How to Prevent Drain Clogs

We’ve seen countless customers clog their disposers and drains with items that should have been thrown in the trash. Garbage disposals are one of the most commonly misused appliances in the home. They’re designed to handle light food residue, and can easily become clogged when overwhelmed with excessive food waste. This will paralyze the kitchen sink pipes and result in a system that won’t drain or that drains slowly.

Below is a list of items that can clog your disposal and drain. If you mistakenly get one of these items trapped down your kitchen drain, don’t delay. Have A-1 American clear it out.

  • Bones
  • Coffee grounds
  • Corn husks
  • Onion peels
  • Celery
  • Egg shells
  • Grease
  • Fruit rinds and pits
