Our team of highly-skilled and experienced plumbers can provide you with superior drain diagnostic and repair services, regardless of how clogged your drain is or which drain in your home is having the problem.
• Tub and Shower: In the tub and shower drain the most common cause of a clog is hair. When we bathe, we lose several strands of hair and that hair is subsequently rinsed down the drain. When products like soap and shampoo are rinsed down the drain and mix with the hair it creates a material that is much like cement and will cause a substantial clog in the drain.
• Kitchen: The kitchen drains are worked much harder than other drains in the home, especially if there is a garbage disposal involved. Most of us do not think for very long about what we are rinsing down the garbage disposal drain only that it is out of sight and out of mind. However, rinsing things like stringy fruits and vegetables or expandable foods like noodles down the kitchen drain can quickly escalate to a clogged drain.
• Toilet: Your toilet drain can easily become clogged due to non-flushable paper products and small foreign objects being flushed. Things like diapers, baby wipes, and feminine napkins should never be flushed down the toilet as they can create clogs in the drain and the toilet to overflow dirty water.
• Bathroom Sink: The bathroom sink is probably the drain that gets clogged the most often. Each member of the household uses the bathroom sink every day, at least two times per day for grooming and tooth brushing. This means that any habits like rinsing health and beauty products down the drain are repeated daily and will eventually lead to a clog.
There are steps that you can take to reduce the opportunity for clogs, this includes educating all members of your household on what should and shouldn’t be rinsed down the drain. For instance, hang a list on the refrigerator of what items should never be rinsed down the kitchen sink. This list should include a non-food items like cat litter, as well as food items that will increase the frequency of clogs.
A quick fix in the bathroom is to place covers of each drain that are designed to allow the water to rinse through but will catch hair and other large particles. By simply eliminating the opportunity for hair to rinse down your bathroom drains, you should see a dramatic decrease in the number of clogs.
