Clogged Drains? Contact the Plumbing Pro’s.
Everything needs cleaning. Yes, even your drains! With the amount of products that go down the kitchen, laundry room, and shower drains, it is not uncommon for residue to build up on the interior walls of the pipe and just hang in there. There are multiple signs that a homeowner can watch out for that may signal that a drain needs to be cleared. These include:
- Gurgling or bubbling sounds
- Slow drains whether it be consistent or constant
- Particles coming back up in the sink/shower
- Frequent clogging of the drain
The best way to prevent clogged drains is to avoid letting the wrong things down. For kitchen drains, it’s important to keep oils and grease, potato peels, eggshells, pasta, and fibrous vegetables out. For showers, hair, sand and dirt are often the culprits. Taking these precautions goes a long way. However, if your home has had multiple owners, you can expect the drains might be due for a cleaning or replacement at some point.
