Better Flow Rate
Periodically cleaning your drains increases their flow rate. As a drain becomes more clogged, it gathers even more debris. Hair, grease, and other main culprits can build up over time. This can lead to bad odors, backed up drains, flooding, burst pipes, and other problems. A slow drain can also be very frustrating to use.

A drain that is free of dirt and clogs helps you to get more done in the household, especially in the kitchen area.
Habits That Help
You can help prevent clogged drains in kitchens by running hot water down the drain. This helps melt any grease or fats from washing dishes. Avoid pouring pure grease or fat down a drain. Scrape it out before you wash. Avoid trying to cram chucks of food down a drain. A good drain strainer in every sink in a household can go a long way to preventing clogged drains. Make sure that you clean your strainer often to avoid odors or dishwater back up.
