If you’re a homeowner, you understand how frustrating it can be when your drains become clogged. Whether it’s a slow-moving kitchen sink or a backed-up shower drain, a clogged drain can quickly disrupt your daily routine. Fortunately, Service 360 Group offers professional plumbing services. We offer professional drain cleaning and drain cleaning repair services to help keep your drains functioning smoothly. Let’s walk through some of the common causes of clogged drains, how to prevent clogged drains, and how we can help with drain cleaning and drain repair.
Understanding the most common causes of clogged drains can help you prevent them from happening in the first place. Some of the most common causes of clogged drains include:
Preventing clogged drains involves good practices, such as avoiding the disposal of grease, oil, or food scraps down the drain, using drain guards to catch hair and debris, and regularly flushing drains with hot water or a mixture of vinegar and baking soda to remove buildup.
It’s advisable to call a professional drain cleaning company if you’ve tried simple DIY methods without success if multiple drains in your home are clogged simultaneously, or if you suspect a more significant issue like a damaged drain pipe or a sewer line blockage. Additionally, if you’re experiencing recurring or persistent drain and sewer problems, it’s best to seek a professional plumbing company.
Chemical drain cleaners can be effective in clearing minor clogs, but they can also be harsh and potentially damage your drain and sewer pipes if used improperly or too frequently. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully and consider safer alternatives like enzymatic drain cleaners or contacting a professional plumber for a thorough cleaning.
Common signs of a clogged drain include slow drainage, gurgling sounds coming from the drain, unpleasant odors emanating from the pipes, water backing up or pooling around the drain, or multiple drains in your home experiencing problems simultaneously.
The frequency of professional drain cleaning depends on several factors, such as the age of your plumbing system, the number of occupants in your home, and your usage. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to have your drains professionally cleaned every 1 to 2 years as preventive maintenance or more frequently if you experience recurring drain issues. Consulting with a professional plumber can help determine the best cleaning schedule for your specific situation.
Remember, if you have specific concerns or questions about drain cleaning or clogged drain services, it’s always best to consult with a professional plumber who can provide tailored advice based on your unique circumstances.
