Tips to prevent clogged drains

Here are some tips on how to prevent future drain clogs.

Use strainers in all your drains to stop hair from going down the drain; especially in the bathroom sinks and showers. It’s much easier to clear out a strainer once a week than to unclog a drain.

Don’t let small pieces of soap go down the drain. They don’t dissolve and wash away, they actually cause the drain to clog.

Every few months, pour a cup of baking soda in the drain then add a cup of vinegar. After the mixture has set for a few minutes, rinse it with hot water.

If you have a clog use BIO-CLEAN to clean the drain. BIO-CLEAN is a blend of bacteria and enzymes that eat away the clog.

Within an hour after pouring the BIO-CLEAN bacteria into the drain, the bacteria begin to eat their way into the waste that has accumulated on the sides and top of the drain pipe. This is their natural food. They digest the waste and spread throughout your drain, cleaning it completely.
