Clean your drains

Most clogged drains don’t occur all at once, it builds up some debris inside your drain pipes over time. Clearing out early will help you prevent unwanted future clog with your drains. We suggest regularly cleaning out your sink, shower, and tub drains even if they don’t really seem clogged. And now it’s the best time! 

Clean your traps

Traps are easy to remove and clean. The trap is the curved pipe beneath every sink that connects the drainpipe to the sewer pipe. The curve of a trap is meant to retain some of the water you flush down the drain. 

Clean your showerheads

Over time, scale build-up, minerals, and other gunk may clog up your showerhead’s nozzles. This happens more frequently when your home has hard water in it.

Clean mold out of shower grout

Mold spores are everywhere, which means mold can easily spread inside your home that is conducive to its growth. It grows in a dark, humid environment, particularly in bathroom showers. If it gets worse, it could even have a damaging effect on your health.
