Why You Should Avoid DIY Drain Cleaning
A professional drain cleaning can save you time and money in the long run. While we’ve all fixed clogged drains before, using harsh, store-bought chemicals can damage your pipes and cause structural issues that you may not be aware of until it’s too late. Attempting to take plumbing fixtures apart to fix a clog can also cause significant damage to your pipes.
At R.B. Travis, we can ensure that your pipes are clear without causing additional plumbing problems. As licensed plumbers, we also have access to top quality drain cleaning equipment like our hydro jetting machines. That’s why customers trust us to resolve their clogs quickly and safely.
A Drain Clog Can Be A Sign of Worse Problems
Sometimes, clogged pipes are more than just the result of blockages. Clogged pipes could be indicative of a broken or fractured pipe somewhere in your septic system or sewer lines. It could even be a sign that your pipes are eroding. Thankfully, our R.B. Travis Plumbing professionals are able to tell exactly where the problem is.
Attempting to fix pipe problems yourself can lead to the development of greater issues. Especially if your issue is with septic or sewer pipes, be aware that broken or cracked pipes can pose a serious health hazard. R.B. Travis is certified to control any dangerous situations.
How to Prevent Clogged Drains
Preventing clogged drains is essential for maintaining a smooth and efficient plumbing system. Here are some simple yet effective tips to keep your drains flowing freely:
- Use Drain Covers: Install drain covers or screens in sinks and showers to catch hair, food particles, and debris, preventing them from going down the drain.
- Dispose of Grease Properly: Avoid pouring cooking grease down the drain; instead, let it cool and dispose of it in the trash.
- Be Mindful of What You Flush: Only flush toilet paper and waste; avoid flushing items like wet wipes, cotton balls, or feminine hygiene products.
- Regular Maintenance: Schedule periodic drain cleaning and maintenance with a professional plumber to prevent buildup and catch potential issues early.
- Hot Water Flush: Regularly pour hot water down the drain to help dissolve soap scum and prevent grease buildup.
By following these preventative measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of clogged drains and maintain a healthy plumbing system in your home.
