As the COVID-19 pandemic is still a crisis we are all facing, people are embracing cleaning habits while being stuck inside. In fact, cleaning has become a hobby for many. And that cleaning includes people’s plumbing as well. The reality is, to properly clean all the plumbing within your home, there are some key things to keep in mind. Here are just a few of the best cleaning practices you can begin to make that’ll ensure you make the most out of your quarantine.
Cleaning All The Drains
Most of the drain clogs people experience within their home typically revolve around gunk and grime. In fact, clogs don’t just happen all at once — they take a significant amount of time to actually build up. The reality is, making sure you clear out all that gunk earlier rather than later can alleviate plumbing issues down the line.
Cleaning All Your Traps
Just like drains, traps must be cleaned effectively and efficiently to avoid plumbing dilemmas in the long run. In fact, when referring to the “trap”, we refer to the curved pipe that is under every single sink out there. This trap is where most of the gunk can accumulate. Fortunately for many who are stuck at home, removing and cleaning the trap is incredibly easy to do. It’s easy to remove and replace the trap beneath your sink which provides you with the ability to effectively and efficiently clean your plumbing while stuck inside.
Cleaning All Your Showerheads
It really isn’t your imagination — over time, your showerhead may begin to work less effectively than it once did. In fact, over time, there are many issues you can experience with your plumbing overall. That being said, your showerhead is usually the problem with the water pressure of your shower. Ultimately, it might just need a proper cleaning. Doing so can help you finally enjoy the shower once again.
