on a regular basis. These things are all worth doing on a regular basis as part of your home cleaning routine, preventing problems happening further down the line.
