Preventative Drain Maintenance in Akron

Making Sure Your Home Plumbing Keeps Flowing

Clogged drains are a normal part of owning a home. When water washes down through the drain, food, dirt, and other particles often go with it. Over time, your drain will clog and the water will cease to empty from your sink or tub potentially leading to leaks and other disasters. However, this is avoidable. Wilson Plumbing & Heating can provide the preventative drain cleaning solutions that can make sure your pipes and drains are always running smoothly.

With preventative drain maintenance, you can not only save yourself a future headache and hassle, but you can also save money. Once a drain is clogged, it may be costlier to unclog than the measures that would have prevented it in the first place. Our Akron drain maintenance team can ensure you never have to deal with clogged drains again.

Reach out to Wilson Plumbing & Heating today at (330) 400-3334 for friendly, reliable service. We also service North Canton and the surrounding areas.

The Do’s & Don’ts of Drain Maintenance

Once your drains are clean, keep them that way by reducing clog-creating substances. In toilets, flush only toilet paper and human waste. Feminine products and baby wipes can cause clogs, so put them in the trash instead. Don’t pour chemicals or other products down the toilet or you may risk forming a clog.

Some preventative measure you should take include:

  • Keeping a mesh basket to collect food particles
  • Never pouring grease, oil, or shortening down the kitchen drain
  • Using a compost bucket to collect food scraps and improve the environment
  • Brushing your hair before you get in the shower to remove loose hairs
  • Washing your pet outside or using a washtub inside

If you don’t like the look of a screen on top of your drain, we can install a mesh cup between the drain cover and the pipe. To clean the drain, you’ll need to unscrew the drain cover and empty the mesh cup regularly. This method will significantly improve the water flow in your bathroom pipes.

Drain Cleaning Tips & Suggestions

You may not think to clean your drains like you do the rest of your home. But cleaning your drains every month can head off many problems. Use DIY methods such as salt plus boiling water, or equal parts baking soda and vinegar, to break up minor clogs and freshen your drains. Put on rubber gloves and lift up stoppers to remove any remaining debris. Flush drains with hot water.

If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen, use cut-up citrus peels and table salt to freshen your drain. Give them a whirl, then follow with very hot tap water to remove any odors and loose debris. Treating your drains with a healthy bacteria-based formula once a month will safely break up clogs down the line without damaging your pipes or sewer lines.
