People usually prefer to stop problems before they start. In the case of clogged drains, taking a few steps can make all the difference and make it less likely you’ll need to call a plumber for Drain Cleaning in Saginaw TX.
Add Hair Traps
to Bathroom Drains
Hair can quickly
build up enough to clog a sink, tub, or shower drain. One way to
limit this risk is to install hair traps in each of these drains to
catch most of the hair before it reaches the drain. Of course, you
need to make sure to empty these hair traps regularly as well.
Any Products But TP Down the Toilet
personal hygiene products say that they can be flushed, many septic
systems can’t handle them and they don’t break down well, so it’s
best to toss these products in the trash rather than flushing them
down the toilet. This will limit the risk of a nasty clogged toilet
Goes Down the Kitchen Drain
Even if you have
a garbage disposal, some items are tough chop up and shouldn’t go
down the kitchen drain. This includes really tough fruit peels and
meat scraps. Pour grease out of pans and allow it to thicken before
putting it in the trash. Grease will clog drains if it solidifies in
the pipes on the way down the drain, so it’s best to never put it
down the drain.
Use a Drain
Snake to Remove Clogs
If water isn’t
going down the drain as quickly as usual, try using a drain snake,
sometimes called a drain cleaning tool or a drain opener, to break up
and pull out whatever is starting to clog the drain. As long as it’s
a relatively minor clog located not too far down the drain, this
should do the job. For a more major clog or one that’s way down in
the pipes, you may need to call a plumber for Drain Cleaning in
