Damaged Sewer Lines Are Expensive for Homeowners
Most homeowners don’t realize that they have a sewer line issue until it’s too late. Over time, sewer lines deteriorate, crack, collapse or become obstructed. Sewer backup can be costly and that’s why PeopleService is dedicated to educating customers. Here are three tips to help homeowners avoid problems!
- Watch what you put down your drains.
Avoid putting these foods down your drain: grease, cooking oils, sauces, fibrous vegetables such as celery, lettuce or onion peels, as well as pasta, potatoes and rice. Also, coffee grounds and egg shells are equally dangerous to put down your drains. Always throw food remnants in the trash can, never down the drain!
- Toilet paper should be the only paper product flushed down a toilet.
Paper towels, feminine products, diapers and “flushable” wipes should never be flushed down a toilet because they don’t disintegrate like toilet paper does.
- Clean drains regularly.
Avoid the use of crystal or chemical drain cleaners, keep drains free of clogs by monthly flushing one cup of baking soda followed by one cup of white vinegar and warm water.
