How to Prevent Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are a nuisance, but they can also be dangerous if you don’t deal with them. The best way to deal with a clogged drain is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Here are the best ways to avoid clogs.
- Don’t pour cooking grease or fat down the kitchen sink. Instead, save it in an old coffee container or milk container and throw it in the trash.
- Use a metal screen filter to catch food debris and hair from entering the drain.
- Pour hot water down the drain after each use to prevent sludge buildup.
- Call a professional plumber for annual drain cleaning.
If you have a stubborn clog that won’t go away, don’t accept it. Call us and let us fix it right now.
When to Call a Plumber for Drain Repair
When people have clogged or slow drains, they try to fix it themselves with a tool like a plunger or a chemical drain cleaner. However, chemicals can damage your pipes, and plungers don’t get to the root of the problem. Here’s when to call a pro for help.
- Slow drains
- Recurring clogs
- Multiple clogged drains
- Raw sewage odor coming from the drains
- Low water pressure
All of the above issues can result in larger, more expensive to repair problems down the road if not dealt with now.

Why Drain Cleaning Is Important
Maintain clean drains is crucial to protecting your entire plumbing system. And while most people accept clogs as commonplace, they don’t have to be. Taking preventative steps to keep your pipes free and clear is good, but it’s also wise to have a professional clean your drains once a year. Pro cleaning gets deeper into the system than you can, and makes your plumbing run like new.
