When is a Clogged Drain a Sign of a Minor Issue or a Major Problem?
Minor clogs usually drain slowly. The sink/tub may fill, then the water will gradually recede. When this happens, plunging or applying a drain cleaner will usually solve the problem. More serious clogs are indicated when the water keeps rising, and the water won’t go down the drain. If plunging and drain cleaners don’t clear the clog, it is an indication that the problem is deeper in the pipes than you can reach.

FAQs About Drain Cleaning
What Can Clog a Drain?
Many things can clog a drain. Hair and food waste are common causes of clogged drains, as are toilet paper, paper towels, mineral buildup, and tree roots that grow into the pipe. When clogs don’t go away on their own, a professional sewer and drain line cleaning may be in order.
What Are Some DIY Drain Cleaning Solutions?
When you have a clogged drain, you can plunge it or apply a drain cleaning solution (i.e., like Drano). These are safe and usually effective for minor clogs. You can also try and use a snake purchased from a hardware store, but you need to be careful; otherwise, you can damage your pipes.
How Can I Keep My Drains Clear?
It’s vital to monitor what you flush down your drains. Fats, oils, greases, paper towels, diapers, and wet wipes should never be flushed. You should also make sure that children don’t have access to toilets or sinks, because a significant number of clogged toilets and bathroom sinks in Ohio and Kentucky are caused by children’s toys that go for a swim.
It is a good idea to rinse your drains with hot water regularly. This helps break up fats and oils. You will also want to pour in some baking soda with a little vinegar from time to time. Another option is to apply enzymes that can help break down bacteria and clear hair clogs and other debris from your pipes. When applying any solution, always follow directions carefully and never mix chemicals; instead of giving you a more efficient drain cleaning, they can spark a violent and unsafe reaction.
