Plumbing Repair: Roto-Rooter Tips

This year, how much of a budget have you set aside for repairs, maintenance, and DIY projects for your home? Taking care of your property and adding useful additions to it go a long way toward growing its equity. In the future if you ever decide to sell your home, the equity will be a profit that will compensate you well for your efforts. With all of the different areas to worry and think about, it is easy to forget about one of the most important aspects of your house: the plumbing. Especially with plumbing repair in Albuquerque getting expensive with more and more serious problems, why not rely on someone who can help you stay on top and ahead of the game? Roto-Rooter has been a leader in the industry for years and provides customers with all the tools they need to be prepared to face it all. With that in mind, consider the following for your home.

Clogged drains are common, smelly, and very easy to take care of. Over the course of just a few weeks, drains attract hair, grime, soap scum, and dirt. As these things meld together, clogs grow to impressive sizes and completely shut off any type of draining. When this happens, all you can do it bust out a screwdriver and start pulling out what you can. As long as you pull out as much as possible, using a bit of pipe cleaning fluid will finish the job nicely. The acidity will strip away anything lingering and allow the pipe to drain well. It’s no substitute for a professional cleaning but it will help you avoid clogs.

Clogged toilets are a common happenstance that most homeowners conquer with a handy toilet plunger stowed away behind the toilet bowl, ready to unsheathe the moment trouble arises. In most cases, the plunger will handle a clog easily. Most clogs happen because just a little too much is being pushed through a 2-inch diameter drain at a time. To prevent this from happening, all you have to do is make sure that you split up each turn into a couple flushes if necessary and everything will drain smoothly. There are certain circumstances when a clog may be too serious and require the professional help of a Roto-Rooter technician. This occurs when food, garbage, plastic, stone, or metal is ever flushed. Using special tools, the technician will be able to pull out the blockage.
