In our community, dealing with clogged bathroom drains can be a major annoyance. Fortunately, most bathroom drain blockages can be easily resolved using common tools such as a plunger or a metal coat hanger. If the blockage is deep within the pipelines, however, you can rely on our specialized assistance to resolve the issue.

Preventing Bathroom Clogs

Our proactive approach to preventing bathroom clogs is designed to keep your daily routine running as smoothly as possible. Here are some easy ways to prevent clogs in your sinks, showers, and toilets:

  • Limit Toilet Flushing: It is critical to limit toilet flushing to toilet paper and human waste and to avoid disposing of any other items, including tissues.
  • Install Hair Screens: We recommend installing hair screens to prevent hair from entering and clogging your shower and sink drains.
  • Address Slow Drains: If you notice a slow-draining sink or shower, please contact us. We can promptly employ boiling water to clear out potential obstructions.

Clogged Toilet

We advise against using harsh chemicals to clear toilet clogs because these substances can harm the pipes and the entire sewage system. In the event of a toilet clog, our team is equipped to handle the situation. To deal with the situation, we have the necessary tools, including effective plungers. There are various plunger types available, but we will use the one that is best suited to your specific problem:

  • Cup Plungers: These are highly effective for clearing sink, tub, and floor drain blockages.
  • Flange Plungers: When faced with a toilet clog, we opt for a flange plunger to ensure optimal suction.
  • Accordion Plungers: Given their limitations, we avoid using accordion plungers as they are not as effective.

Clogged Tub and Shower Drains

Hair clogging tub and shower drains is a common cause of blockages. The stopper mechanism attracts hair washed down the drain, slowing drainage. Using specialized tools, we remove the screen cover and stopper and extract the accumulated hair. If the problem persists, use hot water to dissolve the soap residue and remove any remaining hair.

Clogged Bathroom Sink

Bathroom sinks can become clogged for a variety of reasons, including hair, beard trimmings, hair products, makeup, and soap scum. This is another area where we have expertise. Sink blockages are most commonly caused by the stopper mechanism or the P trap, which is a curved pipe beneath the drain. We expertly remove the stopper and use appropriate tools to clear the obstruction. If the P trap requires attention, we carefully remove a section of pipe to clean it thoroughly.
