- Shower, tub, lavatory line: Hair and soap scum
Before You Call Us
Avoid Chemical Drain-Clearing Products
Chemical drain cleaners can do more harm than good. Because they typically don’t remove the entire clog, repeated use can erode cast-iron drain pipes, creating leaks. Hire us to professionally and safely snake and clear your drains.
Prevent Future Clogging
You can avoid clogs by watching what goes down your drains. Specifically, you should keep food scraps and grease out of kitchen drains (even if you have a garbage disposal), hair out of bathroom drains and everything but sewage and toilet paper out of toilets.
Maintain Your Sewer Lines and Septic Tank
If you have municipal sewers, hire a plumber to snake your main sewage every few years to remove tree roots that can lead to messy sewage backups. If you have a septic system, get the tank pumped out every three to five years to avoid potential problems and keep everything running smoothly.
Other Ways to Avoid Drain Trouble
There are a few others things you can do to prevent big problems with your drains. If you experience a leak, turn off the water to the entire house with your main water shut-off valve. Remove hoses from outdoor spigots during the winter to prevent frozen water from cracking the pipes and causing a flood. Never use an exposed pipe as a hanging rod for laundry. Doing so can loosen joints and fasteners. Fix plumbing problems quickly. Even small leaks corrode pipes quickly and cause water damage or mold.
