Plumbing Solutions to Common Problems

Are you stuck doing the bulk of the repairs, maintenance, and other household responsibilities on your own? Is the upkeep and care of your property turning into an ever-growing list of chores that overwhelms you? Houses are a lot of work to maintain and require that you make a commitment for regular care. If you find that work obligations, family commitments, and other activities cause you to fall behind on household responsibilities, you should consider putting together a detailed plan that can be easily incorporated into a weekly schedule. While it might be tricky breaking it all down into manageable increments, your efforts will pay off in the end. As you make a plan, do not overlook the needs of your home plumbing system. With Roto-Rooter by your side, you have all the help you need to accomplish any plumbing project that comes your way.

Home Plumbing Inspections

One of the best services that Roto-Rooter provides is a complete home plumbing system inspection. A technician will come out to your home, thoroughly inspect every nook and cranny of your property, and take comprehensive notes of what he or she sees. This is particularly helpful if you just bought a house and you are unfamiliar with its condition. The former owner of the home may not have been as caring as you are. After the plumbing inspection is finished, the technician will sit down and clearly explain the most concerning areas he or she has noted. After answering the questions you have, the technician will also make great recommendations for certain products and services that will help improve your circumstances. Taking this information seriously and putting together a proactive plan will maintain plumbing issues and prevent them from developing into larger problems.

Clean, Repair, and Maintain

You know how they say you can't fix what isn't broken? The reality is you can clean and maintain your plumbing system and fixtures so that repairs are not necessary. Therefore, even if your plumbing isn’t broken, you should still maintain it regularly. Do you have clogged drains in your home? Consider the following steps for removing drain blockage and maintaining drainage flow in your bathroom and kitchen drains.

  • First, to remove a serious clog from a kitchen or bathroom drain, start by cleaning out as much of the blockage as possible by hand.
  • Use a long piece of wire or screwdriver to reach deep into the drain and pull out the debris and grime caught in the line.
  • After pulling out as much of the junk as possible, pour a good amount of Roto-Rooter cleaner down the drain to dissolve the clog.
  • After a few minutes of the cleaner dissolving the blockage, turn on the hot water to wash away the remaining debris.
  • After cleaning, pour boiling water down each drain once a week to strip away any developing clogs and maintain drainage flow permanently.
