Regular drain maintenance can prevent drain pain from happening to you!

As they say, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The Drain Doctor can keep your system healthy with regular maintenance and cleaning. Regular maintenance and minor repairs to your drains are essential if you want to keep them clean and clear.

Let the Drain Doctor prescribe the products that will work best for your system. If you’re worried about using toxic chemicals that aren’t earth-friendly, rest easy knowing that the Drain Doctor trusts the non-toxic effectiveness of Drainbusters drain cleaners.

Here are a few things you can do around your home to maintain the longevity and effectiveness of your drains:

  • Keep drains free of items that clog them such as food, hair and soap scum.
  • When cleaning up after dinner, run hot water through the drain to prevent grease buildup and hard water deposits.
  • Check your bathtub stoppers every three months for hair or buildup and see if the stopper needs to be replaced due to wear and tear.
  • Have your home plumbing system regularly inspected for maintenance once every six months.
  • Don’t wait for the clog to grow and cause more serious problems. As soon as you notice that water seems to be draining more slowly than usual, it’s time to clear a clog.
  • Avoid using chemical-based cleaners as clog prevention on a regular basis as they can corrode metal pipes after awhile.
