Drain Cleaning & Clogged Drain Repair Services in Glen Falls
Getting yourself and anyone else ready to leave the house in the morning can be chaotic and stressful. Taking the time to be thoughtful about what is being rinsed down the sink is the last thing you have time for.

There is no shortage of conditions that will contribute to a drain clog, however, not scheduling regular maintenance service for your pipes is the number one way to cause a clog to form. Just like with any other part of your plumbing system, your drains need to be regularly checked and serviced to identify any minor issues that could eventually lead to major ones.
There are some things that you can do to help maintain the condition of your pipes and drains. These include:
- Drain Screens: Installing screens over your drains is an inexpensive and easy way to limit the chances of your drains developing a clog. These covers are designed so that water and other liquid will wash through them, but large particles that might contribute to a clog are trapped and can then be thrown in the garbage.
- Do Not Use Chemicals: The over the counter drain maintenance products seem like a good deal. They are easy to find and all you have to do is pour them down the drain. However, because these products contain high amounts of acid, they are highly corrosive and will cause your pipes to weaken and eventually break. Also, if you are on a septic system they can permanently damage the environment of your tank.
- Boiling Water: A good alternative to a corrosive drain cleaning product is simply boiling hot water. This process involves filling the sink or bathtub with boiling hot water and then letting the entire contents drain. The hot temperature of the water softens any stubborn residue that has formed and the high volume of water rushing down the drain helps to rinse it all away. Think of it as a very low-pressure jetting.
