Keeping Your Drains Clean This Spring
A slow-draining sink or toilet is an annoyance, but so often they go ignored. If we can just turn the light off and let the bathroom sink slowly drain while we get back to watching TV, it’s not so bad. The thing is a clog isn’t going to go away on its own. In fact, over time it will just stop draining altogether. So to avoid clogged drains and the nastiness that goes along with them, let’s talk about tips for cleaning your drains and keeping your drains clean this spring from a professional drain cleaner!
Clean Your Stopper!
We tend to think of the problem of smelly or clogged drains existing solely in the pipes, but we’re forgetting something! Food, hair, and anything else that goes down the drain will get itself caught and stuck to the stopper in your sink. So, before you go breaking out the drain auger, take a look at that stopper. For kitchen sink stoppers that you can easily take in and out of the drain, it’s no problem to clean them.
Deodorize Your Drain
Whether it’s food or hair, the things stuck in your drain don’t smell good. If your drains do not spark joy, there’s only one thing we can do! Well, we can’t throw out our drains, but what we can do is deodorize them to get rid of the smell. While the heavy-duty drain cleaners might unclog your drain, it doesn’t make them smell any better.
When All Else Fails, Call a Professional!
If you’ve let the drain cleaning duties get away from you, don’t worry about it! It happens to the best of us. There’s no reason to cry over spilled milk when you can receive professional help from a plumber you can trust.
