Regular drain maintenance will help keep clogs and blockages to a minimum.

One of your favorite things to do is stroll in the green markets to buy local, fresh produce and sample baked and other goodies. You’re diligent about coming home and rinsing off the produce and getting it ready to be eaten or included in recipes. But sometimes you wonder if the dirt and other stuff you wash off the vegetables somehow contributes to clogs in your kitchen sink or drain.

Perhaps, perhaps not. What is clear is that clogs or blockages can form at any time. And sometimes it’s not so clear what caused the clog. The good news, according to, is that many clogs can be prevented with drain maintenance.

“Good habits and basic maintenance can help prevent those dreaded clogs. First, don’t tempt fate by dumping food in the sink or pouring grease down the drain. Put food and coffee grounds in the trash, and let grease cool and then put it in a container and throw it away,” says.

“Keep sink strainers in place — they’re there for a reason — and clean them frequently. If you have a garbage disposal, be sure to run cold water while you’re grinding up food scraps. If you don’t use enough water, you may encourage food particles to build up in the drain.”

If, in spite of everything, you do get a clog or blockage that you can’t handle, then call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
