2. Use screens or other materials that enables water to flow through smoothly without letting any solid materials from getting through.

There are a lot of inexpensive screens in the market today that you can use to cover up those drainage openings in the kitchen, in the bath tub or in your shower room. These screens can block and hold off those solid materials that could possibly clog the drainage. When you see that the screen has already a lot of solid materials in it, you can always clean it up for it to be able to function well again without interrupting the flow of water to the drainage. This is one of the easiest thing that you can in order to avoid getting your drainage blocked.

3. Do not close your faucets very tightly.

Faucet leaks are often caused by the very tight closing of the faucets. Do not do this just to stop the water from flowing since when you just position it to its normal closing position, it will already prevent the water from leaking or closing. No need to force the faucet too tight because this will cause the washers to easily wear off creating a passage way for the water to go through. This is what will cause the faucets to leak and eventually, there will come a time when you will have to replace your faucet because even when you have closed it really tight already, there will always be a leak because of the broken washers.
