Blocked drains can be very inconvenient to everyone in your household; however, after unblocking, it’s vital you know just how to avoid any reoccurrence. In order to prevent drain blockages in future, you’ll need to know what can be poured down the sink and what should be disposed of by other means. Solid food, grease, cooking fat and meat juices are just some of the common culprits of blocked drains. Avoid the temptation to pour hot oil, fat or grease down the sink; instead, allow any of these to cool and solidify, then dispose of properly. The same applies to solid food and other non liquid substances.
Also, ensure your drain strainer is always plugged in to help separate the tiny bits of solid from any liquid that should go down the sink.
