Five Plumbing Tips for Summer

Clogged drains in your plumbing can begin as minor issues but can rapidly develop into major problems. A clogged plumbing results in flooding, corrosion, and sewer backup that can be costly to repair. The good news is that here at Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter, we offer professional drain cleaning in Bellevue, WA to address such issues.

Apart from services such as drain snaking, taking preventive measures begins with understanding the main causes of clog issues, which we’ll be talking about below.

Food Waste

Food scraps are a major cause of a clogged drain in many homes. Avoiding clogging issues of this nature is as simple as refraining from pouring food remains down your drain, especially leftovers such as tea leaves, coffee grounds, chicken bones, and fibrous scraps. Other food items that shouldn't go down the drain are greasy or oily food remains as they can solidify, causing clogs.

Tree Roots

 If your underground plumbing has even the smallest of cracks, tree roots in search of nutrients can find their way into your drain system. Once tree roots are inside, they grow big, preventing proper drainage. In such cases, you'll need the services of a drain cleaning company like ours to firstly remove the clog before you can have your drain repaired.

Flushing Random Items Down Your Toilet

If you're using your toilet as you would your trash can, you can expect drain clogging. Human waste is the only thing that gets flushed down your toilet. However, if your toilet drain is already clogged and you're looking for a plumber, our professional plumbers can do an efficient job of removing the clog .

At Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter, we offer drain cleaning services at reasonable rates. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you avoid or fix your clogging issues.
