Simple Ways to Prevent Backups

Home / Simple Ways to Prevent Backups

We’ve all experienced backed-up drains at one point and had to spend time, and sometimes money, to address the problem. When you have a clogged drain that is backing up, it’s time to bring in a professional to help, but below are a few simple ways to prevent it in the future.

Install A Backwater Prevention Valve

A plumber in Mountain Brook, AL, from our team can install a backwater prevention valve in your home. This valve stops the sewage from coming back into your pipes.

Don’t Treat Your Drains Like a Garbage Bin

A common reason people call for professional drain cleaning in Mountain Brook, AL, is when they experience the consequences of not properly disposing of sanitary products, like diapers, paper towels, Q-tips, wet wipes, and tampons. Even if the product claims that it is flushable, it doesn’t easily break down and will cause problems in the drain and the city main.

Don’t Pour Grease Down the Drains

Another usual call our drain cleaning company receives is when homeowners got their drains blocked due to fat, oil, and grease buildup. They pour the hot grease down the sink, not realizing it will solidify once it cools.

Let the Drain Cleaning Experts Help You

We know that home remedies don’t always help with backups, and chemical drain cleaners can damage your pipes. With our expertise and professional equipment, we can help you get rid of this problem quickly and easily. One of the methods we use is hydro jetting, which uses highly pressurized water up to 4,000 PSI to eliminate congealed grease, accumulated debris, and invasive tree roots that cause backups.

Plumbing Professionals offers a wide range of drain cleaning services to put an end to your drain woes. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our proven solutions or to schedule an appointment.
