To clean your drains, remove the stoppers throughout your home. Clean each one thoroughly, as food, soap scum, and hair can easily cling to stoppers and create problems.

If it is running slow you will need a more specific clog treatment to get whatever is in the drain to move through. Prevention on a monthly basis is key to clog free pipes. As you are continuing through this routine, be sure to clean all the drains in your home. There are a few that are easy to forget (laundry room drains, garage drains, guest bedroom drains). With these simple steps, your drains and pipes will remain clog free. However, there are some clogs that need professional help and we are here for you!
