Drain Cleaning in Arlington
Are you staring at a kitchen sink with standing water and a clogged drain? Is the toilet not doing its job each time you try to flush it? Is there a giant hair clog buried in the shower drain? All Masters Plumbing is here to help with drain cleaning service for every drain in your home.
Why Do Drains Get Clogged?
Drains become clogged for a variety of reasons, and it’s difficult to completely prevent the eventual clog. Kitchen drains usually get clogged over time because grease from pans and soapy detergents build up within the pipes. Almost like plaque hugging your arteries, this greasy, fat-filled residue eventually prevents any water from flowing through your pipes. When you notice it’s taking too long for the water to drain after you empty a pot of water, it might be time to have your kitchen sink examined.
Sewer & Drain Cleaning in Arlington for Your Home
The bathroom is another frequent location for drain clogs, and any number of issues can cause the drains in your bathroom to slowly stop working. Soap buildup can lead to clogs, but it’s usually the addition of hair that really causes a problem. Long hair is a common problem because it wraps around itself and soap and builds clogs over time.
You might think it’s only the shower where you need to worry about hair clogs, but you’d be surprised how many people brush and dry their hair over the sink, which leads to the same sort of clogs as the shower drain. In addition, falling makeup like powder and the occasional wad of toothpaste will also conspire to clog your bathroom sink.
The toilet is another common area that requires the occasional professional visit. If you can confirm your toilet is functioning properly and the problem exists in your pipes, you may require sewer and drain cleaning, particularly if your home has a well and a septic system. If you have an old plumbing system, it could show with repeatedly clogged toilets that won’t flush completely unless you tap the handle a few times.
No bathroom clog is too great for Arlington & Mansfield’s All Masters Plumbing and our comprehensive drain cleaning service.
How Can I Prevent a Clogged Drain?
You can reduce your Arlington drain cleaning cost by slowing the rate at which clogs form and keeping your plumbing system in good condition. Most of these simple options take virtually zero effort from anyone in the house and just require some changes in behavior.
Keep Drains Happy Without Chemicals
Try to resist the urge to dump chemicals down a clogged drain. Store-bought drain cleaners usually just make the problem worse, or they only remove part of the clog. In addition, various cleaning chemicals shouldn’t go down the sink, either. Try to choose natural cleaning products or use homemade cleansers made of things like lemon juice, baking soda, and vinegar.
Brush Your Hair Before You Shower
It’s almost inevitable that your Arlington shower drain will eventually need service because of a hair clog, but you can reduce the speed that the clog develops by brushing your hair before you shower to remove hairs that might fall out while you’re shampooing.
Also, try to stand away from the sink as you brush or dry your hair, or plug the sink while you get ready in the morning to reduce the likelihood of hair falling down the drain.
Put That Food in the Trash Instead of the Kitchen Sink
Similarly, do your best to keep food out of the kitchen sink by tossing uneaten food into the trash before washing your dishes. Even if you’re already dumping oil and grease in the trash, food also has a lot of sticky properties that can lead to clogs.
Tip: Try designating a special bin where you can put food, and use it for composting.
