There are many cases of clogged drains that happen every single year and a majority of them could have been prevented. The easiest way to do this is to not put any kind of food down your sink or if you have a doubt if it should be going down your sink, just throw it away instead. It is better safe than sorry. If you find yourself with a clog in your drain from food being put down your drain, you can try a few things like putting special drain cleaning chemicals down your sink or even trying to get it out with a wire hanger. If these options do not work, call a plumber and they will help you get it taken care of quickly and efficiently.

Don’t Put These In Your Sink

Rice or starchy foods – If you have a habit of throwing old rice or food that is easily absorbing water, you need to rethink it. These kinds of foods hold water and expand. When they expand, they tend to clog up drains and are not easily removed by you. You also want to stay clear of putting coffee grounds, egg shells, potato skins, and grease down your sink as well.
