There are ways you can prevent common sewer problems from happening in your home. We discuss these below:

Use Drain Screens

When your drains are slow to drain water, it can create a problem with your sewer line. Using drain screens in your kitchen and bathroom sinks, shower and tub can prevent food particles, hair and soap scum from getting down the drain. Clogged drains can lead to serious issues over time that will require professional sewer repair services in Milan, MI, so it’s best to prevent them from happening in the first place

Clean Your Drains Regularly

While it’s wise to periodically clean your drains, you should avoid using chemical drain cleaners to do so. Instead, a natural combination of baking soda and vinegar is better and safer. Ensuring that your drains are kept clean can help prevent the need for sewer line repair.

Use the Toilet Correctly

Your toilet can easily get clogged if you flush everything and anything down. Avoid flushing anything other than waste and toilet paper down the toilet to prevent clogs. Clogged toilets can lead to massive backups, and depending on the damage we may have to replace sewer line to restore your system’s functionality.

Dispose of Grease and Oil Properly 

Improper disposal of grease and oil can do a number on your pipes and cause a sewer backup. Avoid the need for emergency sewer pipe line repair by pouring grease and oil into a jar, letting it cool and harden in the refrigerator and then throwing it away in the trash.
