Anyone who has had a problem with a clogged drain has quickly come to realize that a properly functioning plumbing system is something that should never be taken for granted. A clogged drain should always be assessed by a licensed and trusted plumber who is capable of getting to the issue behind the issue…the issue that caused the clog in the first place. Grogg’s plumbers have what it takes to clear your drain and, more importantly, to educate you on what caused the clog in the first place so that the problem does not repeat itself.
Getting your drains cleaned is a wise investment in maintaining the functionality and hygiene of your plumbing system. Over time, debris, grease, and other substances can accumulate in drains, leading to slow drainage and potential clogs. Regular drain cleaning offers several benefits, including preventing clogs, improving drainage efficiency, reducing unpleasant odors, extending the lifespan of your plumbing system, preventing costly repairs, and maintaining a healthier living environment. If you're experiencing slow drainage, repeated clogs, or foul odors, it's a good indication that your drains could benefit from cleaning. While you can perform basic maintenance yourself, professional plumbers equipped with specialized tools and expertise can ensure a thorough and effective cleaning, helping to avoid more significant plumbing issues down the line.
When faced with clogged drains, plumbers take a systematic approach to effectively address the issue. Upon arrival, they assess the drain and the severity of the clog, using their expertise to determine the appropriate course of action. Utilizing a range of specialized tools, plumbers may begin by employing plungers or drain snakes to dislodge surface-level blockages in kitchen sinks or bathroom drains. For more stubborn or deeper clogs, they might turn to augers or plumber's snakes to reach and clear blockages further down the pipe. In cases of severe or complex clogs, hydro-jetting may be used, utilizing high-pressure water jets to break down debris within the pipes. To accurately diagnose and pinpoint the clog's location, plumbers might conduct a video inspection with a camera inserted into the pipes. If necessary, they could disassemble parts of the plumbing system to access and remove the blockage. Once resolved, they may offer advice on preventive measures to avoid future clogs. It's crucial to rely on the expertise of professional plumbers for persistent or deep-seated clogs to ensure a thorough and damage-free resolution.

How to Prevent Clogged Drains
In order to prevent clogged drains, you have to be conscious of the things you put into your drains and perform regular drain cleaning. If you have a garbage disposal, you may be tempted to throw various food items into it, but not all items can go through a garbage disposal. To err on the safe side, you should not throw the following items into your garbage disposal:
- Rice & Pasta
- Nuts & Seeds
- Fibrous Vegetables
- Oil or Grease
Each of these items can cause stubborn clogs in your drain that are hard to remove. Just like with your kitchen sink, you should also protect your tubs and toilets by being careful what you allow down your drain. Purchasing a hair catcher is a great way to protect against clogs in your tub’s drain.
