Many times when we think about drains in a home, we think about the sink in the kitchen. In reality though, there are so many drains in a home, and if something happens and all get clogged, a home is left pretty much at a stand still! Let's talk about the different drains and the possible issues associated with each.
A big culprit in kitchen sink clogs is one that can easily be avoided...pouring fats, oils, and greases down the drain instead of in the trash. You will not want to use chemical agents in your sink, so if vinegar and baking soda don't work, it is time to call in a plumbing professional. Side note: don’t put coffee grinds, bones, eggshells, papers, and fruit peels down the drain in the kitchen sink. If you do, this will create a problem that may also necessitate a call to Mr. Rooter!
Dealing with a clogged toilet is capital "G" gross...we get it. If you have kids, then you have dealt with things that typically shouldn't get flushed, getting flushed (legos, Mr. Potato Head parts, etc.). If you have a clog, use the plunger before anything else. If that doesn't work, it's time to call Mr. Rooter!
One major trouble area in a home is the bathroom sink. Whether it be the men in the home shaving their faces, or long hair getting brushed out and going down the drain, there are lots of bathroom activities that spell trouble for keeping your drains clog free. A plunger can help you deal with drain problems here, although you can also try a mixture of baking soda and white vinegar.
Showers & Tubs
It is important to keep your tub and shower drains clog free too! Hair, soap and shampoo is a bad mixture that can lead to gross clumpy clogs that leave you wading ankle deep in your shower. One suggestion is to pour boiling water down the drain and then using the plunger to relieve the blockage. If that doesn’t work, then you’ll need help from Mr. Rooter!
