Every single day our team at Pristine Plumbers has been providing Laguna Niguel residents and property owners with a wide variety of plumbing services. One of the most common issues we see and deal with are clogged up drains. Your pipe and drainage system just so happens to be one of the most important parts of any home or property. They keep your clean water flowing, and are responsible for getting rid of all of the wastewater that goes through your pipes on a daily basis. From your kitchen sink to your shower, tub, and laundry room, your drains see a lot of water and debris on a daily basis. Because of this, build ups, clogs and leaks are destined to happen. Have you noticed that they never happen at a convenient time? You are at risk of a clog, leak or flood any time of day, any day of the year. This is why, we at Pristine Plumbing are here to assist you with all of your drain cleaning needs in Laguna Niguel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
We know first hand how frustrating it can be when drains, pipes, and sewer lines backup. A variety of factors are usually at play to cause most clogs and build ups. Extreme buildup or clogs can cause slow drainage in sinks, tubs, and showers having you standing in your own dirty water. When water backs up or does not drain at all, it’s the most obvious sign of a clog. If you notice that your toilets are having issues flushing entirely or not at all, or are experiencing rising water levels in your toilet bowl, you definitely have a clog on your hands. When clogs are left untreated, they can lead to water leaks or your pipes bursting.
When water is leaking from pipes or there has been flooding in your home, you now have a potential health crisis on your hands. Leaking water can soak into the environment around it and begin to rapidly grow bacteria and mold. These bacteria can be very dangerous, and mold can even be toxic. It’s best to avoid this at all costs to protect all of the people and pets in the home.
Several things that can cause your drains and pipes to clog are:
- Grease, oils, cooking oils, or waxy substances
- Tree or shrub roots
- Feminine hygiene products being flushed down the toilet
- Large amounts of toilet paper being flushed down the toilet
- Soap buildup
- Mineral buildup
- Food debris
- Organic waste
- Small objects falling down the drains
It is best to avoid having any of these objects going down your drain when possible.
Proactive Steps to Avoid Build Up and Costly Repairs
Installing drain stoppers in your showers and sinks can help catch most of the hair that would go down your drain and attach itself to debris. We deal with a large number of calls in Laguna Niguel for clogged showers due to hair in shower drains. A drain stopper can help to save your pipes and are fairly inexpensive. Just be sure to clean them out regularly and replace them when needed.
Sink drain strainers are very similar to drain stoppers. Having one of these in your kitchen sinks can help to catch large food debris that can build over time. Even if you have a garbage disposal, it is best to avoid food from going in them. We recommend a grease trap instead.
Avoid commercial drain cleaners. These are filled with harsh chemicals that will strip down your pipes. Instead, you should rinse your drains regularly. We recommend doing this at least once a month. It is very simple, fast, and easy. Just pour hot water down your drains to help rinse away pesky residues. You can even add vinegar to the hot water for an extra cleaning boost that is also safe for your pipes.
You may also consider adding a lint trap to your washing machine’s drain line, and regularly inspect the hose so you can help avoid a clog.
