Utilizing a Plumbing Snake to Clean Your Drains

Plumbing snakes are a great way to get rid of most blockages in your sinks, bathtub, and toilet. They are so simple to use that you can even do it yourself if you want to give it a go. There are manual plumbing snakes that can be bought from local hardware stores, and motorized ones for hire that go a little deeper.

We have the most powerful plumbing snakes and get to the bottom of any issues. And, hiring us to come and fix the blockage is usually cheaper (and easier) than hiring a motorized unit from your local store.

How to Avoid Drain Clogs:

Food: Food can cause clogged drains, especially if it is stringy or organic food that can attach to the inside of your plumbing and be hard to remove. The same goes for sticky food like caramel or candy. Even small pieces of food can accumulate over time and cause a blockage. The best way to deal with this is to dispose of organic waste correctly, putting it into your compost bin or food recycling rather than flushing it down the drain. You can also talk to us about installing a garbage disposal unit under your kitchen sink.

Hair: For bathroom drains, especially in the bathtub or shower, it is organic matter such as hair that can cause real problems. Not only can hair block a drain at the mouth, but, if it gets inside, it can create a blockage that is hard to remove. Remember to check the drains often and remove hair when you can. You can also think about investing in a drain cover that stops any hair from escaping down the drain. These catchers are easy to install and you can remove them at any time to remove the accumulated hair.

Flushing: Be careful about what you flush down your toilet, even if the items are small and look innocuous. Dental floss might not look like it can cause many problems but it can. Anything stringy, dense, or bulky can cause problems, and that includes sanitary products, paper towels, and more. The best thing to do is to place a garbage container close to your toilet for easy waste disposal.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
The most obvious sign of a clogged drain is water not draining down it. Your drain is also likely blocked if the water is slow-flowing or if you notice air bubbles bubbling up when the water is draining. If it is organic matter that is blocking the drain, you may also notice a bad odor coming from the drain.
Yes, there are ways to unclog the drain by yourself. First, check to see if you can observe the blockage and remove it from the mouth of the drain. Many people use chemicals to break down the blockage and this can work, but can also damage the pipes. A plumbing snake will likely help if you have access to one. If you can’t unblock it, give us a call.
There are many chemicals that can be used to clean your drains, but there is also a natural way to clean your drains and leave them odor-free, as long as you have the ingredients around the home. Mix up half a cup of baking soda with 2 quarts of hot water and pour it down the drain.
