Tips For Avoiding Clogged Drains in Fairhope
If you have ever had a clogged drain, then you know how much you’d like to avoid having that issue again. There’s not much worse that will convince you to keep your Fairhope plumbing drains clean than having to deal with a stinky, sticky mess that can make you sick. Imagine a room flooding with wastewater from the commode or sink, and you’ll be able to at least envision what it’s like.
The good news is that there’s plenty you can do to avoid clogged plumbing drains. The key is to realize that even the smallest of clogs can cause problems that can be unhealthy.
How many times have you taken a shower at home or elsewhere and not long after you start the water you find yourself standing in ankle deep water because the water drains out slower than it’s coming in? If you look down at that water, you’ll see the scum floating in it.
Gross! This definitely makes you want to take something and poke down the drain to get rid of the clog. Most of us have experienced this and even worse scenarios -including the backup of sewage waters that we end up having to clean up with a mop.
When a drain gets partially clogged, it can be pretty difficult to clean it out. If it gets unmanageable for you, give us a call here at 5 Starr Plumbing so we can help you -day or night, 24/7.
