What Drains Are in My Home?
All the drains in your home have the same purpose and function. We have years of experience providing solutions for every type of residential drain problem and work hard to offer long-term solutions for homeowners. Your drains can clog for a variety of reasons, and it can help to know which drains are vulnerable to what type of issues so you can prevent them in the future. Below, we’ve described some common drains in your home and the reasons they clog:
Bathroom Drains – The main culprits of clogged bathroom drains include soap residue, hair, and toothpaste. Installing drain covers is a simple solution for collecting loose hair before it goes down your shower drain. We also recommend running hot water when you brush your teeth to ensure it doesn't harden and build up in your pipes.
Kitchen Drains – Kitchen drains can easily become clogged by food, grease, and oil build-up. Having a garbage disposal can reduce your risk of getting clogs, but it’s important to avoid putting certain things down your kitchen sink drain, including fibrous vegetables, meat, bones, grease, and oil.
Floor Drains – Floor drains are found in basements, garages, and laundry rooms and can become clogged by dust, dirt, and leaves over time. It’s important to clear these drains of any clogs before they cause damage to your floors.
Helpful Tips on How to Fix Your Clogged Drain
Before calling a licensed plumber, you might want to try a few things to clear the clog yourself. If you're experiencing a clogged drain in your home, Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of Broward County provides a list of simple ways to fix it:
- Let your sink completely drain, and then pour boiled water down it. Boiled water helps clear clogs caused by hardened fats and oils because the heat helps break them up.
- You can also try clearing residential clogs with a plunger and drain snake. Sink plungers are small and easy to manage, so you can use one to pull a clog close to your drain opening to get better access to remove it. After plunging the drain opening, you can use a snake to pull out the obstruction from your pipe.
- If you've tried the above suggestions and still have a clogged drain, it's time to call in a team of professionals. Standard drain snakes aren’t effective when major obstructions are blocking your pipes, including tree roots and stubborn clogs. Our team can offer more extensive plumbing solutions to clear your clogged drain effectively.
