Clogged Drains

clogged_drains

That slow, annoying emptying of your bathroom sink. Too much tooth paste? Long hair? This is a relatively easy fix. Clogged bathroom sinks and bathtubs can be a real problem, especially for those of us with long hair. Often times, you will find the culprit – hair – just under the top of the drain.

The tool being used above, a “Zip Stick”, can be purchased at most big box stores such as Home Depot. The same clog is also common in bathtubs and the Zip Stick often works well there, too.

Many of these calls could be avoided by taking greater care in what you put down drains – especially the kitchen sink drain; the most used and most clogged drain in the house. I also recommend regular treatment with Bio-Clean, a biological drain cleaner sold only through plumbing contractors.
