Roto-Rooter Plumbing Guide for Bathroom Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining a property, there are many different areas that need to be taken care of. Overlooking any of these areas for too long can result in serious problems. One system in particular that is often overlooked is the home plumbing system. One of the best ways to stay on top of maintenance is to schedule an annual Roto-Rooter system inspection. During an inspection, a technician will come to your home, perform a full-system sweep, and then present you with important information concerning the various areas that need attention. This will keep you on the ball and hopefully prevent serious plumbing problems in the future.

Tips and Tricks

Here at Roto-Rooter, we are dedicated to the customer experience. We are happy to provide the tools and products necessary to customers who want to learn proper preventative maintenance and repair. One area in particular that experiences frequent problems is the bathroom. To ensure that your toilet and drainage system function properly, consider the following tips and tricks:

  • Keep a toilet plunger stowed beside each toilet bowl in your home. As soon as a clog starts to form, the plunger will be your first line of defense. Most clogs are only system hiccups that can be easily resolved in just a few moments. Even if the plunger cannot take care of the entire clog, you can at least prevent water from overflowing.
  • Make sure that everyone using your restroom facilities understands the proper usage of the commode. Under no circumstances should garbage, plastic, cardboard, or anything else of this nature be flushed down the toilet. If these things are flushed, you are in for some serious blockages that can be difficult to remove.
  • To ensure the drainage flow always functions properly, it's important to use product cleaners on a regular basis. One product in particular that you should always have on hand is Roto-Rooter drain cleaner. This effective cleaner is powerful and dissolves blockages on first contact. Use this once or twice a month and there will be fewer instances of clogs and blockages resulting in overflow.
  • For serious clogs that cannot be resolved with a plunger or powerful cleaner, a plumbing snake is a necessary tool. The plumbing snake is an extremely long plumbing tool that has a hook on the end and is designed for twisting deep down into the drain line. Use it to pull out clogs and anything else that does not belong. This will help restore drainage flow quickly and efficiently.
