Denver Plumbing Tips: Do’s and Don’ts of Fat, Oil, and Grease Disposal
When fat, oil, and grease (FOG) is poured down the drain, they start to accumulate inside your pipes; and after a while, they clog your home’s drainage system. They can even end up clogging Denver’s main sewer lines, thus adding to the maintenance cost of the local government. To avoid this, have your drains inspected and maintained regularly by reliable plumbing services in Denver. With that in mind, here are a few useful tips on how you can keep your drains FOG-free. Do’s Do dispose of FOG in the garbage. Wipe your plates, pots, and pans clean with paper towel before washing them in the sink. It is not recommended to throw FOG and the soiled paper towels in a compost heap as this can attract rodents and prolong the composting process. A backyard composting bin will be safer.
