Continue reading for more information on how you can prevent clogged drains.
1. Keep Hair Out
When you shower, it is common to shed hair, but over time hair that ends up down the drain can build up and cause blockages. Catch the hair before it goes down the drain by installing a screen or other similar hair catcher in your shower.
2. Don’t Dump Grease
Pouring grease down the drain can cause build up on the outer edges of your plumbing. When grease builds up along the edges, other food particles can get stuck in the drain causing a blockage. Instead of dumping your grease down the drain, collect it in a spare can or jar and throw it in the trash when the receptacle is full. If your sink becomes clogged with grease, try pouring a mixture of boiling water and dish liquid down the drain. The hot water should help melt the grease, and the dish liquid should help dissolve the grease and oil. If you are unable to unclog your drain through this method, contact a skilled San Fernando Valley plumber to assist you in clearing your pipes.
3. Find Out the Cause of the Blockage
If the issue keeps reoccurring, you may want to consider having your pipes scoped by our San Fernando Valley plumbers. Reoccurring clogged drains could be a symptom of a larger problem. Having your pipes scoped by our expert plumbing team can give you some insight on just what’s causing the problem. The scope-line carries a small camera through your pipes, which allows our plumbers see what is going on inside the plumbing. The problem could be due to tree roots entering through the pipes or a collapsed pipeline.
