We Clean Irvine's Basement Drains
If water is pooling in your basement, a clogging basement drain could be
the culprit. First, check your drain trap to see if that is the source
of the clog. In some cases, you may be able to dislodge and vacuum out
a basement drain if the problem is minor. If you cannot dislodge the blockage,
or the issue appears to be deeper in the pipes,
you need a professional.

Are the storm drains on your property functioning? If not, you risk flooding

inspect your storm drain to find the source of the problem.
Fast & Effective Sink Drain Cleaning
Is your sink

Toilet Drain Cleaning for Stubborn Clogs
You can resolve most toilet clogs with a household plunger. If a household
plunger cannot resolve the issue, you can try a household auger if you
own one. If the clog persists, our team can inspect your toilet and disconnect
it if necessary to find out what the issue is.
Keeping Utility Drains & Laundry Drains Clear
Some people recommend using harsh chemicals to clear out laundry or utility
drains. We do not recommend them. Steer clear of strong chemical products.
They are very toxic and can damage your pipes from overuse. Instead, schedule
drain cleaning professionals in Irvine to remove a stubborn utility drain clog.
Specialized Sewer Main Drain Cleaning
The first step for clearing out a main drain is locating and accessing
the "clean-out". Many homes have a
sewer "clean-out" access point that allows one easy access to the sewer system. If you home does not
have one, you may want to consider getting one installed. Clean-out or
no, our drain specialists can inspect your system. We can also snake your
main drain to getting it flowing again.

How to Avoid Clogged Drains
No one likes dealing with clogged drains, especially when the gunk and
debris that's preventing your water from flowing freely needs to be removed
manually. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to keep your
drains from clogging and ensure that water is moving smoothly.
If you want to avoid clogged drains, we recommend following these tips:
Tip #1: Use a Drain Cover. One of the simplest steps you can take to prevent clogs is to use a
drain cover in your sink or bathtub. These covers are designed to catch hair, food particles, and other debris
before the have the chance to make their way into your pipes. Simply remove
the cover and clean it regularly to prevent buildup.
Tip #2: Avoid Pouring Grease Down the Drain. It might be tempting to rinse cooking grease down the drain, but
pouring grease down your drain is one of the most common causes of clogs. Over time, the grease can solidify
and create a blockage, preventing water from flowing through. Instead,
let the grease solidify in a container and then dispose of it in the trash.
Tip #3: Be Careful What You Flush Down Your Toilet. Your toilet doesn't have a drain so it shouldn't matter what you flush,
right? Well - not quite. Like any other sink or shower drain, your toilet
can get clogged, too. So,
be careful what you flush. Only flush toilet paper and human waste down the toilet. Items like feminine
hygiene products, baby wipes, flushable wipes, and dental floss can cause
clogs. Over time, this can severely damage your drain and sewer line.
Tip #4: Avoid Placing Starchy Items in the Drain.
Pasta, potatoes, and other starchy foods can expand in water and create a blockage in your pipes. Avoid placing
these items in your garbage disposal or running them down the drain to
keep things flowing smoothly.
Tip #5: Schedule Regular Drain Cleanings. Finally, one of the most effective ways to prevent clogs is to
schedule regular drain cleanings with our professional drain plumber. We can use high-pressure water jetting
or other methods to remove buildup and debris from your pipes, which can
reduce the likelihood of clogs occurring.
Clogged drains are a hassle that can be avoided through simple preventative
measures. Taking these steps can help you avoid costly drain and sewer
repairs and keep your home's plumbing in top condition.
