Drain Maintenance Do’s and Don'ts

As experts in drain cleaning in Phoenix AZ, the team from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix knows the importance of keeping drains working as intended. This is why we encourage our customers to be proactive about drain maintenance. However, there are some do's and don'ts when it comes to drain maintenance to keep in mind.

 

Do Install a Drain Filter or Cap

You'll be more likely to have a clogged drain in Phoenix, AZ if your drain doesn’t have anything to filter out debris, like hair and soap scum, that can get stuck down the plumbing. This is a problem that can be easily remedied with a cap or filter. With some drains, a trap can be installed to make drain maintenance easier.

 

Don't Rely on DIY Cleaning Efforts

While there are ways to do drain snaking in Phoenix, AZ yourself, it's not something we recommend. When not done properly, this common drain clearing method can do more harm than good by pushing debris down further. Drain maintenance should also not involve chemical drain cleaners, which can ruin pipes or speed up corrosion. This can also happen if you regularly flush your drains with hot water and vinegar.
