Immediately repair leaky taps - this will prevent further damage to other fixtures and fittings.
Don't use your toilet as a BIN. Flushing solid waste items [cotton buds,facial tissues etc] down the toilet is a fast route to causing a blocked drain. Keep a waste bin in the bathroom and use that instead.
Run hot water down the drain on a regular basis [weekly] - this will help prevent drain blockages and keep the drain free flowing.
Fit strainers to the plug holes in sinks, baths and showers. This will prevent most debris from entering the drain [such as matted hair or broken soap]. Make sure you empty out the strainers when they are full.
To remove scale build up from a shower head [reducing flow and looking unpleasant] fill a plastic bag with vinegar and tie it around the shower head - this will dissolve the mineral deposit.
The biggest piece of advice we can give, is that if you suspect a drainage problem, ACT NOW. You can save yourself a lot of unsavory aggravation and expense by catching a drainage problem early and dealing with it before it becomes more serious.
