What Makes Your Drains So Important?

Your plumbing system is complicated, and your drains may seem like a small part of it. While that may be true, your drains perform an important job day in and day out. A clogged drain will ensure you notice your drains, but you can depend on the team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Amarillo to perform drain cleaning services for clogged drains. The only job your drains have is to carry wastewater away from your home. That wastewater contains particles of debris, including dirt, dust, soap, food, and more. Those particles slow the flow of water and result in clogged drains. Don’t ignore a clogged drain because it can lead to back-ups in bathtubs, sinks, and toilets while causing foul odors and property damage. A problem with one drain in your house can result in problems with other drains, so be sure to contact us at the earliest sign of a clogged drain.

Signs You May Have a Clogged Drain

Sometimes you’ll notice a clogged drain right away, but other signs can be less obvious unless you know what to look for. You likely have a clogged drain if water gets backed up or stops flowing. Our professional plumbers perform drain cleaning services for clogged drains and begin with a thorough inspection before crafting the best solution to solve the problem. Schedule an appointment with us if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Foul odors coming from drains
  • Backed up toilets
  • Puddles of water near laundry appliances, showers, sinks, or bathtubs
  • Soggy areas of your lawn
  • Sinks that drain slowly and make gurgling noises
  • Bubbling sounds coming from toilets

We Clean & Repair All Types of Drains

All your home’s drains perform the same basic function, but each type of drain is different. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Amarillo offers residential clogged drain cleaning services for all types of drains in your home, including the following:

  • Bathroom Drains – It’s easy for your bathroom drains to become clogged from a combination of hair and all the household products used in the room, such as soap and toothpaste. We recommend installing a drain cover for your bathroom sinks and bathtub to prevent hair from going down the drains. Run hot water while brushing your teeth to help prevent that toothpaste from hardening inside the pipes.
  • Kitchen Drains – Cooking and washing dishes can easily lead to clogged kitchen drains due to grease, food particles, and oils. Try to avoid putting any oil or grease down your kitchen sink because they can harden inside the plumbing pipes. Avoid putting any bones, meat, or fibrous vegetables down your garbage disposal.
  • Floor Drains – You may not pay much attention to your home’s floor drains, but they can get clogged easily. You can often find floor drains in basements, garages, and laundry rooms. Your floor drain can get clogged by dust, dirt, leaves, and other debris. A clogged floor drain can cause damage to your flooring, so be sure you have the drains cleaned out from time to time.

Trying to Unclog Drains Yourself

We recommend leaving drain unclogging to our professional plumbers, especially if you have a significant clog such as one caused by intruding tree roots. However, there are a few things homeowners can do to find out if they have a clog or try to clear a minor clog as a DIY solution. Be sure to give us a call if the following steps are ineffective or if you feel more comfortable leaving everything to our team:

  • Prepare a kettle or pot of hot water if you have a slow-draining sink. Use the hot water to clear your clogged drain. This method may work if the clog was caused by hardened oils or fats.
  • Carefully pour the hot water into the drain after all or most of the water has drained from the sink.
  • Schedule routine drain inspections and cleanings as a preventative measure.
  • Use a plunger and snake drain to attempt to unclog your drains. Start with your plunger, which can relocate the clog to the top of the drain. Next, use the snake to pull the clog out of the pipe.
  • Throw away the clogged material in the trash because flushing it back down the pipes will result in another clog.
