Have you noticed that there is a build-up of excess water in your sink that should be flowing through but isn’t? This could point to a clogged drain. There are many reasons why a drain can be clogged, there may be a build-up of grease, hair, or other unwanted material. A clogged drain can come as a surprise to many homeowners as they don’t know it’s a problem until the sink doesn’t drain. While it’s a common occurrence, it is not an issue that can be resolved by homeowners themselves and usually requires the help of a plumber. A good preventative measure is to schedule a maintenance visit where we will check your drains for any clogs, big or small before they become a more costly repair.
The main tool used to fix a clogged drain is a drain snake. Not the animal, a drain snake is a flexible coiled metal wire tool that “snakes” into drains and clears out any clogs quickly and effectively. What the snake does is pull any drain blockage out through the top so that it can just be thrown in the garbage.
There are many preventative steps you can do to make your plumbing maintenance go more smoothly. One is to have covers on all your high-risk drains. Specifically kitchen sink and shower. In the kitchen, it can be easy for small bits of food waste to end up down your drain which can increase your chances for a clog. We all lose hair in the shower, if you know you shed a lot when you are washing your hair, investing in a drain cover that will reduce the amount of hair that ends up down there might be right for you.
