If a drain is slow, making funny noises or not draining properly, you should get your drains inspected right away, before any real damage occurs. To try to mitigate clogs, be smart and practice the following tips. Try to avoid putting cooking grease down the drain. Also, put any coffee grounds in the trash and not down the drain.
