8 Drain Cleaning Tips for This Fall

Posted on: October 25, 2016

Drain cleaning is the best solution this season if you want to rid your plumbing fixtures of any troublesome clogs. However, some homeowners will put drain cleaning off to the last minute, allowing clogs to linger in their drains and ruin their plumbing system. A minor clog may not seem like much to worry over at first, but it can soon grow into a huge nightmare preventing you from using your most essential plumbing fixtures at their best. The clog may grow so bad that you may not even be able to use fixtures like toilets and sinks, ones that you use every day. This may result in lower levels of sanitation in your home, especially if you are experiencing toilet overflows. Though you may not have the tools and experience of a licensed plumber, you can still take drain cleaning into your own hands. Sometimes all it takes is a quick call to a drain cleaning service or a small investment of time and effort on your end to ensure your plumbing system remains issue-free.

How Can Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Cooling & Heating Help You?

Fortunately, Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Cooling & Heating is here to provide you with high-quality cleaning this season that will eliminate clogged drains as soon as possible. Even if you think your plumbing system is working well now, it certainly does not hurt to give us a call for inspection. After all, clogs will pop up when you least expect them, and we have a team of plumbing contractors who will be able to handle them all. We offer comprehensive drain cleaning services, including camera inspection and hydro jetting to eliminate even tough, hard-to-find clogs. Our plumbers know just how one drain clog can mess up an entire plumbing system, so that’s why we work quickly to ensure it does not even get the chance to disrupt any of your fixtures. With our help, you will be able to enjoy high-quality plumbing for the entire season, without even the thought of drain clogs crossing your mind.

How Can You Help With Drain Cleaning?

Again, you may not be a fully-trained and licensed professional, but you can still stop drain clogs from taking over your plumbing system in your own time. With that in mind, here are 8 helpful tips to help keep your drains spotless:

  1. Consider Strainers: For kitchen and sink drains, it is better to invest in a strainer that will keep hair, soap, or food particles out of your drains. The risk of clogging in these drains is high, considering they are dealing with all sorts of particles. Though the strainers will become blocked themselves, you can simply clean them out and keep them working.
  2. Boiling Hot Water: Pouring hot water boiled on a pot or tea kettle will prove to be a simple yet effective solution for drain cleaning. It will actually have a lubricating effect on any sources of blockage within the drain, loosening them up and making them much easier to remove.
  3. Throw Grease or Oil in the Trash: Avoid throwing grease or oil down the drain at all costs. It will eventually harden and make passage through the drainage pipe impossible. If you are looking for a safer way to discard any excess grease or oil, store it in a container then drop it in the trash.
  4. Always Use a Plunger: Every home should be equipped with a plunger. If you want a quick solution to any toilet or sink clog, this will be the tool to help bail you out. All it takes is a few quick but strong plunges to fix the situation.
  5. And Always Use a Drain Snake, Too: Drain snakes are appropriately snake-like in form, allowing them to reach smaller areas not possible with a plunger. They also feature a hook on the end to scoop out any materials. Drain snakes can be incredibly effective, but you need to be careful not to puncture the sides of older drainage pipes with them.
  6. Bent Wire Hangers: Perhaps you want to learn more unconventional ways to clean your drains and, in that case, you should definitely consider cleaning your drains with a bent wire hanger. A bent wire hanger will work in a similar fashion to drain snakes. It can fit into smaller places and scoop out any materials. However, be careful to not scratch or damage an older drainage pipe
  7. Use Dish Detergent: Though mainly used for dishes, detergent may also prove to be the perfect way to prevent toilet overflows. A ½ cup of detergent sitting in your toilet bowl for 20 to 30 minutes will work as a lubricant to loosen any source of blockage, and it’s much safer than chemical drain cleaners.
  8. Calling Dial One for Maintenance: Calling Dial One for annual drain cleaning may be the best decision you make this fall. Since we can supply you with camera inspection and water jetting you are guaranteed to have those clogs eliminated quickly. In fact, just by making a quick call our way, you can avoid the threat of drain clogs for the next year.

This company always makes my service experience pleasant. I get a courtesy call to confirm the appointment and to let me know the arrival time for the appointment. The plumber, James, gives a great explanation for the work needed and is very efficient at doing the job. I can definitely recommend this company.

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

Great Service and Awesome Price!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

My serviceman was Don. He was Awesome! I was extremely pleased with the service. Before starting he thoroughly checked the job out to see what was entailed. He helped me pick out the items I would need and took time to answer my questions and concerns.It was evident that he wanted to do a good job and the customer was first which was me. I was educated on the procedures. He told me what he needed to do, how it was going to be, and how long it would take. And he gave me a good price. Don is experienced and highly efficient. He is well-organized and neat. His work is eye-catching and eye-pleasing. There were no water drippings or stains left on my white tile floor. When finished, he left his work area neat and clean. He hauled old items away. He did an AWESOME job! I recommend Dial One Johnson Plumbing which I will be using again and again. And I will be personally asking for Don. When the job, was finished he thanked me for allowing him to serve me.Good customer service means a lot.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Exceptional customer service from Debra taking the initial call to James fixing the plumbing issue. My telephone call to Dial One was taken quickly and efficiently addressed; no long wait on line for a person to answer. My information on the problem was promptly taken and steps taken to help me. James arrived promptly and was working to fix the plumbing issue within minutes of arriving at our home. James definitely knew what he was doing, very knowledgeable and very personable. If Debra and James are the typical caliber of Dial One employees, Dial One is a solid service provide and be my “go to” company. My thanks to Debra and James, they made resolution to this problem a quick, easy fix for us.

Best Plummer Ever!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I called there office in a panic! There was water in the closet by my hall bath. I had already had three Plummer’s out and the all said the leak was fixed. The whole shower had been taken out and the cold water rerouted because of THE LEAK. Well there went a thousand dollars. But we still had the leak! We had to pay to have the tub and tile replaced another seventeen hundred dollars we still Have THE LEAK! They have to tear out some of the brand new tile and replace the faucet . And had to pay to have that repaired two hundred fifty dollars! Go into the bedroom in the closet this morning and THE LEAK is back!! All over the carpet now we are back to square one. I call your office and the lady that answered the phone was very kind and I was about to loose it. I felt like I had been betrayed by three different Plummer’s and did not know who to trust. She assured me that your technicians were the best and would find the problem. Then the man of the day showed up to my door same day mind you. And he did not know he was going to be the man of the day at least in my world. Curley walked me through each and every step of what he was doing and showed me how he eliminated each possibility to get to the root of THE LEAK! Finally a resolution was in sight! He found it with his trusty camera and plus all the water everywhere behind the wall. He showed it to me and I was so happy to see it could be fixed. I was thinking we must have a leak in the slap which would mean the tub and tile work would all have to be redone and I was so relieved Curley and his apprentice where very professional, kind, and just the best! They cleaned up everything like nothing had happened😁 My husband arrived right as they were getting ready to leave and I him if he could show him what they had done and he did. My husband was was very impressed with him as well and appreciated him taking the time to show him what the problem was. I can not say enough good things about Curley. I will recommend your company every one I know. Thank you for making my day by finding THE LEAK!
