One area that many homeowners overlook when it comes to home maintenance is their drains. When people schedule regular maintenance for their home, they should also do so for the pipes and drains going out of their home. The following information below will go over the suggested maintenance schedule for drains and the culprits behind many common plumbing problems.
Drains Should Be Cleaned Regularly
Just as a home needs a good annual spring cleaning, a technician should service the home’s drains at least every eighteen months. Why does the drain system need a good cleaning? Keeping the drains clear can prevent both clogs and line breaks. During the scheduled cleaning, the technician will inspect the home drains and the backyard sewer lines.
Some people assume that store-bought drain cleaning products are enough to keep drains clear. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Store-bought drain cleaners are bad for the environment, and with repeated use, they can cause damage to the home’s pipes.

Common Causes of Clogged Drains
While many people may be under the impression that clogs pup up overnight, this is not typically the case. Often a clog starts slowly and grows over time. This is why proper maintenance is important and why drains should be regularly cleared and cleaned by a professional.
Common areas for a clog include bathroom toilets, bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks, disposal systems, showers, bathtubs, backyard sewer lines, and more. What causes common household clogs? The following items are common culprits behind clogged drains. Never put the following down the drain or in the toilet:
- Food scraps
- Feminine products
- Paper towels
- Hygiene wipes
- Baby wipes
- Soap build-up
- Hard water build-up
If these items go down the drain, they can easily cause a clog. If the toilets start clogging, stop flushing altogether, the drains get clogged, or the water drains slowly, it is time to call Mister Quik. Mister Quik will quickly clear the clog and get the water flowing out and away from the home again. They can also remove any build-up that has been growing on the inside of the pipes.
