Each drain in your home is used several times throughout the day by various members of your family. Did you know your home has drains in all of these areas:

  • Kitchen sink
  • Bathroom sink
  • Shower
  • Bathtub
  • Toilet
  • Laundry room or utility sink
  • Floor of garage or shop

With all of these drains being used more than once per day, it’s no wonder that clogs develop over time!

Each of these drains works to leverage gravity and move used water and waste materials out of the fixture and to the main sewer line. But, along the way corrosion can build up and clogs can form, which will both slow and stop the movement of anything through your pipes.

The team at Mr. Rooter San Marco are highly-trained in all types of drain cleaning and drain repair. We carry with us all of the necessary tools to manage any kind of drain clog. And, we can provide you with outstanding drain cleaning and drain repair services 24/7.

Kitchen Drains & Clogs

The main location for a clog to develop in the kitchen is in the kitchen sink. And, not only in the drain but, in the garbage disposal. In fact, your garbage disposal and dishwasher both connect to the same drain pipe to carry used water and waste away from your kitchen sink.

This set-up provides a better chance that all food particles will be ground into small enough pieces that they easily move through the drain. However, this is highly dependent on the materials that are put into the disposal, drain, and dishwasher.

Some ways that kitchen clogs can develop are:

  • Putting dishes into the dishwasher that haven’t been thoroughly rinsed
  • Putting grease or animal fat into the garbage disposal or kitchen drain
  • Rinsing coffee grounds or other corroding foods into the garbage disposal
  • Not rinsing the filter inside of the dishwasher periodically
  • Putting dense foods like vegetable peelings or large amounts of starch into the kitchen drain

The best way to prevent a clog in your kitchen sink is to avoid these types of behavior. However, with time and use, clogs will happen regardless. And, when you do develop a clog in your kitchen sink, rest-assured that you can simply contact Mr. Rooter of San Marcos for outstanding drain cleaning and drain repair services!

You never have to worry about being charged more for a late night or weekend call, because we charge the same no matter what. And, we will always provide you with up-front pricing, so you know just how much your drain cleaning or drain repair service will cost.

Bathroom Drains & Clogs

The room with the highest number of drains in your home is the bathroom. This is where the bathtub, shower, toilet, and sink drains are all concentrated in one area. And, sometimes the bathtub and shower are two different drains.

While some members of your household can get away with not using the kitchen sink or dishwasher in a day, everyone uses the bathroom every day. So, the drains in this room are probably the most susceptible to drains clogs.

But, not to worry, the highly-skilled team at Mr. Rooter of San Marcos knows all about bathroom drains and the clogs they develop. We have the training and expertise to easily diagnose a bathroom sink that is gurgling or a toilet that is not draining properly.

Our team member will arrive quickly and with the right tools to address any situation that might be going on in your bathroom drains.

Some of the ways that bathroom drain clogs occur include:

  • Flushing non-flushable paper products down the toilet
  • Using shaving cream in the bathroom sink
  • Using a lot of health and beauty products in the shower
  • A rogue child’s toy flushed down the toilet
  • Not using a bathroom in your home on a regular basis

To avoid a drain clog in your bathroom, it is important to avoid these behaviors. Flushing dental floss, q-tips, and dental floss down the toilet can quickly cause a clog to form in the drain or main pipe.

At Mr. Rooter of San Marcos, our expert plumbers have years of training and experience when it comes to residential and commercial drain cleaning and drain repair services. If you have a bathroom sink that has suddenly put a kink in your morning routine, a shower drain that left you standing in inches of used shower water, or a toilet in your public bathroom that is turning your guests away - don’t hesitate to contact us to get your drain cleaning or drain repair services done right!
