There are many reasons that your drains might develop a clog. In fact, sometimes a foreign object is flushed down the toilet or rinsed into the sink. However, the number one reason for a drain clog is ignoring the regular maintenance needs of your drains.
Some on-going preventative steps that you can take to keep your drains in proper working order include:
Hot Water: For kitchen and bathroom sinks, and tub/shower drains you can plug the drain and fill the basin with hot water and then let it drain. This process will fill the drain pipe with hot water and loosen any debris that is stuck. Also, the pressure of the full basin of water will push any residue that is in the line through to the main sewer line and away from your home.
Don’t Use Chemicals: It is not recommended that you use any harsh over the counter drain cleaning chemicals in your drains. These liquids can cause your pipes to corrode and weaken, eventually leading to cracks and breaks. Not to mention the damage they can cause to the tank if you have a septic system.
Drain Covers: An easy way to minimize the chances of a clog developing in your drains is to install drain screens or covers. These are designed to allow water and other liquids to move through while catching large particles like food and hair. You can then throw what is caught in the screen away in the garbage can.If you start to notice a gurgling sound or bad smell coming from a sink, or water backing up out of the drain and filling the basin don’t hesitate to contact the professional and skilled plumbing team at Call Clint Plumbing of Pleasant Valley .
