Clogged kitchen drain

Homeowners rely heavily on their plumbing systems to keep their homes functioning smoothly. Unfortunately, many homeowners unknowingly damage their drains, leading to costly repairs and even more frustrating clogs. As experts in drain cleaning in Stamford, CT, JNR Plumbing understands the importance of maintaining healthy plumbing systems, which is why we want to share some common ways homeowners damage their drains and how to avoid them.

Pouring Grease Down the Drain

One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is pouring cooking grease or oil down the drain. While it may seem harmless, grease can solidify in your pipes, leading to clogs and backups. To avoid this, let grease cool and solidify in a container before throwing it in the trash and schedule regular drain cleaning services.

Flushing Non-Flushable Items

Many homeowners flush items that should never be flushed, such as feminine hygiene products, wipes, and paper towels. These items can quickly become trapped in your pipes, leading to clogs and sewage backups.

Using Chemical Drain Cleaners

Chemical drain cleaners may seem like an easy fix for a blocked drain, but they can cause more harm than good. These cleaners are often corrosive and can damage your pipes over time. Instead, call a professional drain cleaning company like JNR Plumbing for safe and effective solutions.

Ignoring Slow Drains

If you notice your sink or shower draining slowly, don’t ignore it. This can be a sign of a developing clog that could eventually lead to a complete blockage. Addressing slow drains early on can prevent costly repairs down the line.

Unclogging the Drain Wrongly

While trying to clear a clogged drain by yourself may be tempting, leaving this job to the professionals is essential. Improper use of a drain snake can damage your pipes, leading to leaks and even more costly repairs.

At JNR Plumbing, we specialize in drain snaking and other drain cleaning solutions. Our team of experts is equipped with the latest tools and technology to safely and effectively clear clogs and keep your drains running smoothly. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
