When the fats, oils, and grease from cooking go down your kitchen drains, they can stick to and build up inside your home or sewer pipes. This build-up, especially when combined with food scraps, can block pipes, causing a sewer backup. Sewer backups can damage your or your neighbor’s property, threaten public health, and harm the environment. Follow these clean-up tips to protect your home and sewer pipes from blockages and backups.
