Clogged drains happen to everyone, and they are not fun. If your drain is completely blocked, the bathtub, shower, sink or toilet becomes full of water. At this point, the stubborn blockage must be removed through all the built up water, and chances are you will not be able to clear it using household remedies or drain products. If you have multiple clogged drains in your home at any given time, you will wish you had taken the preventive precaution of having your drains regularly cleaned and inspected.
If you have multiple clogged drains in your home at any given time, this can be a big inconvenience for you. In order to help avoid this situation, we have preventive maintenance available to regularly inspect your drains. For example, your kitchen sink and laundry drains may be connected in multiple places, and what happens in one can affect the other. Using the most up-to-date equipment in the plumbing industry, our licensed emergency plumbers are able to unclog toilets, main sewers, kitchen sinks, bathtubs, showers, floor drains, downspouts, area drains and any other pipe or plumbing fixture.
Your toilet, sinks, and tub all share the same drain. If you have a line blockage and not a fixture blockage it could affect more than one of them.
If you have something go down your kitchen or your bathroom sink drain such as a ring or a small toy, all is not automatically lost. Immediately turn all water off. Put a bucket under the drain pipe big enough to catch about a half gallon of water. Unscrew the two joint nuts near the bottom of the “J” trap. Your missing item should be easily found!
Do not use acid-based products to clear grease clogs in your sink drains. They will at best melt the grease and it will just re-solidify farther down the line. A bleach based product or a product that will change the grease into CO2 + water are far superior. Plus they are also much safer to keep under the sink with small children and pets around.
