Clogged drains and pipes are common issues in many households and commercial establishments in Tucson. They not only cause inconvenience but can also lead to significant hygiene problems and potential water damage. At Curtis Plumbing, we understand the urgency and frustration that comes with clogged plumbing systems. Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing efficient and effective solutions to your drainage problems.

Understanding the Problem

Clogged drains can occur for various reasons. In kitchens, the culprits are often food particles, grease, and soap scum. In bathrooms, hair, soap, and toiletry products tend to be the main causes. Over time, these substances accumulate and form blockages, preventing water from flowing freely.

DIY Methods for Clearing Drains

Before calling in the professionals, there are a few DIY methods you can try to unclog your drains:

  1. Checking the U-Trap: The U-trap, located under your sink, is designed to catch debris and prevent deeper clogs. It’s often the first place to check when you have a slow-draining sink. You can usually remove and clean it yourself.
  2. Using a Drain Snake: A small pipe snake, available at local hardware stores, can be effective for dislodging blockages close to the drain. It’s a handy tool to have in your home for minor clogs.
  3. Natural Cleaners: A combination of baking soda and vinegar, followed by hot water, can help break down organic material in your pipes. This eco-friendly method is gentle on your plumbing system and can be used regularly for maintenance.
