Clogged drains are a problem for many Tenafly homeowners. However, there are many things you can do to stop clogs before they start, and safely maintain your drains to reduce plumbing problems. At BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating, we have the Drain Maid Maintenance Program with Biosmart, which allows us to clear drains without toxic chemicals. Call us today if you are interested in this service!
Before we describe how the BioSmart System works, we are going to go over a few different ways you can prevent drains from happening in the first place. First, be careful what you are putting down the sink. Never pour grease down the drain, and don’t flush objects like tissues or hair. If you have a garbage disposal, remember not to overload it with too much food at once, and to run the faucet before and after use. These things might seem trivial, but they are some of the main caused of clogged drains.
If your drains do clog, the Biosmart drain treatment can help clear the clog without the use of harmful chemicals. Instead of chemicals, Biosmart is composed of enzymes and bacteria which break down grease and organic matter. This is similar to how sewage treatment plants breakdown waste into material that can be absorbed into the soil, and it is a safe and environmentally friendly way of dealing with clogs. An added benefit of Biosmart is that low levels of the bacteria and enzymes will remain in your system for weeks, which will help prevent future clogs from forming. In fact, as a part of preventive drain maintenance, we recommend pouring half a cup of Biosmart every month to help keep your Tenafly plumbing system working smoothly.
