A clogged drain is unfortunately a pretty common annoyance that homeowners deal with from time to time. One of the biggest ways to avoid a clogged drain, whether in your kitchen, bathroom, toilet, or basement is being cautious of what is being put down these drains. While avoiding all potentially damaging items from entering your drains at all times may be impossible, it’s important to be aware and conscious of these unsafe items so you can monitor them. Beware of items marked “flushable” and try to avoid foreign objects from entering your drains at all times.

There are some specific items to be aware of based on the specific area/drain within your home. For instance, food will likely not come in contact with your bathroom drain, and hair will likely not be an issue in your kitchen sink drain. Below we discuss some things to avoid to prevent a clogged drain specific to the areas within your home.
