Drain Cleaning | FAQs

What Should You Do When You Have a Clog?

While you may become accustomed to slow-moving drains over time, this is a sign of a major clog in your system. If ignored, the clog will continue to grow. This can lead to repeat clogs in your system, as well as pipe ruptures and other plumbing emergencies.

Avoid Drain Cleaning Chemicals

When you have a clog, you should avoid even the most popular DIY methods. While a plunger may be safe to use on a clog, chemical drain cleaners are not. The chemicals inside these plastic bottles can damage your drain and pipelining. These chemical solutions only provide temporary relief to your clog. More often than not, the clog will reappear even after you thought it was cleared away.

Can Clog Drains Be Avoided?

Yes, there are proactive measures you can take to help avoid clogged drains, we recommend:

  • Never Flushing "Flushable" Wipes Down The Toilet - The packaging may say "flushable" but these wipes will wreck your drain pipes. The only things you should flush down your toilet are human waste and toilet paper.
  • Tossing Food And Coffee In The Trash - Dump food and coffee grounds in your trash, not the kitchen sink. These can collect in your drain pipes over time and clog your kitchen sink.
  • Covering Drains With Mesh Screens - Use mesh screens to cover your bathtubs or shower drains. These will help catch hair and soap scum. Hair and soap scum are a couple of common culprits of clogged drains.
  • Avoiding Brushing Your Teeth And/Or Flossing In The Shower - Toothpaste can harden and evenly clog your shower or bathtub drain. Floss can get stuck in your drain pipes and catch other debris. Spit out toothpaste in the bathroom sink and discard floss in the trash. It's as simple as that!

We recommend implementing these tips to help avoid a clogged drain. Having said that, clogged drains are more or less inevitable. You'll likely have a clogged drain or two at some point. But, these tips should help you prevent the frequency or severity of clogged drains.
