We’ve all been there at least once or twice. You start to notice your sink or bathtub draining slower than it used to, and you immediately start thinking about how to fix it.
Maybe you go to the store and pick up some chemical drain cleaner. Or perhaps you grab a “snake” style drain cleaner and try to fish out the blockage yourself. Afterwards, you might see some marginal improvements.
Problem is, both of these methods can cause long-term damage to your pipes, and they often ignore the root of the problem. So you’re getting a temporary solution that may end up costing you big in the long run.
Instead of reaching for the drain cleaners off the shelf, call MB Plumbing, your Columbus plumbing company that offers professional drain cleaning services that will solve the problem at its source.
Why Do Drains Get Clogged?
As an experienced Columbus plumbing company, we’ve seen a number of different types of drain clogs, with many different causes. A bathtub clog and a toilet clog will likely have different causes, as will a clog in the bathroom sink and the kitchen sink.
With frequent use, every type of drain will eventually hit some sort of clog or blockage at some point. Different types of clogs can be caused by food, hair, soap, and build-up from minerals and oils. You may also have blockages that are closer to the surface, or some that are deep in your pipes – possibly even main line blockages.
If you want to avoid drain blockages, you can consider a hair-stopper for your bathroom drain. Make sure to throw out oils and greases from cooking, rather than pouring it down your garbage disposal. Also, try to avoid putting celery, starches, eggshells and coffee grounds in your disposal as well, as these all increase the likelihood that you’ll need to call a Columbus plumbing company for drain cleaning.
