What Drains Can I Find in My Home?
All your home’s drains have an identical function, and Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Wilmington has extensive industry expertise in all issues impacting them. Drains may clog because of various causes, so finding the best solution depends on finding a trustworthy plumbing professional. We've described some drains you’ll find around your home and the reasons they clog:
- Bathroom Drains – Soap, hair, and toothpaste are the most common bathroom drain clog causes. You can install simple drain covers to prevent loose hairs from going down the drain as they wash out during your daily showers. We also suggest running hot water while brushing your teeth to keep your toothpaste from hardening in your pipes.
- Kitchen Drains – Particles like oil, grease, and bits of food are the main culprits clogging kitchen drains. When you clean your kitchen after a meal, these elements wash down your drain and collect on pipe walls. Oil and grease are especially harmful since they harden inside your pipes. While garbage disposals can reduce a household’s chance of clogs, people should still avoid washing specific foods down their drains, such as fibrous vegetables, meat, and bones.
- Floor Drains – Dust, dirt, and leaves are common particles and materials that clog floor drains around your home. You can find these drains in basements, laundry rooms, and garages. A clogged floor drain can cause backups and floor damage. These drains may often be out of sight, but you still need to clean them regularly to reduce your chance of clogs.
Helpful Tips on How to Fix Your Clogged Drain
One of the best starting points to decide if you have a clogged drain is watching your sink to verify it’s draining. If your drain is draining slowly or otherwise clogged, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Wilmington provides a list of simple ways to fix it:
- If your drain still has some water movement, prepare a pot or kettle of hot water while it drains. Boiled water effectively clears clogs caused by hardened oils and fats. Carefully pour hot water down your drain after all or most of the water drains. We also recommend scheduling routine drain cleanings and inspections, so your pipes drain effectively.
- Another proven method to remove or loosen clogs is using a drain snake and plunger. Sink plungers are smaller and easier to manage, allowing you to pull a clog close to the drain opening without difficulty. After plunging and pulling the clog closer, you can use a drain snake to pull the material out of your pipe. You should not flush removed clogged material down your pipe. Instead, we advise you to throw away that material in your trash.
- Your next step is to call a plumber if you still have a clog. An average drain snake cannot snag very deep clogs, such as tree roots invading your pipes and causing clogs. This clog type calls for more extensive, professional plumbing solutions.
