Common Drain Issues You Can Avoid

Often, we think that cleaning a clogged drain is simple and can be done by the average property owner. This notion stems from the fact that chemical drain cleaners are readily available in local hardware stores. The truth is that most drain issues, clogs in particular, require the help of a professional. So if you need drain cleaning in Tacoma, WA, your best bet is to count on the pros.

The good news is that drain issues can more or less be avoided. Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter is a drain cleaning company that can help you fix some of the common problems that may affect your drain. Watch out for the following problems:

Recurring Clogs

Frequently clogged drains are a sign of a bigger underlying problem, especially if the issue affects multiple drains at a time. You’d be happy to know that persistent clogs can be avoided, and can even be solved for good. Apart from drain cleaning services, you can prevent clogs from recurring by being mindful of what gets flushed down your drains.

Sewer Backups

While sewer backups are one of the most disastrous, not to mention unsanitary, plumbing emergencies that could happen due to a clogged drain, take comfort in knowing that this major problem can be avoided.

You can start by scheduling an appointment at the first sign of your drains taking a while to clear. If your pipes are the problem, we may recommend hydro jetting. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. 

Foul Odors

When clogs accumulate, bacteria propagate. You’ll know this has happened when there are foul smells coming from your drains. Fortunately, drain snaking can unclog your drains. This will spare you from the unpleasant odors that can also be hazardous to your health. It’s important to let a professional plumber handle all the drain issues that come your way.
