Simply brushing your teeth before leaving the house in the morning can quickly be complicated if the bathroom sink clogs. You have a million things to do when you are in your home and having clog-free drains is important to getting those tasks done efficiently.

Our highly-trained and professional plumbers can easily diagnose and repair your drain clog, regardless of where it is located in your home.
• Kitchen: Clogs in the kitchen can be exceptionally stubborn, this is even truer if the kitchen is equipped with a garbage disposal. When there is a sink full of dishes that need to be washed, very little thought is given to what is being rinsed down the drain. Things like celery, papaya, and certain types of squash are very stringy and, when mixed with soap or grease, can create a thick plaster material that will stick to the inside walls of your pipes.
• Tub and Shower: The number one cause of clogs in the tub and shower drain is hair. Unfortunately, adults and children alike lose a great deal of hair during bathing and all of it rinses right down the drain. When hair rinses down the drain it tangles into a ball, and then soap and shampoo rinse down the drain and mix with the hairball creating a stubborn clog.
• Bathroom Sink: Probably the most common location for a clog, the bathroom sink receives toothpaste, hair products, hair, and other health and beauty products at least two times per day from every member of your household. All of these things mixed together in the drain will quickly lead to a clog.
• Toilet: While it is rare, toilets do get clogged now and again by small objects being accidently flushed. A more common problem is heavy volumes of toilet paper and non-flushable paper products being sent down the drain. Things like diapers, feminine napkins, and baby wipes should never be flushed down the toilet.
To reduce the chances of drain clogs in your home, make sure that you and your family members are thoughtful about what is rinsed down the drains. In your kitchen, keep a list of things to never rinse into the garbage disposal. In the bathroom, add drain covers that are designed to catch hair and keep it from rinsing down the drain. If you have little ones, child-proof your toilet so they are not able to flush any toy or other small items.
