Like Saving Money? Find Out What You Should NEVER Put Down the Drain

What’s one of the most preventable issues a home or a place of business could have? Grease-clogged drains! These problems tend to cost thousands of dollars to fix, but all it takes is a bit of extra care and attention to make sure it doesn’t become an issue by not allowing fats, oils, or grease to go down the drain in the first place.

What happens when you do wind up putting a fat, oil, or grease down the drain? The vegetable oil and animal fats that were once used in your cooking may very well be liquid after it’s been used, but these liquids can harden inside of your pipes. Depending on how your waste lines are connected, a blockage in your drain won’t just spell trouble for your kitchen, but it can also affect any lines leading to the bathroom or laundry area.

You might be tempted to try to unclog the blockage yourself if this ever occurs, but your efforts will more than likely cause you more problems. That’s why it’s best to leave these things to the professionals at Ace Grease! After all, serious blockages and damaged pipes can be incredibly costly for your home or place of business.

So what should you do with that leftover grease instead of pouring it down the drain? Here are a few options. You can pour the cooled grease in a recyclable container and recycle it with the caring experts at Ace Grease. After this is done, wipe off any excess grease on your pots and pans with a paper towel and throw the paper towel in the trash. Be sure to put any food scraps in the trash, not the garbage disposal, and rinse your plates in cool water before you wash them.

To keep your kitchen drains in tip-top shape, we recommend pouring bleach down the drain once a week and periodically filling the sink with hot water before allowing it to drain. This helps ensure that your drain is clearing and is functioning at its best.

Remember that we at Ace Grease will pay you for your recycled cooking oil! Just bring it on down to our location, or call us at 1-800-473-2733. We will come to your location to pick up used cooking oil in bulk as well!
