The Importance of Drain Cleaning

Regular drain cleaning offers several benefits for homeowners:


Preventing Clogs

By removing accumulated debris, grease, hair, and mineral build-up from your drains, you can prevent clogs leading to slow drainage or complete blockages.


Reducing Odors

Foul odors emanating from drains are often caused by trapped food particles, bacteria, or mold. Regular cleaning helps eliminate these sources of unpleasant smells.



Clean drains allow water to flow freely, reducing the strain on your plumbing system. That helps maintain optimal water pressure and ensures efficient operation.

Signs of Clogged Drains

Recognizing the signs of clogged drains can help you address the issue before it becomes more severe. Look out for the following indicators:

Slow Drainage

If water takes longer than usual to drain from sinks, showers, or bathtubs, it may indicate a partial clog in the drainpipes.

Foul Odors

Unpleasant smells coming from drains suggest the presence of organic matter trapped in the pipes. It can be an early sign of a developing clog.

Gurgling Noises

Strange gurgling or bubbling sounds when water drains could mean a blockage, causing air to get trapped in the pipes.

Water Backup

Water backing up into sinks, toilets, or tubs indicates a significant clog that requires immediate attention from a professional plumber.

Effective Drain Cleaning Methods

Several DIY methods can help maintain clean and clear drains:

Boiling Water

Pouring boiling water down the drain can effectively remove minor clogs caused by grease or soap scum buildup. Be cautious not to use this method on PVC pipes, as hot water can damage them.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Combine equal parts of baking soda and vinegar, pour the mixture down the drain, and let it sit for about an hour. Flush with hot water to help remove clogs and eliminate odors.


Use a plunger to create pressure and dislodge clogs in sinks, showers, or toilets. Ensure a tight seal around the drain and vigorously plunge up and down to break up the obstruction.

When to Call at Licensed Plumber at Larry Stinson Plumbing

While DIY methods can be effective for minor clogs, certain situations call for professional drain cleaning services:

Routine drain cleaning is essential for your plumbing system’s longevity and optimal functionality. If you encounter persistent clogs or require professional assistance, don’t hesitate to contact a trusted plumbing service.

Here are five frequently asked questions about drain cleaning, along with their answers:

It is recommended to have your drains professionally cleaned every 1-2 years as a preventative measure. However, the frequency may vary depending on factors such as the age of your plumbing system, usage patterns, and the presence of recurring clogs.

While chemical drain cleaners can temporarily relieve minor clogs, they are not recommended for regular use. These cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can damage pipes and may only offer a temporary fix. It's best to consult a professional plumber for effective and long-lasting solutions.

Professional drain cleaning is still beneficial even if you don't have any visible clogs. Over time, debris, grease, and mineral buildup can accumulate in your pipes, leading to blockages and restricted flow. Regular cleaning helps prevent potential issues and keeps your drains running smoothly.

Plumbers use various methods depending on the severity of the clog and the specific circumstances. Standard techniques include hydrojetting, which uses high-pressure water to clear blockages and drain snakes or augers to break up or remove obstructions physically. Plumbers may also utilize video inspection cameras to identify the source of the problem.

Proper maintenance can help keep your drains clear. Avoid dumping grease, food scraps, and non-flushable items down the drain. Use drain covers to catch hair and debris, and periodically flush your drains with hot water. Additionally, periodically pouring a mixture of baking soda and vinegar followed by hot water can help prevent buildup.

I had maintenance service for a tankless water heater today. As always the service tech arrived on time, did an excellent job, cleaned up after the project and told me what you do if I had any problems. Stinson plumbing is always my first choice for plumbing needs.

Terrific communication - I worked with Corey, mainly. Everyone was friendly and joking while staying focused on the job I called them out to get help with (they didn't try to tack on extra jobs). Corey listened attentively, used what I said to assess the problem. Checked everything out, gave me a quote. Came out and did the job in a few hours and the cost was what he quoted. Showed some possible issues down the line but didn't pretend the issues were imminent to frighten us into having the work done immediately. It's tough to find people you can trust for things like this, and I wouldn't hesitate to have them work on my house again.
