How not to dispose of your household waste

In this post we will be looking at the ways in which you should not be getting rid of the waste products in your home. If you simply flush these down the toilet or pour them into the sink, it could cause drainage problems further down the line.

If you follow this practical advice, you can avoid having to rectify the situation of a blocked sink or toilet, which can often prove to be costly. Many people do not realise that this could result in serious damage to your property.

Firstly, you should not pour oils, grease or fat down the sink as even miniscule amounts could end up solidifying in the pipes. This may not be an issue from the outset but could eventually prevent the waste water from draining into the sewer. The blockage could force the water back up the sink or toilet and cause the flooding of your home.

Another important thing to remember is that toilets are not designed to handle anything except from toilet paper and human waste. This means that personal items, nappies, cotton buds and hair are a no-no. This could not only result in a drain blockage and the flooding of your bathroom, but may also leave you with a very bad smell.
