The drains of your home are like the arteries of your body, when you have one clog, it upsets the entire plumbing system of your home.

And just like the circulation system in your body, each part of your plumbing system is connected, and what connects your plumbing together is your sewer drainage system.

This is the basis of why, F.H. Furr created Rooter-MedX. Instead of looking at individual clogged drains, we look at the entire system as a whole.

Clogged drains or slow draining pipes can lead to poor or inconsistent water flow, and that potentially causes complications with the entire plumbing system over time. Our Fairfax clogged drain technicians can quickly help you determine the reason your drains are having issues, and then come up with a solution so that your home’s drainage system functions as it was meant to.

Most clogged drains begin when some form of debris is washed down the sink, getting lodged in one of the elbows.

Here is a list of some of the common items that should never be washed down a drain:

  • Oil or grease
  • Gummy foods like pasta
  • Kitty litter
  • Paint or chemicals in general
  • Hair

Many clogged drains can be remedied by you without the help of a Plumber or Rooterologist™ as long as you use the right equipment or items.

  • Check and see if it is easy to reach hair or soap clog in the bath or shower. It can easily be checked by removing the drain screen.
  • Use a store bought sewer snake or even bent wire to grab and pull out the clog.
  • Use a proper sink plunger and try plunging, with about an inch of water in the bottom of the sink.
  • Cover the overflow holes with a wet rag or tape.
  • Still not working? Call the Clogged drain specialists, F.H. Furr!
Preventive plumbing maintenance is vital for making sure your home’s system healthy and working as efficiently as possible.

At least once a year, your home’s plumbing and drain system should checked and cleaned for maximum usage and to be ahead of the game if anything comes up. This is especially important when it comes to locations lined with tree roots or bushes.
