Nobody likes having to deal with a clogged drain. Unfortunately, drain clogs are a reality that every homeowner needs to deal with at some point in time. And while you can count on AZ Water, Drain & Sewer to handle tough clogs, there are some easy ways for you to maintain clear, free-flowing drains.

In our many years of providing quality drain cleaning in Gilbert, AZ, we’ve found the following simple methods of maintaining clog-free drains to be quite effective.

Practice Proper Waste Disposal

Disposing of your waste in the right way can help keep the drain clear. Ensure no food or paper products are thrown down the drain. In case wastes such as food and particles get down the drain, call for drain snaking or hydro jetting services to unclog the pipe and eliminate the waste. You can also use a plunger to eliminate the blockage, but remember that it is only a temporary solution.

Install a Drain Cover

Be wary of letting hair build up in your pipes or clog your drain since this can lead to more serious issues. A drain blockage can be costly to unclog, as you’ll need to call a plumber for drain cleaning services. Always use the drain cover when taking a bath or shower to prevent your hair from going down. While this may seem like such a basic solution, it’s effective. You’d be surprised how much trouble it can save you from.

Be Wary of Over-The-Counter Cleaners

While store-bought chemical drain cleaners may be tempting to use because of sheer convenience, we have to warn you about them and their effects. The fact is that these drain cleaning formulas are harsh and can damage the interior lining of your pipes and can also be detrimental to your health. It’s better to leave the job of cleaning a clogged drain to the pros.
