The Important Job of Residential Drains
The drains throughout your home are constantly working to carry away wastewater. When water goes down your drain, it’s filled with dust, food, soap, and other debris. You may already have a clog when you notice signs of slower water flow. Our service professionals know the best ways to effectively clog your drains to help relieve your home of backups and odors.
Know the Signs of a Clogged Drain
A clogged drain needs immediate attention to help prevent it from becoming a significant plumbing issue. The most common signs of a clogged drain include the following:
- Pools of water in your drains
- Slow-moving drains
- Sewage odors near drains
- Gurgling water when you flush the toilet
- The smell of rotten food near the kitchen drains
Servicing Your Residential Drains
Our service professionals understand a drain isn’t usually at the top of your mind. When one gets clogged, it can throw off your day. We are extensively trained to handle all the drains in your home. Your bathroom drains often get clogged trying to force down hair, soap, and toothpaste. We recommend installing a drain cover to help catch debris. The drains in your kitchen often get coated with oils and fats, so it’s helpful to avoid ever disposing of those liquids down the drain. Many people have floor drains in their basement, garage, or laundry room. Debris and dirt naturally flow into those drains, causing clogs. Our team will determine the best technique to unclog any drain in your home.
How to Approach Minor Clogs
The Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Nevada County service professionals can help you to approach unclogging minor plumbing problems. We advise using our preventative plumbing maintenance services to help catch problems early and keep your pipes clean. It’s critical to stay away from using store-bought chemical drain cleaners because they can do more harm than good to your drains. The clog usually returns when you use over-the-counter toxic concoctions. The easy ways to repair a minor clog include:
- Pour boiling water down your clogged drain to loosen hardened food and oils.
- Plunge your drain with a plunger, then use a drain snake to pull out the debris clogging your drain.
- Call our service professionals if these attempts do not unclog your pipes.
