Don’t Let Grease Go Down the Drains—Here’s Why
It can be tempting to pour grease down the drains. However, it can lead to serious problems in the long run. Even throwing a small amount of cooking oil down the sink can lead to a clogged drain and wreak havoc on your overall plumbing system. Read on as A.M. Plumbing & Rooter explains how grease can spell trouble for your drains.
Why Grease Is Harmful to Your Drains
You might think it’s fine to pour grease down the kitchen sink drain if you run hot water and pour dish soap afterward. However, grease will eventually cool and solidify somewhere in your pipes, creating a blockage. It will also trap dirt, food particles, and other debris, which may require professional drain snaking to remove.
It doesn’t just end with your plumbing system. When grease finds its way into the municipal sewer system, it can contribute to the formation of fatbergs, which is a large mass of solid waste that can cause sewage backups and overflows. It will take more than just drain cleaning in Lake Elsinore, CA, to fix this problem.
Signs of a Grease Clogs
Grease clogs often need the expertise of a local plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, to remove the gunk in your pipes. Some of the telltale signs to look out for include:
- Slow drains
- Foul odors
- Bubbling toilet
- Gurgling sounds from the drains
How to Dispose of Grease Properly
As your trusted drain cleaning company, we recommend disposing of grease in the trash bin. You may also collect fat, oil, grease first in a disposable container, then throw it once it’s full. Lastly, always wipe your plates, utensils, and pans with a kitchen towel before washing them on the sink.
Leave Drain Cleaning to the Pros
Once you notice the warning signs of drain clogs, get in touch with us immediately. We will perform an in-depth inspection to see if grease is causing the clog and recommend the best solution. Besides snaking, we may also perform hydro jetting, which uses highly pressured water up to 4,000 PSI to flush grease out of your drains while scouring your pipes clean.

I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
