A clogged drain can cause many issues, including damage that can cost a pretty penny. If you are looking to keep your drains working effectively and running smoothly, you should practice these tips along with scheduling routine preventive maintenance.
It is not a surprise that a clogged drain is one of the most common issues that plumbers Mesa AZ see. Clogged drains are caused by many things and can impact your sewer drains, sink drains, shower drains and bathtub drains. When any one of these become clogged, there is a high chance that flooding will occur, which will end up racking up bills. Not only will you need to pay to get your drain fixed, but you will also need to pay for any water removal and cleanup. So, what can you do to prevent clogs from happening?
First, we need to talk about what causes a clogged drain so that we can try to avoid those things.
Hair build-up is one of the most common causes. You can prevent too much hair from clogging your drain by purchasing a drain catcher. This will help catch the hair from going down the drain. When it comes to kitchen drains, avoid putting cooking grease down the drain. Also, no coffee grounds down the drain. To prevent dirt blockage from soap build-up and mineral build-up, use hot water after each use. Baking soda can also be a good cleaning agent to keep drains from getting blocked, plus it helps with odor! To avoid damaging your pipes, always use cleaning products that are safe for your drains.
There are some things that will clog that drain that are hard to prevent such as a tree root growing up from the ground. The best way to try and prevent these issues is with preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance should be done twice a year. This is when your plumbing and pipes get routinely checked and where a technician will check your water heater, faucets, toilets, sinks, drains, valves, pipes vents, and pumps, looking for any leaks, corrosion, loss of water pressure, along with any issues with water temperature.
If you do end up having a clogged drain, the best thing to do is to try to catch it as early on as possible so that the damage is minimal. This means paying attention to the signs of a clogged drain. When a drain is slow, making funny noises or not draining properly, get your drain inspected right away. A professional cleaning will be what you need to fix those issues. Only done by professionals, hydro-jetting uses high pressure to eliminate grease, oil, sludge, and stubborn buildup. This pipe cleaning method can be effective, is environmentally safe, helps break through tough blockages and save you money in the end.
