Are slow drains driving you crazy? Do you put off doing the dishes (even more so than usual) because the sink takes forever to fully empty? Are your feet getting a bath as you take a shower? Sounds like you’re in need of a thorough, professional drain cleaning! Call us at (614) 276-1510 to get that taken care of so that you can resume regular activity without the frustration of water backup.
Once we’ve gotten those barriers cleared and water and waste are once again flowing freely, let’s discuss a few ways that you can prevent the problem from returning.
- Brush hair before showering – This can reduce the amount of hair that is shed while showering, reducing the hairball you’ll later have to deal with.
- Discard kitchen grease and oils into the trashcan – These have no place in a drain and should be thrown away in the garbage versus down the sink. Remember how warmed grease will turn solid when left on the counter or in the pan? Yup, it’ll do that in your plumbing too.
- Fill your sink with hot water and let it drain – This method creates a pressure drain that can help move debris through your plumbing and potentially help with small clogs, and the hot water can help clear some of the gunk that is narrowing the water flow path.
- Use a drain stopper or strainer – This will prevent undesirable materials from entering your pipes and causing build up or clogs over time.
Prevention can go a long way in reducing major blocks or backups, but it’s still common for everyday use of indoor plumbing to eventually lead to narrowed flow paths. Thankfully, there’s a simple solution! Call our expert drain clearing specialists at (614) 276-1510 for professional drain cleaning, and keep your pipes flowing freely!
