There are various ways you can do to keep the environment around the house clean and healthy. One of them is to maintain the cleanliness of existing water channels in the house. Especially during the rainy season, it is not uncommon for the drains to become clogged, dirty, causing an unpleasant odor. Take the following steps to keep drains clean:
Routinely clean dirty drains
The first thing that of course needs to be done is to check the drains in the house and clean them regularly. Clean all drains from various dirt and silt that can cause bad odors. Not only that, also clean up the rubbish used by leaves and dry twigs that obstruct the flow of water during the rainy season. Routinely clean dirty drains at least 2 or 3 months.
Make a gutter that flows to the ground
Make sure the gutters in the house drain the water in the right direction, for example to porous areas such as parks or con-block roads. Because flowing water from gutters into waterways directly or onto the asphalt during the rainy season can actually trigger flooding. Meanwhile, if the water goes directly to the ground, it will be more easily absorbed and will not cause puddles in the waterways.
Avoid throwing garbage into drains
Disposing of garbage in its place is the most important way to keep the water lines in the house clean. Unfortunately, there are still many people who are lazy and use drains as trash cans. Start with yourself and make it a habit to throw garbage in its place so that it doesn’t cause problems such as clogged drains to flooding.
Dispose of waste chemical waste properly
Of course, household activities cannot be separated from various chemical wastes. For example, water left over from bath soap, detergent, dishwashing cleaners and bleaches, which are chemical waste waste and can disrupt the ecosystem around the house. Especially if the water channel in your house flows into the river. So, from now on try to minimize the use of chemicals and dispose of them in the right place.
